Canadian newspaper publisher Torstar said it plans to open an online casino to offset the decline in the journalism industry due to the coronavirus pandemic. The publisher owns over 70 regional and local newspapers, including the Toronto Star and the Hamilton Spectator. Through the gaming app, he plans to receive a portion of the 500 million Canadian dollars ($395) that Ontarians spend annually on online gambling. However, desire alone is not enough. The launch of an online casino also depends on the approval of the Ontario Alcohol and Gambling Commission. Earlier, Canadian MP David Cassidy suggested that the government pay attention to the legalization of sports betting.
