This petition was delivered to:

Senate of Canada

Pass Sports Wagering Bill C290

    1. British Columbia Lottery Corporation
    2. Petition by

      British Columbia Lottery Corporation

      Burnaby, Canada

Passing this bill will allow Canadians to place single-event sports wagers in a legal and regulated manner.

The unregulated, illegal sports betting industry is already accepting single-event wagers and this is not in the best interest of Canadians. Passing this bill will ensure the funds are kept in the provinces to benefit everyone through healthcare, education and community programs.

Regulating single-event bets also ensures there are checks and balances in place to protect players and address the concerns raised by professional sports leagues. By not supporting Bill C-290, the Senate is encouraging players to continue turning to illegal gambling in Canada to meet their needs.

      I support legislation that will allow me to place wagers on individual sporting events while dealing with organizations that are governed by the same regulatory guidelines applicable to all other gaming options (casinos, lottery, PRO*LINE) currently available within Canada.

      Additional employment in border cities like Windsor. It would also take the profits going to off shore online sports books and put it in to tax revenues.
