The Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) is reported to have started a survey among the citizens of the province of Alberta (Canada) on their attitude towards online gambling. Poker, blackjack and bingo are the focal points of the survey. Being initially through the phone, the survey has already spread online. The matter is that it is still unclear when or if the local government allows Internet gambling sites from outside the province to run their business in Alberta.
The survey has sparked a great opposition from the side of Calgary’s Catholic Church and some advocates who say that Alberta’s government is about to let the immorality settle in the society, and their main focus is financial profit.
Alberta’s First Nation is being investigated on the same issue by AGLC. It is known that it is offering hosting online gambling websites from all over the world on their territory. AGCL considers it to be illegal. Still, there is no evidence that gambling websites have started operating their business. The commission will keep a close eye upon what is going on, and as the officials say, they’ll close any operating in the Alberta website from outside of the province.
