Anti-casino activist and art gallery owner Graham Crawford dropped by for a noon live chat. He talked about why he thinks a gaming facility in the city's core would be harmful, and answered viewers' question about his point of view.

The day before, businessman P.J. Mercanti explained his plans for a $200-million casino-hotel complex, and said that it would create good jobs and bring first-class entertainment to Hamilton's downtown.
