The ministry of housing and social development will no longer be asking British Columbians how satisfied they are with the regulation of the province's gaming industry. The government announced it would annually tracking that satisfaction rate in 2006 as part of an attempt to ensure the industry operates with "integrity and accountability." That number has consistently reflected poorly on government. For example, in fiscal 2008/09, just 30 percent said they were satisfied. But the ministry has said it dumped that performance measure in its most recent service plan because it didn't say anything about why British Columbians were dissatisfied.
