No Casino Sudbury Petition
Dear Mayor & City Councillors -
Don't Gamble with Our City!
We say "NO CASINO IN SUDBURY!" and we want you to oppose expansion of casinos in our community. Casinos are bad social,economic & government policy.
The truth about casinos & gambling is that the community loses, and it is more than just the tens ofmillions (over and above the pittance that they give backingrants)that will forever leave our community each year; the odds are stacked against us so don't be deceived.A casino comes here to suck money out of our economy.
Casinosdo not provide facilities at "no cost to taxpayers". There is a cost, and it is wildly understated.Research confirms the resulting social impact will include:tens of millions of dollars annuallyleavingour local economy, increased crime and money laundering, increased health care costs, addictions, unemployment, welfare,family breakdown, damaged finances, anxiety, depression & evensuicide.
Take the time to learn the true costs by looking at theresearch.
"Our governments should not be preying upon its citizens to create more addicts by raising money from people who can't afford to gamble by promising them a dream that isn't going to come true" Warren Buffett
