Earlier, we reported the provincial government would be soon be searching for a new gaming policy and enforcement branch head. This, after the branch's founding director Derek Sturko departed to become the children and family development ministry's chief operating officer. That search is now underway - with the government rolling out a posting for that job late last month. But here's the interesting part: Mr. Sturko's replacement will, according to that posting, be responsible for "seeking changes to the legal and governance structure for gaming (e.g. by proposing amendments to the Criminal Code of Canada and/or addressing issues raised by committees of the Federal government)," as well as a "more coordinated policy approaches among the provinces (e.g. a common approach to gaming activities provided over the Internet)." The following is a complete copy.
