Casino CEO and wife pose as motel workers, travel to remote Canadian territory for COVID-19 vaccine

A 55-year-old Canadian casino CEO resigned after he and his 32-year-old wife were nabbed for misleading authorities by traveling to a remote territory in Canada and posing as motel workers in order to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

Rod Baker, head of the Great Canadian Gaming Corp, a $2 billion company, and his wife, Ekaterina, flew from Vancouver to the Yukon Territory, on the border of Alaska, for the vaccine.

Yukon Territory, home to mostly Indigenous peoples, has a smaller population and a higher rate of vaccination than the rest of Canada.

The couple were discovered for their alleged fraud after receiving the injections and then asking to immediately be flown home, according to reports by the BBC.  

“I am outraged by this selfish behavior,” Yukon’s Community Services Minister John Streicker said, the BBC reported.

“We had not been imagining that someone would go to this sort of length to mislead or deceive,” he added.
