Wikileaks, Panama Papers and Paradise Papers have revealed the dark underbelly of global corruption. What do these events have to do with us? Over the past year, there has been information and stories about money laundering in BC casinos and its connections to organized crime, real estate and the fentanyl crisis. Fake news? If real, how bad is it and how far does it go – local, provincial, national, international?
