5. How is your message being received during this campaign?

6. Voting begins on Oct. 17 — ironically the day of marijuana legalization. The new council will have to decide soon if your municipality will permit storefront cannabis sales, or opt out altogether. Should your municipality allow pot shops or ‘just say no’?

  • We definitely cannot say “ No”! The new Council will have to work with the business sector, we will have to control how many outlets and where they will be situated!
