There’s talk of a cannabis store opening on the Fort William First Nation,
However, Chief Peter Collins says it will not happen without input from the community members in an upcoming public meeting.
He says “our plan is to consult with the members if they want something of this nature” in the community.
The debate heated up after First Nation officials shut down an unauthorized cannabis store just prior to the New Year.
Chief Collins says the individual opened the store “out of the blue.”
No date has been set for any public meeting on the issue.
