Will the Canadian Senate Approve Single Event Sportsbetting?

Looks like the Republicans in the US senate aren’t the only ones opposed to online gambling! There is a bill that will reach the Canadian Senate floor in which a vote will be taken as to whether or not single event sportsbetting will be allowed. It’s interesting that a Democrat introduce the bill. The bill proposes individual provinces to allow single event betting as opposed to multi-game betting that is now available. It is unlikely that the bill will pass as the Democrat’s counterparts are objecting strenuously to it. (Sound familiar?) What is surprising here is that sports leagues are also opposed to this type of sportsbetting, suggesting that problems could “pose a threat to the integrity of the games.” The vote is expected to occur at the end of the month and we will keep you informed as to the outcome.
