The Vancouver Canucks are set to enjoy a few million bucks of taxpayer money so they are better able to contend for the Stanley Cup. In a deal with the BC Lottery Corporation, the Canucks will receive 15 percent of all betting on Sports Action lottery games and a portion of the take from new Canucks scratch and win tickets. The Stanley Cup in Vancouver sounds good - it’s the subsidies that sound bad.
