On December 12, 2015 the RCMP were advised by Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) of the interception of a package being imported from overseas which contained a piece of pharmaceutical equipment. The package was destined for a location in West Kelowna addressed to a man known to police.
West Kelowna is Premier Christy Clark's riding.
March 2nd, 2016 the RCMP executed a search warrant at a commercial property in the 2600 block of Auburn Crescent with the assistance of the RCMP’s Federal Clandestine Laboratory Enforcement and Response Team (CLEAR), the West Kelowna Fire Department and the BC Ambulance Service.
No mention by the Press (news media) of the influx of Fentanyl to Kelowna or Vernon or Kamloops.
Last week Premier Christy Clark stood on the Press' Pill soapbox to alert the public to the hotbeds of Fentanyl use at both Masset and Vancouver. Turns out she was wrong.
Two days later, Solicitor Minister, ex-RCMP officer, Mike Morris went to the defense of his Leader, denying that the Premier was at fault because the two police forces had made errors. (No Proof)
Last year there was a Major Fentanyl bust in the West Kelowna riding.
A search warrant was also executed at a rural property in the 700 block of Petterson Road in West Kelowna:
- An estimated 800
fakeOxyContin pills suspected to be laced with Fentanyl;
- Several gold bars, which police suspect may be related to a reported theft.

The Kelowna RCMP SEU have also been successful in shutting down other similar illegal drug operations throughout the Kelowna Region over the past few months:
- File #2015-61383 On November 2, 2015 the Kelowna RCMP SEU intercepted an imported package destined for an address in the 1500 block of Pandosy Street in Kelowna. The package contained 24.5 grams of Fentanyl;
- File #2015-68300 On December 17, 2015 the Kelowna RCMP SEU executed a search warrant at the property located in the 400 block of Neave Court (Just south of UBC)in Kelowna. The search yielded an industrial grade pill press, which investigators say showed signs of use as it was believed to be heavily contaminated with Fentanyl, and a loaded firearm. As a result of this investigation a 22-year-old Kelowna woman and a 28-year-old West Kelowna man each face potential charges under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act of importing a schedule six substance, production for the purpose of trafficking, possession for the purpose of trafficking, as well as possession and unsafe storage of a firearm;
- File #2016-5357 On March 2nd, 2016 the Kelowna RCMP SEU executed a search warrant at a property located in the 11000 block of Cemetary Road in Lake Country, as well as another at a property in the 300 block of Sandpiper Road in Kelowna. These searches yielded various amounts and types of illegal drugs, several firearms, including a loaded .45 calibre hand gun, multiple stolen bicycles and a set of brass knuckles. A 56-year-old Lake Country man faces potential charges of trafficking in a controlled substance as well as a firearms related offence;
The Premier's Fentanyl pill pushing constituents are killing off other constituents (British Columbia) and she does absolutely nothing. No Press releases, no Press, No Government News, No Health Minister, No Solicitor General, and No Pamela Martin to intercede on her behalf.
Nothing until downtown Masset shows on on the (HST) radar screen along with Vancouver, and the towns police forces got it wrong. Blame the Messengers.
