“With the prohibition style lock out laws slowly chipping away our culture, entertainment and freedoms, we are finding the chords of guitar replaced with the ring of slot machines, the stages with jumping castles and the late night applause with early morning chores.
I offer you a glimpse into the future with our second casino on the way, the halving of our recreational industries, the divide in community ever growing and aided by out of touch dictators. A once promising city will be left a cultural wasteland with an ever looming musk of normality and mediocrity.
A 24 hour city is a must for all walks of life to co-exist. I ask you to roll a dice on the people, shed conformity, bet high on your beliefs and raise the pot for the future. Otherwise the house will always win.” - Denzel Maple
