Attorney General Appears to Back B.C. Casino in Drake Race Row
Anyway, Eby has had his say on the Drake incident, and seems to have come down on the side of the casino. He doesn’t mention Drake by name in his statement surrounding the issues, but what he does say is that there are no exceptions to the rules that require gamblers to disclose the source of any cash deposit of more than C$10,000. And Eby does have a point here, no matter that it is Drake involved, the rules still have to apply. This is clearly an attempt by the province to quell the issue of money laundering, but it might also have meant Drake was reluctant to spend.
Eby continued his statement by talking about the impact the current restrictions were having, stating, “…the change has resulted in a remarkable and sharp decline in suspicious transactions, adding there’s been a reduction of about 100 times from the peak of suspicious cash transactions.” This shows a positive action that has come from the changes, and probably justifies the casino’s stance as well.
