The real problem with the new casino? It’s not soaking the rich, just the poor

April 6th, 2010 · 7 Comments

Charles Campbell over at the Tyee has an interesting take on the proposed new casino at BC Place, one that I haven’t heard before. To wit: the real problem with the current casino being planned is that it’s just another low-rent operation, not the kind that’s destined to attract the big spenders, but just another mechanism for wringing more money from the class of gamblers just above bingo halls.

A worthy entry to what I’m sure will be an ongoing debate about this strange proposition.
