Whether you will be able to buy cannabis from a retail store in Thunder Bay will be decided by city council tonight.
City Manager Norm Gale tells us they will formally tell the province whether we want to opt-in, or opt-out.
He notes we have already received $130,000 from the Ford government for considering the idea and if we opt-in, we will get an additional $130,000.
If we opt out we get $5,000.
The city manager adds, an online survey showed 84 per cent of respondents from Thunder Bay “favoured the opt in option for permitting legalized cannabis storefronts,”
