In a series of October 2017 emails exchanged between Patrick Brown, Rick Dykstra, and former party communications director Rebecca Thompson, Thompson suggested the PCs should question whether there were changes in the OLG bid process for the Toronto contracts, and whether there was political involvement.
But now, an investigation by Global News shows that a Toronto hedge fund that is connected to PC candidate Caroline Mulroney — and held a massive stake in the B.C. casino company — repeatedly lobbied the PCs in late 2017 to stop criticizing Great Canadian.
In an interview, Ajax Mayor Steve Parish — who claims that his municipality lost its successful casino to a new Great Canadian location in a process that smelled of backroom deals” — said he hopes complaints to market regulators will re-open and invalidate” the Toronto-area casino deals.

In a brief interview, Di Nino maintained that the very disturbing” information he conveyed to Soliman, was simply that he couldn't believe OLG would award Great Canadian significant contracts while a review of money laundering allegations continued in B.C.
The emails, and extensive interviews with a number of party insiders, show that BloombergSen — the Toronto hedge fund that was seen as pro-Great Canadian” according to PC emails — repeatedly contacted the Tories seeking to stop questioning of Great Canadian.
Party emails show the PCs, under former leader Patrick Brown, originally decided to attack the Toronto casino deals after B.C. Attorney General David Eby in September 2017 launched an independent review into allegations of transnational money laundering in Metro Vancouver casinos.
Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario spokesman Ray Kahnert said the review was triggered by allegations in B.C., and Ontario's review focuses on management's integrity and reporting obligations in Ontario, and the company's capacity to minimize unlawful activity including money laundering.
The story reported that despite ongoing probes in B.C. and Ontario, Great Canadian had just been awarded yet another bundle of southern Ontario contracts, this for several casinos west of Toronto. In the fall of 2017, Ontario's Progressive Conservative party urged the provincial government to freeze the deals, after it was revealed Great Canadian Gaming was at the centre of casino money-laundering probes.
