BC Hydro workers investigated for possible drug trade involvement

BC Hydro isn’t saying much about an investigation into whether some of its workers may have become involved in the drug trade.

It’s been reported that 18 employees, mostly hydro line technicians, are accused of repairing hydro meters on buildings that may have housed grow-ops.

A written statement from the Crown Corporation acknowledges the investigation, but company officials call it an “internal personnel matter,” and refuse further comment.
