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.
Aha! There were email bounce backs, which seems to be source of problem. AGCO clock started ticking as soon as emails sent out, even though they knew notice wasn’t received. Then the winners were DQ’d after submitting line of credit letter a few days late.
