Why Did Alberta Health Remove Archived Grow Ops?

Calgary Grow OpAn absolutely mind boggling question considering what the City of Calgary and the Province have cooking with regard to grow ops in Alberta!

I just had a call from a client tonight wondering about a home that they saw at an open house.

When I told them that it was a former remediated grow op, he said,"...but I went through the open house and the listing agent never said anything..."

You know why?

Because they don't have to! Disclosure of this sort is at the discretion of the seller. If the property was just busted as a grow op it would be a different story....but I digress...in a big way as this is another topic altogether!

Back to the Question...Why did Alberta Health Remove the Archive? 

I wish I could ask them myself! This seems like a stupid thing to do. How am I suppose to do my due diligence for my clients when the search will only go back two years? 

I can do a Google search on the property address and that will bring some of the info up, but when I click on the page I get a '404' meaning the page doesn't exist anymore! Like the picture below:

Not Found

I have no idea why they have removed the archive, this was a 'go-to' site for me for the past 5 years...in fact they had a URL that was http://growops.net for the longest time. Click that link....you will see that it is parked with GoDaddy! (just make sure to come back 'cause I have a present for you in the next paragraph!) 

Where do we go From Here?

I will tell you where I go...I am still going to visit this site. I am still going to do my Google search...I suggest you do the same.

I am also looking forward to what the task force comes up with! If any of you reading this know Mayor Nenshi...let him know I would love to be a part of that task force!

Ok here is the present I promised you....this is a link with all the archived Grow Op information going back to to 2004 

Make sure you bookmark this page, you will surely need it in the future if you are looking to buy a home in Calgary.

If you are a REALTOR®...you can buy me a beer later...if you are a buyer...well...you know what to do!;)
