RCMP leaders respond to B.C. money laundering report

-

Attorney General David Eby’s announcement Monday that no federally funded RCMP officers were fighting money laundering in B.C. has generated some pointed and introspective responses from RCMP leaders in B.C. and Ottawa.

The Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of British Columbia has also weighed in on the role of the agency tasked with combatting organized crime in the province.

Deputy RCMP Commissioner Gilles Michaud, who is responsible for federal policing, didn’t question the findings in the chapter but noted the RCMP is actively fighting money laundering across Canada.

“We would point out that with the assistance of domestic and U.S. partners in Project Collecteur, the RCMP in Quebec recently charged 17 individuals who allegedly were involved in laundering vast sums of money through an elaborate international network that ultimately returned funds to criminals in Colombia and Mexico,” Michaud said in an emailed statement to the Courier from the RCMP’s headquarters in Ottawa.
