How to use this map
Use the + and - controls at left — or your mouse's scroll bar, or pinch on a touch screen — to zoom in and out of the map. Although the map is centred on Brandon, it includes data from all over Manitoba, and most of the seizures have been in Winnipeg.
Click on any marker in the map below for more details on the forfeiture at that location:
- Green markers show seizures valued at less than $1,000.
- Yellow markers denote seizures valued between $1,000 and $10,000.
- Red markers indicate seizures valued at more than $10,000.
- Small purple dots mark seizures where insufficient information was available to calculate the estimated value of the items seized.
Locations for some forfeitures were vague, so some mapped locations are estimated.
Total value of property seized is based on amounts of cash and estimated values of property as reported by police. Where U.S. dollars were seized, the value has been converted to Canadian dollars based on exchange rates in February 2014. Where vehicles were seized, their value was estimated, in Canadian dollars, based on Blue Book and Black Book values or averaging asking prices for similar vehicles in February 2014.
