We’re a nation of gamblers, by government design. Internet gambling the latest vice to part Ontarians with billions in bets

Ontarians are spending $145 million on legal marijuana by the end of 2021. The province has earned about $4 billion in tax revenue since legalization. About a quarter of Ontario adults participate in gambling on a weekly basis. The average gambling expenditure for gamblers is $91.51 a month. Every three months in Thunder Bay, local media carry a story about the casino’s quarterly dividend paid to the host city. It's about 10 per cent of the take. This money leaves the community. There is less money for personal and household expenditures and spending at businesses and donations to charity.
