The Era of Gambling in Ontario

If Quebec wants to preserve its monopoly with Loto-Quebec, Ontario wants to change the era. In the text of its annual budget, it says: “It’s time to move Ontario out of the period of gambling prohibition and treat Ontarians like adults. “. That’s pretty clear! The government has even decided to turn the licensing over to the Alcohol and Gaming Commission. Behind this liberation, we can think that it is an awareness of the responsibility of the province’s population, but we must especially see a story of big money and a certain pragmatism. Indeed, the criticisms are flying. Opponents denounce the danger of this law which could incite the population to gamble and thus create a new market for addiction. The provincial government responded by saying that the market already existed, that private operators were attracting many gamblers illegally and were not paying any taxes to the province.
