B.C. Lottery Corp. finally reveals secret behind $700K fine for money laundering fumbles Eric Rankin, CBC News · July 4, 2020 at 5:34 pm The B.C. Lottery Corporation has finally given up a decade-long fight to keep a secret. In 2010, BCLC was hit with a $700,000 fine by FINTRAC, the country’s money laundering watchdog, for undisclosed violations of the Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act. It was the largest penalty ever levelled against a provincial gaming corporation — until FINTRAC eventually withdrew its case after a long and complicated legal battle. But BCLC still fought to keep the facts of the case from the public. Now the lottery corporation has voluntarily released documents that detail its past failings, relenting after a nine year freedom of information battle with CBC News.
