The Province of Ontario has received an application to license a cannabis retail store at 243-245 Bank St, the location of the current Cannabis Emporium accessories store. The Province of Ontario has all decision-making power about cannabis retail locations but does ask municipalities to comment.
I am opposed to this store and have filed the following comment with the Province:
The proposed location for this cannabis retail store is less than 150 metres from an established cannabis retail store at 208 Bank St. Bank St. is a lively urban mainstreet and the clustering of cannabis retail stores in this area will detract from the street level experience. The mandatory frosted windows are uninviting and do not create a pleasant pedestrian environment. This proposed location does not represent an acceptable site for a cannabis retail store.
If you wish to file a comment on the application, please visit the AGCO website. Comments will be received until May 28, 2020.
