Edgewater Casino Expansion

Vancouver Not Vegas, a non-partisan coalition, is holding a forum on the BC Place development which is to include a substantially expanded Edgewater Casino.

It's taking place tomorrow, Wednesday February 9th at the Chinese Cultural Centre and will feature addresses by Sandy Garossino, Peter Ladner and Bing Thom. The forum will be followed up on February 17th by a Public Hearing at City Hall.

Vancouver's downtown feels increasingly sanitized and a casino development on this scale doesn't send a great message as far as the cultural life of the city is concerned.
