Kawartha Lakes and PTBO may see cannabis outlets
Ontario is set to get 50 more cannabis retail stores starting in October with proposed openings in Peterbrough and the City of Kawartha Lakes.
The finance minister and attorney general say the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario will hold a lottery for 42 retail store authorizations.
Another eight stores will be located on First Nations reserves through a separate process.
Previously, 25 retailers were chosen through a lottery to open the province's first brick-and-mortar cannabis stores on April 1, but fewer than half met the deadline.
