The Supreme Court dismissed an appeal in 2013, finding that the police do not have legal authority to issue such orders. The authorities responded by proposing a bill that will authorize such orders, referring to child pornography, drug trafficking and on-line gambling web sites. In 2004, the British Columbia Lottery Corporation launched Canada's first legal on-line casino, 솔카지노, which makes legal on-line gambling out there to residents of British Columbia and Manitoba. A survey carried out in 2007 confirmed that only about 2.3% of Canadians reported taking part in on-line gambling.
