BC Lotteries CEO Michael Graydon failed to immediately inform the 
government about the July 15 security breach at its online casino, 
PlayNow, according to internal BCLC documents obtained by The Vancouver 
Sun.

The lottery corporation has been criticized for initially telling the 
public the PlayNow site went down due to high traffic, taking five days
