Single-game betting Bill C-290 gaining more steam in Canada

Dec 12, 2013 |
The Canadian Chamber of Commerce is calling for support on the bill which would legalize single game sports betting in Canada.

The president of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce is asking the senators who are debating Bill C-290 to focus their debate on what would be permitted under the bill instead of the morality of the issues.

If the senate agrees to the bill, the provinces would have a policy lever to decide whether betting on the reult of a single a single sporting event would be permitted, and if or what any conditions would be included.

Senators are still debating merits of the bill after some national sports organizations claimed single sports betting could lead to game fixing.Still the bill has passed in the House of Commons almost two years ago.
