$18 billion wagered since Bill c290 entered the Senate of Canada

469 days since the Bill c290 entered the Senate in Canada and it looks as it is only gathering dust. Meanwhile, as a comeback measure, the Canadian Gaming Association (CGA), placed a counter on the C290NOW.ca website to show how much money is being illegally wagered through offshore Internet gambling sites or bookmaking operations, both linked to organized crime.

Bill Rutsey, CEO of the Canadian Gaming Association, reported that Canadians have wagered more than $18 billion since the Bill entered the Senate, clearly showing that Canadians want a legal solution to this. He added that the Senate’s position is forcing Canadians “to turn to unregulated Internet sites and criminals” and that its confusing to him why some Senators are still opposed to this regulation.
