Mr. Chairman, I
am not very familiar with these objectionable games myself, but I think the essential element in all of them is that by sleight of hand on the part of the operator the innocent victim is pretty badly stung. Religious and charitable organizations are permitted however to raise money by means of wheels of fortune, this being a favourite method of retailing merchandise, the profit realized being about 33^ per cent, or about the same as that realized by any retail concern. This used to be the regular method adopted by our ex-
hibitions for raising money, but they were deprived of it by the amendment which went through the House three sessions ago without comment. Evidently the House did not know what was involved in the change, and I am quite sure the Minister of Justice did not.
