Region bypassed in cannabis store lottery

Waterloo Region won't get a legal marijuana store until at least the end of 2019, after being bypassed in Ontario's cannabis retail licence lottery.

The seventh and final retail licence application for the province's west region was announced Wednesday by an operator in Hamilton.

All proposed cannabis shop licences are subject to approval by the Alcohol and Gaming Commision of Ontario.

If they're approved, the lottery system designed to award the first wave of 25 cannabis store licences across the province will have given three stores to London, two to Hamilton and one each to St. Catharines and Niagara Falls.

Trolls can’t hide, avatars give way to real people, and embarrassing tweets resurface decades later.
