FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – At Fort St. John City Council, Cannabis Corner was approved and the next step for the application is now proceeding to the Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch for final review.
The proposed non-medical retail store is to be located at #2 – 10108 100 Street, in the location of the old Playtime Toys. The hours of operation will be 9:00 am to 11:00 pm, seven days per week.
The three partners Aaron Lepine, Darwin Lepine (better known in the community as Danny) and Lori Bahm are all longtime Fort St John residents. “We look forward to not only providing a safe and legal cannabis source but also to providing much-needed employment opportunities to local residents,” said Danny Lepine.
Lepine goes on to say, “We are pleased that we have finally received municipal approval for our license as we have been paying a lease on an empty building for several months already. We have actually been engaged in the process for over one year now, and it has been a very long and drawn out process”

Which have proposed locations in the allowable area of the City’s C-2 (Downtown Core Commercial) zone for a cannabis retail store.
