The opposition to a downtown Hamilton casino continues to pour in.
A group of 79 local musicians, club owners and promoters have released a statement outlining their concerns.
It states that a large entertainment complex, such as the proposal being pushed by Carmens and the Hard Rock Group, could potentially harm local, independent music venues and promoters.
The statement adds that "the current revival of our wonderful downtown is due in part of a growing number of small local businesses and a strong, vibrant arts community".
Max Kerman of the Arkells, Jeremy Fisher, Young Empires and Monster Truck are among those who've signed the statement, along with local venues like The Casbah and This Ain't Hollywood.
