Ontario is going to look into legalizing online gambling.
"Premier Dalton McGuinty is opening the door to allowing Internet gambling in Ontario.
Paul Godfrey, the new chairman of Ontario Lottery and Gaming, wants the province to get in to Internet gambling instead of watching potential revenues go to other provinces and offshore websites.
Quebec has announced plans to join the British Columbia and Atlantic lottery corporations in allowing online gambling."
With upwards of 17 racetracks, multi-millions in horse race handle and over 40% of the entire country's GDP, this could be a huge blow to horse race handles. As we know, handles are off on live racing by about 40% on harness alone since 2000, without any government promoted online gaming.
