Zane Hansen, the president and CEO of the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA), explained the reasons for the authority's record-setting fiscal year in 2022-23 in coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic and launching its online gaming product (PlayNow.com) in collaboration with the British Columbia Lottery Corportation. Hansen also weighed in on Bill S-268, brought forward in the Senate last month by Senator Scott Tannas to amend the Criminal Code of Canada "to provide that the governing body of a First Nation has exclusive authority to conduct and manage a lottery scheme on its reserve and to license the conduct and management of a lottery scheme by other persons and entities on its reserve", and on possible expansion of regulated sports betting and igaming in Canada beyond Ontario in the future.
