满地宝市议员候选人就大麻合法化持谨慎态度

乐活按语:选你中意的候选人,每一票都有可能改变潮水的方向!
大选前,为了让广大读友更了解选区的候选人,我们采用电邮的方式就大麻问题征询了三联市的市长、议员候选人相应的意见。其中满地宝的回复率最低(高贵林的回复率是100%)——根据发送状态显示,邮件到达了2位市长候选人及7位议员候选人(另外7位议员候选人未联系到),收到3位议员的回复。

就电邮中的两个问题——大麻合法化后,是否允许非医疗用大麻销售店开张?对大麻吸食场所的限制。

议员们的回复如下:

Meghan Lahti女士告知了现行的市议会决定。大麻合法化后,满地宝市允许在特定区域开店。议会刚通过决议,向公众咨询销售区域方面的问题。大麻只能在私人场所吸食,禁止在公众场合吸食。

Council has determined that we will allow cannabis sales through spot zoning, when it becomes legal. This will require strict adherence to such things as distance from schools, etc. At last nights council meeting we approved a public consultation for the proposed zoning bylaw changes. At this point, we have determined that cannabis will not be allowed to be consumed in any establishment, or in public places, and must be consumed on private property only.

Sharleen Karamanian女士从个人角度不赞同大麻店开张,但是作为议员,要认真考虑国家的决定。市政府应该慎重决定怎么卖、在哪里销售等。大麻在公共场合吸食和栽种应该更慎重。市政府不应该太匆忙地推出关于大麻销售的规定。

I do agree with the democratic process that has spoken in Canada and if I am a member of Council I must respect the decisions of the nation. With that in mind, as a member of Port Moody Council we must examine the effects of the federal decision on local governments. Port Moody Council in June of 2018 passed a motion directing City staff to prepare an amendment to the Zoning Bylaw to include what the definition of a retail cannabis store is and Council also included in this bylaw a review on a case by case basis of rezoning applications. There are many factors to consider such as guidelines and regulations around retail operations and the effects on the community. Moreover, consideration has to be given to location of stores and timing of implementation of any retail outlets. The City cannot rush to make decisions without considering an overall impact to the Community.

However, since the federal government has legalized recreation use, local governments must get to work on what changes are needed to ensure an effective response is in place. In answer to your question, I think that the existing smoking bylaws will need to be enforced in relation to cannabis consumption and production of cannabis in our City needs more review.

Tasha Faye Evans女士说,BC省法律禁止在车上、孩子们经常出现的场所,以及所有禁止吸烟的地方吸大麻。在满地宝,公园、游乐场、距离公共建筑或公共汽车站7.5米以内禁止吸大麻。目前,满地宝议会以4:3的比例更倾向于禁止大麻销售。如果能进入议会,她会努力促动对大麻销售的进一步的限制。

Although cannabis for personal consumption will be allowed federally beginning Oct. 17, each province has some discretion in making their own regulations. Here in BC, our provincial laws will prohibit smoking cannabis in cars, areas frequented by children, and anywhere smoking of cigarettes is prohibited. I know that in Port Moody, smoking is prohibited in most public spaces such as parks and playgrounds, and within 7.5 metres of any civic buildings or structures such as bus shelters.

As for retail sales of cannabis, while both the federal and BC provincial laws allow for sales from licensed provincial and private retail stores, municipalities have some say in what happens in their communities. The current Port Moody City Council voted 4 to 3 in favor of allowing retail sales with restrictions, however, this is clearly an evolving situation. If elected to council I would certainly seek input from both provincial and local law enforcement as well as from the community.

巧合的是,三位回复者都是女士。不知道满地宝的男性候选人或者未回复的其他女性候选人们持何种态度。

如果希望获得更多了解,也许只能在候选人见面会上当面询问。让我们走出家门,去见面会上多了解。

更重要的是,在市选的时候别忘记投票!每一张选票,都有可能改变潮水的方向!
