Launching #LotteryLeaks

You could call it the motherlode.

It's not often that I receive more than 500 pages of documents via Freedom of Information. But here 'tis.

A compilation of several records from the files of the Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch, the British Columbia government's regulator of gambling.


Page 3: Investigations of the Lake Country Winfield and District Minor Hockey Association and Comox Valley Raiders Youth Football for unlicensed raffle ticket draws.

Page 28: Allegations of illegal lottery ticket resales by Telco Management (aka CW Agencies) in Vancouver.

Page 138: Prize payment violation by a Fort St. John retailer.

Page 153: Surveillance of a Surrey retailer.

Page 177: Marijuana dealing to teenagers at the Cascades Casino in Langley.

Page 184: Sting operations in Prince George to catch sellers of lottery tickets to minors.

Page 446: Sting operations in Quesnel to catch sellers of lottery tickets to minors.

Page 485: Allegations of selling lottery tickets to minors in Nanaimo.

Page 503: Selling a used Scratch & Win ticket in Pemberton.

As always, I'm sharpening my FOI pencil. I also welcome credible, verifiable information from good sources via email or in unaddressed, brown envelopes to me, c/o Business in Vancouver (102 E. 4th Ave., Vancouver, B.C. V5T 1G2) and The Tyee (P.O. Box 88484, Vancouver, B.C. V6A 4A7).
