CTV Toronto: Opposition Leader John Tory wants the government to establish a provincewide registry for homes used to grow marijuana. More than 450 marijuana grow ops have been uncovered in Ontario so far this year, and Tory said the province has a responsibility to protect families who either live near the illegal operations or may move into the dwellings... Liberals have passed legislation allowing hydro companies to cut off electricity to suspected grow ops without notice, and allowing police to seize assets and use the proceeds to fight crime.
