CREA Partners with the RCMP for their Marihuana Grow Initiative (MGI)
Earlier today, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) launched their national strategy to combat marihuana grow operations (MGOs) in communities across Canada, known as the Marihuana Grow Initiative (MGI) (http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/news-nouvelles/2011/09-21-mgi-ircm-eng.htm). Director-at-Large Pauline Aunger was on hand at the launch, held at RCMP National Headquarters here in Ottawa, to represent The Canadian Real Estate Association, one of the official community partners of this initiative, and REALTORS® nationwide.
CREA’s role in this initiative is to help raise awareness of the health and safety concerns associated with the presence of MGOs and to provide expertise on their impact on the real estate industry.
Please find attached the RCMP’s news release announcing the MGI launch, which features a quote from CREA President Gary Morse.
