RCMP expert warns of festival drugs danger

A warning from local RCMP ahead of this weekend’s Shambhala Music Festival after two drug related deaths at two previous festivals in BC this summer.

Marty Kooiman with the Drug and Organised Crime awareness service says drug dealers don’t care what they’re selling you.


The Boonstock Music Festival in Penticton on the long weekend saw dozens of drug overdoses – claiming the life of one 24 year old woman- and leaving two others in critical condition.

A 21 year old man was also found dead in his tent at the Pemberton Music Festival last month.
