They had a flood there a few weeks back, due to, believe it or not, liquor bottles on the roof blocking a drain and then causing several issues.  I spoke to the building manager.  Not sure if remediation from that is related.

I notice that the Stop Work order is (logically) from WorkSafe BC. I still fail to see how some businesses can be shut down by one government agency while other businesses breaking the law are actively enabled by a different level of government.

I'm sure WorkSafeBC would shut down a pot store if they could determine there was asbestos in the workplace.

 

Different government agencies have different areas of responsibility and powers, so if the one responsible for enforcing the drug laws is directed not to enforce, and bylaw officers are directed to not enforce a bylaw, it doesn't suddenly grant the Parks department or WorkSafeBC the power to enforce those rules?

The point being that all laws should be enforced equally.

This store is just all closed up, stock still on the shelves, like it has been frozen in time.  I wonder what the plan is here.

 

I hope the one long-time worker has found employment.  He was a pretty nice guy.

If it's true that asbestos has been exposed, can they re-open without at least alleging to have replaced the stock on the shelves?

That's a huge improvement over the way it looked fully stocked.

So what's the word on the street? Will they move back in after repairs, or look for another location?
