Ontario is all in on sports betting. And with billions in wagers and millions in revenue already, the advertising battle for your money is fierce. But is it already undermining the love of the game? The Agenda's host Steve Paikin debates that question on this episoide with Brian Masse, NDP MP for Windsor-West; Chelsea Rodrigues, problem gambling counsellor at Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare; Paul Burns, president and CEO of the Canadian Gaming Association; and Deirdre Querney, registered social worker with the City of Hamilton's Alcohol, Drug & Gambling Services, and co-creator of Brain Connections, a project to share information about gambling and the brain.

The Agenda with Steve Paikin is TVO Today's flagship current affairs program, devoted to exploring the social, political, cultural and economic issues that are changing our world. See more about The Agenda with Steve Paikin here.
