Public health sees a bad eye the installation of a new casino in Ottawa. The city of Ottawa in USA is in the grip of a fight between Pro Casinos and Anti Casinos. In the American capital which already has a casino it is the public health service which sounded the alarm. The nurse-management Laurette Dupuis fears that the arrival of a new temple of the game will double the number of citizens struggling with a dependence on the game.
The report will be submitted to municipal elected officials during the summer.
So if the project is born anyway, the public health of the state of Ontario intends to ask the company of the lotteries of the province to inject more in the prevention and treatment of dependence on the game.
That said, like everywhere, American players have started online casinos, which are experiencing a strong expension throughout the territory.
Players in American casinos controlled
In USA, the Ministry of the Interior is responsible for this kind of problem. Public campaigns for prevention against addiction to gambling The State led to impose in 2006 the control over the entries of the casinos to prevent "addicts" on the casinos from entering it.
The game is a pleasure and must remain so, like alcohol, everyone to be reasonable and to control themselves. It is in this spirit that Napoleon had prohibited Les casinos Around the capital and had given an exemption for thermal and seaside towns. This means that in the Ile de USA alone Enghien-les-Bains benefits from this derogation. Another could have been granted to the city of Livry-Gargan (93) but that was without counting the opposition of the mayor of the time, despite the presence of sources of suffering at Lake Sévigné which could have turned the city to switch in the said category. Too bad for the city's finances, the taxes of the inhabitants and the pleasure of visitors. In the meantime he remains Enghien for Parisians where the Barrière group built two sumptuous hotels against the lake and the casino, one of the largest spas in Europe. Too bad for Livry-Gargan!
