As part of the ACCES-Cannabis program, the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) and its partners carried out on Wednesday, September 16, a vast operation to dismantle outdoor cannabis production sites in several sectors of the province, including the Outaouais.

The eradication day resulted in the seizure of 5,210 plants. Eight (8) people were arrested (including 3 in the Outaouais). The location of the arrests in the Outaouais was not specified. Police officers were active in the Center-du-Québec, Estrie, Mauricie, Laurentians and Outaouais regions.

Since the start of the season, the seizures of illegal outdoor plantings throughout the territory of the SQ have therefore made it possible to seize 32,710 plants and make nearly 50 arrests so far. Daily police work in this area will continue over the coming weeks.

The SQ reminded the public to communicate any relevant information regarding the production of cannabis to the Criminal Information Center of the Sûreté du Québec at 1-800-659-4264.
