Have a say…West Kelowna cannabis survey available
Jul 18, 2018 Jasmin Doobay
If you want a say…here’s your chance.
What restrictions should be placed on retail cannabis shops in the City of West Kelowna?
You are being asked to provide feedback by completing a short survey by July 31, 2018.
On October 17, 2018 non-medical cannabis sales will be permitted under Bill C-45, the Cannabis Act; medical use will continue as per usual under federal regulations.
In BC, municipalities will have authority to regulate certain aspects of non-medical retail sales including: Zoning and other land use regulations, such as distances between stores, parks and schools; business licensing, including restrictions on hours of operation; and further restrictions on where smoking and vaping can occur in public.
The survey is available online at www.westkelownacity.ca/cannabissurvey.
Paper copies are available at City Hall on Cameron Road for those unable to complete the questionnaire online.
