Re: Casino opponents silent on possible TFN option, letter to the editor, Feb. 28

Those who say no to a casino in Delta are not so much concerned about what others do, but appeal to members of Delta council to do the right thing themselves.

Are they willing to jeopardize the health and atmosphere of our farming/family community for the gain of dirty money?

Please take the time to watch the "Laundromat" episode of W5 that shows casinos are a magnet for money laundering.

The B.C. Lottery Corporation seems to be the driving force behind new casinos, not our communities. What would hinder the Tsawwassen First Nation from having a casino? Then we’d end up with two in our community.
