There are many laws on the books in Canada and other countries that were created years ago for valid reasons. Today, though, society seems to have outgrown some of these laws, and many are pushing to change them. One of those laws makes it illegal to wager on the outcome of a single sports game. In Canada, it is only legal to place a parlay bet on sporting events, where you must correctly pick the outcome of at least two games. This law has been around since the 1960s, when it was enacted in part in response to a concern about fixing matches. But as that concern has begun to wane, as other countries such as the United States have embraced single-sports gambling, and as plenty of people wager on sports events illegally anyway, the Canadian government is considering changing the law.
