Canada: British Columbia’s Casino Money Laundering Problem Exploded in the Late 1990s: Whistleblower

32

British Columbia has been rocked by financial scandal following revelations that its casinos had become “laundromats for organized crime” over the past decade, with Chinese criminal gangs transforming the province into a global money-laundering hub with links to the fentanyl epidemic.

But the scandal may go back further than a decade, to the late 1990s, according to a former whistleblowing casino supervisor, who recently contacted Canada’s Global News. In fact, Muriel Labine remembers the exact moment money-laundering “exploded” in British Columbia and the triad gangs like “the Big Circle Boys” and “the Yellow Triangle Boys” moved in.
