VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Attorney General David Eby is asking Opposition Leader and former AG Andrew Wilkinson to waive cabinet privilege on all documents exposing criminal activity in BC casinos and “throughout BC’s economy.”
An explosive report released in June describes Lower Mainland casinos as laundromats for dirty money.

In a letter dated August 10, 2018, Eby says he doesn’t want to “duplicate” unsuccessful measures taken by former Solicitor General Rich Coleman who claims his government did “everything we could” to crack down on money laundering.
He’s promising to keep the documents confidential, but suggests this would be the “most effective use of limited public resources.”
If Wilkinson says yes, the next step is to send an official request to Mike de Jong — the designated representative of the previous government.Letter_Eby_Wilkinson.2018.08.10
