Canada single-event sports betting bill given third reading in Senate
| By Nosa Omoigui
Canada’s single-event sports betting bill was given its third reading in the country’s Senate as it edges closer to a final vote.
Bill C-218, introduced by Senator Kevin Waugh and backed by the country’s government, looks to amend Canada’s Criminal Code with regards to sports betting, repealing a section that currently prohibits wagering on single-sport events. Currently, betting on sports is only legal if the bet is on three or more events at once.
The bill passed the second reading back in February.
