Canadian investigative journalist Sam Cooper’s new book, “Wilful Blindness: How a Network of Narcos, Tycoons and CCP Agents Infiltrated the West,” reveals that powerful Chinese communists have threatened Canadian sovereignty and security through casino money laundering and capital infiltration in Canada. (Wilful Blindness: How a Network of Narcos, Tycoons and CCP Agents Infiltrated the West) reveals that Chinese Communist powerbrokers have threatened Canada’s sovereignty and security through casino money laundering and capital infiltration in Canada.
Canadian investigative journalist Sam Cooper: “What this book reveals is that the people that I found going into the casinos every night with bags of $20 denominations, up to $1.2 million in cash, with the casino predators, these are the same people that interact with the top brass at the Chinese Consulate in Vancouver, and the same people that interact with Canadian politicians, and there are photos to prove it, which shows that this is a unification operation, and I have continued to follow it and not given up.”
Cooper found that not only was the CCP’s red money laundered through casinos, the laundered funds were also used to speculate on Vancouver’s housing prices and for drug smuggling, influencing Canadian politicians while local law enforcement officials were helpless under pressure from political figures.
Cooper’s 10-year investigation found that this was an infiltration campaign into Canada by powerful Communist Party members that had been underway for 30 years.
“What I want to tell readers is that this is not just about drug proliferation, the housing crisis, this is really about democracy, these casino money laundering, trade money laundering, the Belt and Road project, all intertwined and linked to a system where foreign governments, politicians, business leaders, academics, officials are all targeted by these casino money laundering players. “
At the book launch, Charles Burton, a former Canadian diplomat in China who wrote the foreword to Cooper’s new book, said the Chinese Communist government’s lobbyists have penetrated all areas of Canada.
“There are powerful pro-communist lobbyists in Ottawa, Vancouver and other major Canadian cities, mostly retired politicians serving on various China-related committees, including businesses and law firms that benefit from the Communist Party.”
These individuals receive direct or indirect benefits from the CCP, thereby pressuring the Canadian government not to introduce policies such as the ‘Transparency in Foreign Influence Act’ that could affect the CCP’s interests.
