The December 14 Atlantic Provinces Harness Racing Commission (APHRC) decision on simulcast wagering income distribution among Nova Scotia's pari-mutuel tracks has been a catalyst for debate. 

Frank Balcolm chaired the APHRC panel on “setting intra-provincial boundaries for the purpose of limiting telephone account betting in Nova Scotia.” Back on November 14, representatives from Northside Downs, Inverness Raceway, and Truro Raceway presented their cases for allocation of revenue from so-called “telephone account betting,” which actually refers to online wagering (only legal across Canada via Woodbine’s Horseplayer Interactive and Dark Horse platforms); Woodbine was completely phasing out phone betting.
