Kerry Balonjan started this petition to Filomena Tassi (Member of Parliment) and

An application has been put forth to allow the opening of a cannabis retail store at 11 Hatton Dr., Ancaster. This is the location where the very familiar "Your Choice Variety" used to stand. The unfortunate part about this is that although the property is zoned commercial, it is embedded in a residential neighbourhood with lots of neighbouring children. The location not only increases access to cannabis by children and underage youth but also undermines the integrity of the neighbourhood itself. Currently, in Ancaster, there is one active cannabis retail shop located at 1142 Wilson St. W and another one in progress at 1428 Sandhill Dr. Both of which are located in more appropriate commercial areas and limit access to children and youth. This will be the THIRD cannabis retail store in Ancaster. To put in perspective, there is only ONE beer store and TWO active liquor stores in the area. Along with this, the proposed location borders an area frequently used by residents for leisure activities including walking, bike riding, rollerblading and dog walking. The increase in traffic to the area would constitute increased safety risks to residents as the area lacks the infrastructure to sustain such an expansion in movement. Let's stand together. Let's keep our children and our community safe. Cannabis retail stores DO NOT belong in residential areas. Sign the petition to show your support to your community.  Along with signing this petition please visit www.agco.ca/content/cannabis-submissions to formally refute the licence from going through. Formal submissions are our best way to display our concerns! Thank you for your help!
