(BC-Money-Laundering-Review)

A former deputy commissioner of the R-C-M-P and Correctional Service Canada will lead a review aimed at dealing with the issue of money laundering in the gambling industry in B-C.

Peter German has been appointed by the province to conduct the review, which will focus on gaming in the Lower Mainland to ensure casinos are following policies already in effect.

Attorney General David Eby says the review has the full support of casinos, the B-C Lottery Corp. and the government's gaming policy and enforcement branch.

German's report is due by March. (The Canadian Press)

Plans are in the works to implement a new wild salmon policy and consultations with First Nations and others are expected to take place this fall. (The Canadian Press)
