Thursday July 2,2015 : CANADIAN SPORTS BETTING BILL DIES

Parliament adjourns without holding third reading.

Sports betting in Canada has reportedly been shelved as the Canadian Senate adjourned for the summer without a third reading or vote on private member bill C-290

The bill, which seeks to amend the criminal code to allow single-game sports betting, has been kept in protracted limbo in the Canadian Senate following its unanimous approval and passage from the House of Commons in 2012.
