Regulators to Probe B.C. Casino Staff Money Laundering Connection

Every week it seems as though there are fresh revelations surrounding money laundering in the British Columbia area. This is something that has plagued the province over the past couple of years, and the more we find out about it, the worse things seem to get. For the past few years it appears that criminal gangs have been using casinos across British Columbia for illegal activities, namely money laundering.

This is something that has led to a great deal of issues for casinos in and around the B.C. area. Bad press has damaged some of the success of the casinos in the area, while there have been deeper set issues that have raised questions over the future of the industry. In fact, money laundering became so bad that the Prime Minister even got involved, setting up a task force to deal with the problem.

Well, it seems that the investigation has turned up more questions than answers at the moment, and there have been a lot of unexpected revelations. It seems that former MPs have been implicated in money laundering, and there have been rumblings of the connections between Asian gangs and politicians within Canada. In fact, there have been claims that many casino bosses were aware of the extent of money laundering taking place in many of their B.C. casinos.

Whether or not this is true remains to be seen, but it is certainly the case that the sheer extent of the problem is so severe it seems inconceivable that nobody would be aware. There is a new regulator probe looking into the idea that even some casino staff in B.C. might have been aware of money laundering. If there is any evidence of this that is found, it could point to a deeper and more sinister conspiracy.

B.C. Attorney General David Eby described the situation as being like a ‘Rat’s nest of rot,’ as new figures unveiled the extent of the money laundering problem in the country. Commenting on the sheer depth of the issues, Eby said, “I started pulling on the thread of this casino laundering that was taking place and it has led to a real rat’s nest of rot, really, in the system.” In fact, it is thought that the new figures have come as a huge shock, and that they dwarf what was originally expected. It is though that Eby fears the extent of money laundering in the province could be in the billions of dollars!

Let us hope that Eby and his team are able to get to the root of the problem, and put measures in place that will cut money laundering out of the province for good. While it does seem as though the problem is much more complex than this, it is also the case that any positive action is better than none. Now that Eby is aware of the problem, he can take more effective steps to find the root causes, and do as much as possible to eradicate this issue from B.C. once and for all.
