The day after a webcast hosted by Senator Marty Deacon to discuss her push for a national framework around sports betting advertising, a long-time lobbyist and regulatory advisor for the gambling industry said passing Bill S-269 is of the longshot variety.

Troy Ross, the president of TRM Public Affairs, appeared on the Gaming News Canada Show presented by Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP to explain the challenges of putting restrictions on place on advertising. Joining the conversation were Amanda Brewer of the Canadian Gaming Association, GeoComply senior executive Lindsay Slader, Parleh Media Group CEO Mark Silver, and Phill Gray, the former head of trading operations for Sports Interaction.

Slader appeared on the show to talk about the opening of GeoComply’s new offices in Toronto, the company’s role in Ontario’s regulated online sports betting and gaming industry, and its advocating regulation in other parts of Canada.
