Loto-Quebec has been strangely silent in view of the insider winner scandal that brewed in Ontario last year. Perhaps they consider the problem unique to Ontario, but more likely are afraid of opening a Pandora's box. Their silence in regard to the problem is scandalous.
It seems that Ontario's Ombudsman Andre Marin, blew the whistle on insider fraud and theft in 2007, at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming. Loto retailers were cashing winning tickets at an extraordinary rate and fraud was the culprit. It appears that at least 198 million dollars was shifted away from legitimate winners by a variety of means.
