I think this is an important story and would benefit from other NowPublic contributors working on it. I've flagged it as News Wanted and invite others in relevant locations to look for more evidence.

I live in that block; they said they found a meth lab in a building near the corner with Yew, and were cleaning it up. The Hazmat teams and fire people were there all night working under floodlights powered by a generator. The area was still cordoned off at 7:30am on Friday. Hazmat people in protective suits were moving stuff carefully into plastic containers.

Rob Peters, Good stuff.As I had reported on many occasions in my stories on Now Public, the bigger and pricier the house and
the bigger mortgage payment sometimes we find what we wish we didn't.
I got a call to investigate a Meth Lab in Whistler last summer, what an eye opener among the
rich tony set near the Jack Nicholas golf club. The residents were stunned, but some people who want a
champagne lifestyle, yet can only afford a beer budget I find most resort to running drug labs as a way to maintain their high lifestyle, most knowing the
small penalties and getting caught are rare and the fines small in comparison
when it comes to profits they make. Until our British Columbia laws reflect serious
times for the crimes the status quo will remain the same and worse targeted hits and murder result when some cross over someone else's territory.
