The Province of Ontario is providing an opportunity for municipalities to decide by January 22, 2019 if they wish to opt-out of cannabis retail stores in their communities.  In order to assist Council in its decision-making regarding this matter, we are seeking input from the community.  A summary of responses to the following questions will help provide staff with information to prepare a report to Council on this matter.
