A Canadian bill that would amend gaming laws to permit single-game betting?stalled in the Senate for two years?is back on the front burner with Minister of Sport Bal Gosal giving his support to the measure. The bill, originally launched in September 2011 as a private-members bill by MP Joe Comartin, already has received overwhelming support in the House of Commons.
Gosal said Canadians spend millions of dollars at online casinos and sports-betting websites outside of Canada. He said Canadians could be spending that money at home with better odds and more wagering options.
Gosal also said the single-game betting bill should be thoroughly vetted before it goes back to the legislature.
