I was gonna be funny and mention that if the OPP wanted pot they'd call a dealer on their cell
When I was up north in the early summer there was a lot of activity on theOPP surveillance channels. Our cottage is less than a mile from the largest meth lab bust in the province. Perhaps the encrypted activity I heard up there was the pre-bust gabbering.
When we were last up there a few helicopters flew over low. They were not coast guard, Fleetnet at the time indicated that noone was missing, no need for the search & rescue copters. I had my scanner on & heard nothing.
For the summer grow up bust the RCMP also provided helicopters to the various operations. I seam to remember hearing them on 142.7700 in the past. Coast Guard helicopters flying budget is pretty tight and used up mostly in the Central Region by openning and closing the navigation season. When I had a summer job with CCG in Prescott I got to fly around the Seaway twice.
Most of the grow op cutting comms are pretty boring.
