The mayor of Niagara Falls says the state government in Albany is guilty of economic genocide in his community by draining so much money out of the Indian run casino while other business on the U.S. side watch their Canadian counterparts across the river prosper.
Mayor Paul Dyster says the Seneca run casino and the spigot of cash Albany has created for itself leaves the western NY city high and dry.
These are strong words to direct at Albany, but the Falls has always had a shabby image on our side. Remember the Love Canal ?
Proof positive that doling out casino rights to "sovereign" nations is not a panacea for local economic problems.
