"So now we are obliged to build a ca$ino in downtown Hamilton so that people can exercise their free choice to go or not go?" --- Nope. Did not say that. I'd say we should have the freedom to do so.

"How about instead, those who want to gamble can exercise their free choice to take a shuttle out to flamboro downs, or drive to Brantford or Niagara or wherever?" -- So it's ok for someone else to have the problems? Is this classic NIMBYISM (Again not picking on you, just devil's advocate here as I'm still trying to decide for myself)

"You make it seem as if we could be the white knights of gamblers, striking a blow against the forces that with-hold them from being able to gamble downtown - the reality is that no gamblers need a ca$ino downtown, but the future of the downtown core actually depends on the positive/negative impacts of new developments in the core." --- Completely agree with this. Is there any source and reference that makes this case? I'd love to read it.
