   Vancouver Sun: Amid growing fears that the Vancouver region has become a hotbed for money laundering, Mounties in B.C. have tapped a former Crown prosecutor to help them step up their investigation of financial crimes.
   The selection of John Ahern as a “financial crime special adviser” based at the RCMP’s Surrey, B.C., headquarters comes at a time of heightened concern that illicit money is being funnelled through Lower Mainland casinos, and possibly other sectors, on a large scale.
   Within the international intelligence community, B.C. has become “infamous” for money laundering, David Eby, B.C.’s attorney general, told the House of Commons finance committee in Ottawa in late March. Eby said he was stunned when he was shown video of people wheeling suitcases packed with $20 bills to casino cages.
