Summerland grow-op shatters home owner's dream

(Courtesy Anna Everson)

Back in 2008, Anna Everson, a nurse, purchased a home near Summerland, B.C. to provide respite care for families with severely disabled children.

She found a house for sale on a semi-rural property not far from Summerland; she got a realtor and hired the services of a home inspector before purchasing.

But, within a month her dreams were crushed, when she discovered she had purchased a   mold infested grow-op.

It could cost up to $100, 000 to repair the house and she's suing several parties to recoup the cost of repairs.

CBC Reporter Brady Strachan visited with Anna Everson to hear her story.
