Article claims Canadian players have no protection when playing online

Does this worry anyone? The Canadian Criminal Code explicitly makes the offering of gambling services by unlicenced private individuals (including companies) a crime. Despite this, the numerous gambling sites that are available to Canadians draw large amounts of traffic from this country. This creates a complex legal situation in which users of these gambling sites are left without any legal recourse if they have a dispute with one of these sites.

Stars was probably the worst example the could have used in that article. I think most people have learned not to keep more money online than they can go without in case something happens.

As a poker community we keep each other informed of what sites to play on or stay away from.

what poker site isnt licensed? The article never addresses wether that subsection of the canadian criminal code says wether the presiding license has to be in canada(either poor research into a non story or poor writing for a mild story), and its from a business magazine, Im gonna take a stab in the dark and say she probably doesnt have much of a clue about what she speaks, just wrote down whatever she could easily find off google.
