  1. We stopped the Casino once and we can do it again.

  2. Vancouverites don’t want a casino and we don’t need a casino in our city. There’s better use for BC crown land that are more suitable for BC families. We could explore prospect of Family Entertainment Center (FEC), which is more in line with the sporting lifestyle of the stadium. There are many successful models in North America. It will likely create more jobs and great destination for all ages, as well as locals and tourist alike.

  3. My mother developed a serious gambling problem, she promised us many times she would stop and instead was lured back hoping she could win back the hundreds of thousands of dollars she lost to the big casinos. She almost bankrupted her family. I DO NOT SUPPORT THIS FACILITY…or any gambling facility in our city. Please stop this nonsense.

  6. My father spent all of his time and money on lotto – but only after severe brain injury in his late 50s; he was sure he’d win before he died, like the one guy or woman on tv who won when he didn’t. Every time he had an operation, he would ask us to make sure that we bought him his tickets. It was sad because he was so addicted he would ask anyone for money for tickets, no matter what the situation. More gambling is not what people need; it’s just a terrible weak spot that the governments are using to profit off of people’s addictions, and the hopes of the impoverished.

  7. There are so many real sensible reasons not to have a the proposed casino , …but the most important reason to me is that we must think of all our “Children” who are the innocent ones who will suffer the most from the consequences of the proposed casino.

  8. Richard Smithies

    Gambling plays to all the worst sides of human nature – addiction, weakness, family discord, prostitution, organized crime, money laundering, gambling tourism and fostering a “something for nothing” mentality. The social dis-benefits of gambling far outweigh any economic benefits. There are far better uses for the Crown lands that Edgewater occupies. Stop the Casino project again and let’s be done with it.
