FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – At a Peace River Regional District Board meeting on Thursday, January 23, Directors made a decision regarding a proposal for a cannabis-related business in Charlie Lake.

Directors made the decision to vote against the proposed zoning bylaw amendments that would have allowed a cannabis store to operate on the property of the Charlie Lake Store.

The applicant, John Hynes, was looking to apply for a provincial retail licence if the District were to approve his request so that the location would be a one-stop-shop for residents and travellers using the Alaska Highway.

The Regional District currently prohibits cannabis retail in all regional district zoning.
