Canada a friendly home for illicit cash, corrupt real estate buys, report says

OTTAWA — Canada is doing a lousy job of cracking down on corrupt foreigners laundering their vast ill-gotten wealth by buying high-end assets such as luxury goods, diamonds, and mansions, according to a report released Thursday.
