The Province of BC is opening over 200 taxpayer-funded Gov't BC Cannabis Stores in the next couple of years, at a cost of hundreds of millions of dollars. 

The Association of Canadian Cannabis Retailers (ACCRES) has identified that private enterprise has the capacity to serve the adult public by providing access to regulated cannabis. The expansion of the publicly owned network of cannabis stores is unnecessary and wasteful.

The publicly-owned, BC Cannabis Stores should halt their expansion into British Columbian communities. This investment in publicly owned infrastructure represents an unnecessary expenditure of public funds, especially during a pandemic, when BC is already running a massive deficit.

If you would like to see better use of your tax dollars and would like to support small businesses in your community, please sign and share this petition. Thank you :)
