Other Provinces Consider Rolling the Dice

Alberta and Saskatchewan are considering online gaming after BC and Ontario recently started their online gambling sites.  BC had to immediately shut down theirs do to technical problems.

Online gambling would surely be a cash cow for cash strapped provinces but what about people who have gambling problems?  Gambling addiction has ruined careers, families, and lives.  Are our provincial governments so money hungry they are willing for gamblers risk all that is really important in life?   Then you and I have to pay to look after those addicts.

Yeah, yeah it will be controlled yada, yada, yada  but it just  doesn't sit well with  me. How about you?
