Legislation permitting B.C. Hydro to furnish information on residential customers using suspiciously high amounts of electricity is likely to be introduced next spring to aid municipalities seeking to stamp out marijuana-growing operations.

Each year, police in the province receive more than 5,000 tips about indoor growing operations, but manpower limitations allow them to only check about 2,000.

Municipalities’ convention in Vancouver Tuesday that the ministry wants to help municipalities combat the proliferation of growing operations through bylaw enforcement based on techniques used this year by Surrey and Abbotsford.
