Single-Game Sports Betting Proposal Triggers Opposition in Canada

A bill proposed by Canadian MP Joe Comartin to legalize single-game betting in the country has seen its first opposition in shape of Major League Baseball officials.

Even though it has enjoyed a good run through the parliamentary committees and readings, Bill C-290 has encountered an obstacle when it arrived to the Standing Senate Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs for consideration, as the committee's third round of discussions on its implications saw the opposition from senior Major League Baseball officials Paul Beeston and general counsel Thomas Ostertag.

Apparently, the two expressed concern that single game wagering could cause sport corruption to thrive, but also open sports up to public perceptions of a lack of integrity. As a result, they say, an increase in problem gambling could occur.
