The Canadian Senate readies for the debate of private member bill C-290 which will allow for betting on single event sports games. The controversial bill has already passed in the House of Commons with unanimous consent, spending little under an hour under scrutiny, according to the Canadian Gaming Association.
The bill has garnered wide-spread criticism from pro and amateur sporting leagues, problem gambling specialists and politicians. Liberal Sen. George Baker expects the bill to die in the Senate this week criticising the way the bill was passed in the House with the opponents not being given the opportunity to address their concerns to MP's. He even said that: 'The legislative function in the House of Commons is in omni shambles.'
Tory Sen. Bob Runciman admits that how the bill passed in the House deserves legitimate criticism, but also thinks the bill could still stand on its merits after senators take a closer look at the legislation, adding his own estimation: 'I haven't given up the ghost yet."
