The Province - - NEWS - PA­TRICK JOHN­STON pjohn­ston@post­media.com

Some­one in West Van­cou­ver was paid a Panama Pa­pers-re­lated visit by of­fi­cials from the Canada Rev­enue Agency on Wed­nes­day.

We just don’t know who.

In a me­dia re­lease, the CRA an­nounced that with the help of the West Van­cou­ver Po­lice De­part­ment and the RCMP, it had ex­e­cuted a search war­rant Wed­nes­day as part of “an off­shore tax eva­sion crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­lated to the data leak from the Pana­ma­nian law firm and cor­po­rate ser­vice provider Mos­sack Fon­seca, made pub­lic in the Panama Pa­pers.”

The CRA said “it can­not pro­vide fur­ther de­tails con­cern­ing this on­go­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion.”
