Confirmed: criminals are responsible for crime.
A recently released report by the RCMP says organized crime groups are behind financial fraud schemes in Canada as reported by Kathryn Blaze Carlson for the National Post: "the Montreal mafia has a history of boiler-room schemes and stock market manipulation, while Nigerian organized crime groups in Ontario have been involved in telemarketing and investor fraud."
Meanwhile, a separate study by the federal government "concludes that the Canadian commercial construction sector is at a moderate to high risk of corruption and organized crime" as reported by The Canadian Press: "a barrage of reports about cost overruns in the construction industy, and its ties to crime groups like the Mafia, has prompted a public inquiry that will soon begin in Quebec."
No surprises here. Now that the problems have been identified for the umpteenth time how about doing something about it, eh?
