That’s the headline of an article in today’s Globe and Mail (May 26, 2020, page A6), detailing how “criminal organizations linked to China, Colombia, Mexico and elsewhere had been using Vancouver-area casinos as ‘laundromats’ for illicit money, exploiting gaps left wide open as different agencies responsible for gambling and regulation waged ‘internecine’ turf wars.”

To put it more plainly: Organized crime carried on illegal activities involving billions of dollars during the years that the BC Liberals were government; and the BC Liberals did nothing about it. It’s taken an NDP government to take steps to restore the rule of law.
