It doesn’t appear that the money-laundering saga plaguing Canada is going to go away anytime soon. Dating back to 2015, investigations have been conducted that allege a widespread network of illicit activity regarding large financial transactions of questionable provenance at a number of casinos. Most notably, River Rock Casino Resort has been at the heart of the issue on more than one occasion, and new reports are now surfacing that indicate the amount of illegal transactions may have been in the $2-billion range. To make matters worse, the money could have been passed through government financial accounts.
