Ticket Scalpers

/ 97.3 The Eagle
               The province has kicked off a public consultation campaign to help it deal with the problem of high-priced tickets due to scalping and ticket bots. Solicitor General Mike Farnworth says the planned legislation will deal with the inability of average British Columbians to get tickets to events and the unfair way in which scalpers and so-called “bots” get the tickets. Ticket bots are rapid ticket-buying software that can scoop up available tickets for resellers who then offer them back to the public at a hefty price. The three-week survey will ask people about their experiences with ticket buying and reselling, with new legislation expected to be introduced in the fall.
