Public feedback wanted on online ticket sales, ‘scalper bots’:ON

The Ontario government is seeking the public’s help developing legislation to make the process of buying and selling event tickets easier and more transparent, including looking at how to curb the practice of “scalper bots.”

Ontarians are encouraged to complete a 10-minute online survey that focuses on four keys areas: access to tickets, affordability, transparency and enforcement.

Attorney General Yasir Naqvi announced on Tuesday that the government is planning new legislation to regulate the buying and selling of tickets online.
