The City of Moose Jaw Has Mailed the Property Assessment Notices for 2018

The Saskatchewan Government has released the first details of what will be the rules for marijuana legislation this summer across the country. Up to 60 permits will be issued for private retailers across the province with two being set aside for Moose Jaw and all will be regulated by the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority.

Saskatchewan is the final province to release details about what the local legislation will be for cannabis sale and use when the national legalization rolls out in just a couple of months, but this is only one piece of the puzzle. There are still no details about legal consumption age.

As we wait for the rest of the details to be released, Moose Jaw Police Chief Rick Bourassa is also interested in the fine print since he had a hand in the process.  He's interested in seeing what recommendations were adopted and how the roll out will occur.

"The Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police was asked to inform that discussion (federally) and so I was fortunate enough to be one of the chiefs that was chosen." explained Bourassa. "Provincially, our Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police has been heavily involved in that."

"I'm not the only one, as there were several of us involved in that but it's been very good. We've had very good conversations and have been able to inform at an operational level."

Chief Bourassa says it's been an interesting process especially when you consider all officers currently on duty have gone through training that has told them that drugs are bad and anyone possessing them should be arrested.

"We don't make the law, we apply the law. We will do the same with this but I want to be careful when I speak for myself and not for the police organization... this is not a big leap for me and I think all will work out well. It's a change and a bit of a change of mind set but I don't see it being a huge deal. When all is said and done in a couple of years, it will be not even noticeable."

"The decision was made to regulate it and I think that it's probably a good decision and that we will be eventually served quite well."
