Canadian planner takes on problem gambling
Ontario-based financial planner Ruby Lougheed Yawney is spearheading a campaign against problem gambling in Canada, initiating a petition aimed at regulation of casinos.
The campaign has been successful in convincing Toronto city councillors to scrap plans for a casino in the town of Sudbury and is now aiming to regulate “slots” at local venues.
Yawney told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation that her career as a financial planner and engagement with clients has alerted her to the plight of problem gamblers.
"I've seen the detrimental effects that gambling has on people's finances, on their families, on society as whole,” she said. “I'm just really opposed to it."
