TORONTO -- Two politicians are going door-to-door in an east-end Toronto neighbourhood in hopes of weeding out marijuana grow-houses.

Scarborough-Agincourt MP Jim Karygiannis and city councillor Mike Del Grande say their crusade is already a success.

Toronto police Superintendent Tony Warr applauds the politicians' efforts, but says they should stick to lawmaking and let the police do the police work.

Warr says it's "almost vigilantism."

He says if the method used to obtain information is illegal, police can't execute a search warrant.

Karygiannis says his hands-on crusade against grow-ops is building awareness and promoting more community involvement.

He says they're not trying to promote vigilantism.

He says they're trying to promote "watch your neighbours."
