The City That Had Too Much Money
The black coupe pulled up outside the Starlight Casino in a suburb of Vancouver. The driver got out, greeted a man in a red shirt, and pulled two bulging white plastic bags from the trunk. He led the way into an empty noodle shop next door, where he handed over the bags before returning to the car. The man in the red shirt took the bags into the casino, through a cavernous glass lobby with signs in English and Mandarin. At a cashier’s desk, he opened one of the bags to present his cargo: thousands of green Canadian $20 bills, bound into loose bricks with yellow plastic bands.

The cashier’s counting machine would need to run continuously for more than 10 minutes to riffle through all the notes, which came to more than C$250,000 ($192,000). Converted into chips that could be cashed out later, whether or not they’d been wagered at the tables, the money would be spendable anywhere in Canada, unimpeded ...

Thanks, YIA, for your perspective!

We in the States don't necessarily understand the details of how business occurs in other nations. This makes sense that criminals would want to move their money "offshore."

I'm sure all the secular universities are thriving of all that money. Reading articles like this makes one lose all faith in any government, as it becomes not about serving the people, but almighty dollar.

I believe there is a zero chance any of that money is legitimate. No business in China can survive without bribes, crime and corruption.

I was just thinking even if China gets a righteous Christian emperor, it would be impossible to change much because the country is too much in debt to the Mafia, it's built on dirty money, and on the backs of peasants who are dying of lung cancer.

It's also changes the point of immigration, instead of bringing hard working, and willing patriots, we are bringing people who believe in almost the complete opposite values, and refuse to change.

Interesting article and links Vancouver to major money laundering from Asia, especially China. It also hints at illegal industries including narcotics. Local politicians are trying to figure out how to address this. The money helps the economy but at a cost.

The problem is that sin is not content but as a highly corrosive element will seek to cross any border or boundary set. So while casinos are racking in huge cash from questionable sources, it just increases the guilt of the casinos. That money then corroded morals as it seems into the economy there.

Another issue is that it reflects an attitude in China that the looming Cultural Revoultion Rewind is going to stomp on profitmaking. Rich Chinese will need a place to either hide their money or prepare a place for them to flee should things get too bad. And because not all of that money is just legitimate, hard working business, that too is tainted. If those people immigrate into Canada, their looser morals will further corrupt a corrupting society.
