Mississauga, Markham opt out of hosting retail cannabis stores

Mississauga, Markham opt out of hosting retail cannabis stores

Two Toronto-area municipalities have decided not to allow brick-and-mortar cannabis stores within their boundaries.

Councillors in Mississauga and Markham voted Wednesday to opt out of hosting privately operated retail cannabis stores, which are expected to open across the province next spring.

Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie says the city feels there are too many unanswered questions on cannabis stores and the province has not given municipalities any control over where the shops would be located.

She says Mississauga may choose to opt in at a later date but wants to consult further with the community.
