Over the weekend Alberta's new Finance Minister revealed that the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission is considering legalizing and regulating online betting in the province.
Joe Ceci said that the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission is considering the move, which would bring it in line with other provinces that have okayed the activity. Those provinces are: Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Ontario, and British Columbia.
AGLC is a significant revenue line for the province (contributing about 5 percent of all government revenues) … and they have come and told me about their hopes and dreams for the future,” Ceci said.
“I don’t stand anywhere yet because I haven’t seen the results of the commission’s consultations with industry providers of online gaming systems."
