But any way you slice it taking money out of the MSI fund to allocate it to the arena is going to take away from community initiatives.

Lottery? Keno? That was the WC proposal. Frankly I'd be disappointed if the Cons ran with it. Just another debilitating form of gambling that robs money from families that could otherwise use it. Hey why not suck money out of another addiction. Democratic Government shouldn't be benevolent..
Please, I am so sick of the morality police saying that the government is robbing people with gambling. Guess what? It's one of the oldest forms of entertainment in the world. If I want to spend my spare money in a Casino or on a lottery then what the hell do you care?
