VANCOUVER – The authors of a report that found $ 47 billion were washed in Canada last year debated whether to include a chart that indicated that Alberta, Ontario and the prairies were access points for dirty money, says the lead author.

Maureen Maloney said that her panel of experts used the best mathematical model available to reach the estimates, but it is more reliable nationally than provincially, so they questioned whether to publish the figures.

“But we thought, ‘No, we have to do this, because people need to know that it’s not just a BC problem,'” said Maloney, the province’s former assistant attorney general and professor of public policy at Simon Fraser University. .
