Canada: Alberta First Nations say provincially regulated gambling website unauthorized Bill Graveland, The Canadian Press · April 7, 2021 at 10:45 pm Two First Nations are taking the Alberta government and its gaming commission to court over the province’s entry into the online gambling sector. Play Alberta, a provincially regulated site launched last fall, offers virtual slots and table games while casinos remain shut down due to COVID-19. The province has said it expects the site to raise more than $3.7 million in 2021. The Tsuut’ina and Stoney Nakoda First Nations in southern Alberta want the courts to shut down the site and have filed an application for a judicial review. They argue Alberta’s move is an “unauthorized and impermissible” entry into the casino and gaming market.
