Judge Puts Two-Week Hold on New Cannabis Licenses in Ontario

The decision by Justice David Corbett of the Superior Court of Ontario on Thursday suspends the province’s lottery process for two weeks, meaning it is not likely any of the retail stores would open as of October 2019 as planned.

On Sept. 25, Justice Corbett will decide whether to go ahead.

Cannabis lawyer Caryma Sa’d was in the downtown courtroom while the action played out. According to her, the crux of the case revolved around initial emails that were sent to all lottery winners, which had “bounced” when the AGCO sent them out.
