Royally Flushed: Reforming Gambling to Work for, Not Against, Atlantic Canada
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractIn Royally Flushed: Reforming Gambling to Work for, Not Against, Atlantic Canada, think tank Cardus shows how the lowest-income households in the Atlantic provinces pay their provincial governments an estimated 4% of their annual incomes through gambling – twice the proportion that the wealthiest Atlantic Canadians hand over to governments though games of chance. Atlantic provinces’ income tax systems, by contrast, tax the wealthiest families at nearly 10 times the rate of the region’s poorest.
