Oh, here we go again. There’s a show-cause hearing scheduled next week to look at where the following businesses should be allowed to retain their city business licence. As you all know, the city doesn’t schedule these hearings unless the answer is pretty well: No f’ing way.
Avalon Sunsplash Ltd. dba 420 Convenience Store at 316 West Hastings Street
and dba Cannabis Culture Magazine and Pot TV (Administrative Office) at
201 – 303 West Hastings Street
and dba Marc Emery’s Cannabis Culture Headquarters (Retail Store) at
307 West Hastings Street
The last time there was a showdown between the city and the Marc Emery marijuana empire was in the 1999, when the city had a long list of complaints about his businesses, which are detailed here.That’s when Philip Owen was mayor, Sam Sullivan was still a councillor and the city was determined to clean up those scruffy people from the streets.
