Ontario Finally Released its REC Retail Rules

And they're not that surprising for those who've been keeping up.

Doug Ford's Ontario Government Turns Surly in Refusing to Disclose Ontario Cannabis Store Information

  • Ontario Finance Minister Vic Fedeli claimed on Monday the Ontario Cannabis Store’s backlog "has now been taken care of and we’re back to normal," meaning Ontario customers should expect delivery in one to three days. The OCS website still warns of a delivery of three to five days. (CityNews)
  • The OCS released a statement that it had cleared its backlog. (Twitter)
  • When NDP MPP Sara Singh asked Fedeli about the still-unnamed warehouse operator and how the company was selected, Fedeli responded, “I can appreciate very much that the NDP don’t quite understand how business works, but as the security of the OCS warehouse is a top priority, we will not be sharing further information on the day-to-day operation. That’s how business works. Idiot.” (iPolitics)
  • Fedeli later apologized generally without naming Singh or saying precisely what he was apologizing for.
