  • summary

    : Gambling in Canada is a dispassionate look at activities that have become major pastimes for Canadians within the past generation. It documents the popularity of gambling and its importance as a source of revenue for provincial and territorial governments. It assesses a host of studies on problem gambling and its social and financial impacts. Finally, it urges the governments who benefit most from gambling to mitigate its worst effects. Perhaps the most controversial recommendation in the report is a ban on video lottery terminals or VLTs outside of casinos or casino-like settings.
