Ah, so it was RTH, and not yourself, that added the quotes? Interesting.

I agree. The article was an interesting read. The casino flourished when our money was worth 2/3 of the US dollar, there was nothing comparable nearby, and the enconomy was not in recession. Then a bunch of blows in quick succession, and now it's flatlining.

I am thinking that a smaller scale casino, for example, something you would do as part of an evening, is probably Hamilton's best route. You know, dinner, maybe play a few games, catch a show (music, movie, game, whatever), and then maybe some post-event drinks. The gaming wouldn't necessarily be the focal point. I know that's not going to happen, but I fully support a casino downtown.

I disagree that it would make some sort of a 'dead zone', nor would it attract more addicts as you suggest. Perhaps more vigilant policing would help that, and no statistics back up that claim (see the chief's comments from the meeting earlier at city hall).
