So how many cannabis business licence applications are too many?
One Vernon councillor wants to find out.
Akbal Mund will bring a notice of motion to council’s regular meeting Tuesday, near the end of the agenda, asking that council direct administration to provide a report with options to restrict the number of cannabis retail stores permitted to operate in Vernon.
Since March 25, a total of nine applications have been brought before council and there is another one on Tuesday’s agenda.
Staff have recommended, in each case, council support or provide a positive recommendation to the provincial licensing body for each application.
