On March 27, in two world capitals, two British Columbians appeared before parliamentary committees and revealed Victoria’s secrets.
In Ottawa, NDP Attorney General David Eby appealed for federal government help to crack down on money laundering in B.C. casinos and the province’s real estate market. Eby’s predecessors in the BC Liberals turned a blind eye as the lucre rolled in from China.
In London, data scientist Christopher Wylie explained the role that AggregateIQ played in elections on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. The company, formed by BC Liberal Zack Massingham and federal Liberal Jeff Silvester, worked with the BC Greens in 2016 and Todd Stone’s failed BC Liberal leadership campaign in 2018. Wylie described AggregateIQ as a “franchise” of Cambridge Analytica and questioned its ethics. AIQ is under investigation in both the U.K. and B.C.
