B.C.’s attorney general says as much as $1 billion of drug money laundered each year through real estate, and that dirty money has played a role in inflating the price of homes in province. Police say a lot of that drug money is coming from fentanyl linked to China. A group of municipal politicians are also calling for a public inquiry into the role of drug money on B.C.’s housing market.
