Canadian Province’s e-Gaming Venture Under Review

Canadian Province’s e-Gaming Venture Under Review Canada’s elected provincial government of Port Edward Island is focusing its attention on the previous government's abortive e-gaming venture, which resulted in a million tax dollars.

The new premier, Wade MacLauchlan, has assigned the provincial Auditor General to review the situation including those people and companies involved in the deal.

The review will result in suggested reforms and guidelines for officials.

Political criticism of the former government prompted the review. Former commissioner, Neil Robinson’s conduct was questioned and the Opposition Progressive Conservatives Party’s campaign for his removal resulted in his resignation.

Robinson maintains that he is free from wrongdoing and his resignation was due to his loss of confidence in the Legislature. John McQuaid, a retired justice of the Prince Edward Island Court of Appeal has stepped in to take his place.
  • It's called PRINCE Edward Island, also known as PEI. It's very small and very beautiful, with at least one big city. It is the home of Anne of Green Gables, very renowned in Canadian culture and lore, and boasts sea fishing and farming. It is especially loved for its potatoes. Some of the best growers in the world. It is also a lobster capital, with lobster foibles and adventures enough that I am surprised there isn't a lobster-fishing TV show, like Coronation Street, but with lobsters. We LOVE and ADORE our Prince Edward Island here in Canada. And long may it game! Cheers.
  • I read several articles related to this situation and it is still unclear to me what is going on in this situation. I do know that there is $1 million in taxpayer monies missing which is part of the problem. Other than that I am clueless. I am confident that LCB will have updates on this situation as soon as they are available. Maybe then we will understand more about this strange situation.
  • I don't think I totally understand the content of this article but it sure sounds like a messy political situation with respect to on-line gaming in Canada right now - I know they were forbidden from using Skrill and Neteller not that long ago, but I did think they had largely escaped the United States crusade against on-line gaming.. can anybody verify the Canadian situation here??...
