Yes, we all should have a say in what happens downtown.

Everything else that he says is wrong. He has not done the math and he has not read the reports. He admits it in writing even! It is embarrassing that we have let someone this obtuse become a leader of our city.

The casino WILL cost us more than it brings in. It WILL result in higher taxes. It WILL slow down development in the core. It WILL have a detrimental social effect. It WILL NOT increase tourism. All of these effects are well known and proven in various studies and through basic observation and analysis of existing casino cities in Ontario (Niagara, Brantford, Windsor, etc). If only our "leaders" would take the time to read, understand and discuss them, we wouldn't be in this mess.
