Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Lee Berthiaume at the Ottawa Citizen,
The National Hockey League has become the latest professional sports league to voice last-minute opposition to a bill that would legalize betting on individual games.
That has prompted parliamentarians spearheading the proposed legislation to question the sports leagues’ motives, setting up a fight that could have dramatic ramifications for the country’s gambling scene.
The Criminal Code only allows legal betting on three or more sports games at a time.
Bill C-290 would change that so provinces could set up rules and regulations for single-game betting.
