Law enforcement officials are seeing a rise in money laundering cases in Canada, and some say the country isn’t doing enough to clamp down on the criminal activity.

In fact, when British Columbia’s Attorney General David Eby was briefed by law enforcement officials last year on alleged money laundering in his province, the scale of activity “blew my mind,” Eby said, according to The Wall Street Journal. Eby added that he was embarrassed to learn that Australian authorities had even dubbed a common tactic carried out by Chinese gangs, where illicit money is processed through casinos, as “the Vancouver method.”
