The province now has more tools to take down meth labs.

R.C.M.P. no longer have to supplement Winnipeg with necessary protective gear as they've been provided their own.

Co-chair of the Manitoba Meth Task Force Keith McCaskill feels the province as a whole will benefit in productivity.

Barry Rud of the Addictions Foundation of Manitoba in Portage stresses the protective gear is extremely important.

He says meth labs are highly flammable and police are vulnerable to the environment's toxicity.
