Thanks to the police raid on the legislature five years ago, tongues wag whenever the boys in blue show up or near the legislative precincts. So when the police were spotted outside the legislature's old armouries - which is now home to The Vancouver Sun and BCTV's offices - questions were asked about what they were doing there. And here's the answer: "There's a big sign outside that says police training exercise," explained The Vancouver Sun's Craig McInnes, who works in the building. "There are many people, heavily-laden with gear and weapons, who ocassionally go into the washroom behind us and dump their stuff on the floor. There's two things I hope out of this: one that it's not live fire and the second is that the building at the end of the exercise doesn't look like a building the fire department has used."
