Marijuana banking backlash snares Vancouver couple

first_imgTy and Tracy Camp have been together for 11 years, and married for seven, but they rarely mix their finances.Until May, she worked as an assistant vice president and financial center manager at Bank of America in Vancouver, and also owns and manages several residential properties around Clark County. He owns a construction company and Sunshine Farms, a marijuana grower and processor in Sifton. They share only one bank account, which they use to cover mutual costs — a rental property they co-owned, and some standard household expenses.Which is why Tracy Camp was floored to return home from a vacation with her husband to find that she’d been fired from her position with the bank, and told by an internal company investigator she’d been flagged on suspicion of money laundering.Her husband, who works in the marijuana industry, had moved funds from his construction business’ account into their joint account, and she’d moved some of the money from the joint account into her personal account.“We’ve been running our businesses and our books and our lives like that for the last 10 years,” she told a corporate HR representative in an interview recorded by the company.The official reason for her termination was a code of conduct violation. She described being told that as a bank employee, she should have known that mixing funds with a person growing marijuana — her husband, no less — put the bank at risk of noncompliance with federal law.last_img read more

Association of Australian Convention Bureaux commends Perth backing

first_imgAssociation of Australian Convention Bureaux commends Perth backingThe Association of Australian Convention Bureaux (AACB), commends Opposition Leader, Mark McGowen, on his pledge to invest $5 million per annum in the Perth Convention Bureau (PCB) if WA Labor wins office at next year’s state election.AACB CEO, Andrew Hiebl said, “With tourism being identified by Deloitte as one of Australia’s five super-growth industries, now is not the time to cut investment in convention bureaux, especially with the mining boom transitioning to production.”In 2014, Deloitte further described the business events sector as “a high-value, fast-growing component of the visitor economy”. One in five dollars spent by international visitors in Australia is spent by an international delegate attending some form of business event. In addition, international delegates spend, on average, 21% more than other international visitors over the course of their trip – and 77% more per day.Hiebl added, “State and territory investment in convention bureaux around the country is a critical component of the public-private-partnership structures that they work under. Governments that are truly committed to the doubling of overnight expenditure in line with Australia’s Tourism 2020 targets will have a solid and secure investment strategy for the business events sector.”“The extreme funding decrease of 28% announced by WA Treasurer Nahan last year would diminish the PCB’s capacity to bid for and win new international and national conventions for the state which would see Western Australia miss out on the opportunity to leverage this industry”.Around the world, business events are being used as strategic tools for attracting trade, investment and global talent. Governments invest in the business events sector because they recognise not just the high yield, but also the long-term benefits accruing from growth in the visitor and knowledge-based economies.AACB calls on the State Liberal Government to reverse its PCB funding cut decision and back a sector that can drive jobs and economic prosperity for Western Australia.Source = Perth Convention Bureaulast_img read more
