Marshall’s ‘real look’ at casinos
INDEPENDENT SENATOR Tony Marshall wants Barbados to give “serious consideration” to legalising casino gambling.
He said yesterday in the Senate that while he did not personally support the business, he was trying to tackle the issue realistically.
“I want to suggest that the introduction of casinos in this country, whilst not favoured by the church, must be given very serious consideration.
“I do not believe that it is reasonable to continue to object to the presence of casinos when in fact Marhill Street [in Bridgetown] is a casino.
I do not support casinos; let me make that point very clear.
“I’m against it, but I’m trying to use a real approach to the problem.”
