An estimated $1 billion per year has been laundered through our province, and this dirty money has ties to opioids and inflated housing prices. People are demanding answers - add your voice today at publicinquirynow.ca
The VDLC adopted the following recommendation at our February 19th regular meeting:
Subject: Public Inquiry into Organized Crime, Fentanyl, and Money Laundering in BC
BECAUSE the RCMP documents leaked last year exposed links between organized crimes, fentanyl, and money laundering connected to skyrocketing real estate prices in BC; and
BECAUSE a task force of G7 countries which tracks money laundering, terrorist financing, and threats to the international financial system, has highlighted BC money laundering in their recent report, and estimated that over $1 billion per year has been laundered through underground banking; and
BECAUSE this situation must be corrected, and cannot be allowed to continue to put working people, their families, and their communities in jeopardy,
THE VANCOUVER AND DISTRICT LABOUR COUNCIL WILL join the BC Government and Service Employees’ Union and others in their call for a public inquiry into organized crime, fentanyl, and money laundering in BC; and
THE VANCOUVER AND DISTRICT LABOUR COUNCIL WILL write to Attorney General David Eby and Premier John Horgan in support of the same.
