KENORA, ON – The leader in Northeast Ontario's leading Ontario province wants the provincial government to change its retail cannabis sales license plan.
The Grand Chief Francis Kavanaugh, the 3th Grand Confraternation Committee, decided to only authorize 25 vendors initially, and only in large population centers, all of North Ontario's northern Ontario began to be infected to participate in the cannabis market.
In this letter, ministers of ministries Greg Rickford, Caroline Mulroney and Vic Fedeli have written a letter that the government of the conservative government plans to "face to face" in a Liberal government plan. This is creating a legal cannabis market that is "economically" strengthened by the nation's first people. "
Kavanaugh noted that Liberals want to agree to the First Nations Councils for cannabis reserve sales.
A review of the plan, at least 50,000 neighbors will give licenses to the North Coast centers, "it creates real barriers," said the letter, regarding the participation of any of the first Northern Ontario in the North.
According to Kavanaugh, other provinces, including Manitoba, Alberta and BC, are the criteria for favoring the participation of indigenous communities in retail patterns.
Likewise, there is no lottery in the fact that 25 initia- tive licenses in the province do not have the option of finding "quality proposals", "protecting young people and finding an illegal market".
Kavanaugh, according to Ontario's Alcohol and Gaming Commission, would have to give more retail license to Ontario Ontario or create a special United Nations allocation.
"It is impossible to confuse the geographic dispersal of the North Market and the commitment of small size supplies (cannabis)," said his letter.
The leaders of the first nations are not the only northern politicians concerned about retailing cannabis retail.
Fort Frances's deputy boarder Douglas Judson says "it's not a cannabis advocate," but northern communities advocate getting "swift".
The Government's plan does not concern the ability of Northern entrepreneurs, including first-class businesses, to participate in the market.
"Some other members of the economic development that are interested in our communities seek to create new spaces in the future, such as getting something new in the future for the region," said Judson in a conversation.
The current plan completely excludes large districts, such as Kenora and Rainy River, employers who have planned planning and planning for years, can not participate.
