PETERS – Government delays for retail cannabis more than just a hiccup

IMAGINE STARTING YOUR OWN BUSINESS. You want to open up a neighbourhood beer and wine store.

It’s a highly regulated business, so you go through all the government hoops and get your city business license. You secure your supplier, rent a storefront and make plans to do some staff hiring. Now you’re just waiting on the province to give you the final okay.

And six months after getting your business license, six months of paying rent on your storefront, you still can’t open your business because you haven’t heard word one from the government.
