Fa la la la la, la la la la...
Beginning with the radio broadcast of an interview on CBC’s The Homestretch program on Thursday, October 18, 2018, BRCA has become aware of various public statements that misrepresent or that fail to place in context certain current events affecting the broader topic of public approvals for cannabis shops in the Bridgeland-Riverside community.
The purpose of this document is to present, in an FAQ style, the information presently in BRCA’s possession that it feels is relevant to this topic.
This document also invites feedback—see the final section below. Since last Thursday, the interesting topic of cannabis legalization generally—which has now become linked to media coverage about Bridgeland-Riverside specifically—has led to BRCA receiving an influx of emails and social media comments. We hope that people who are interested will help us understand more than we can right now how to make sense of the communications now flying around.
The BRCA has issued the following Statement.
