Councillors voted to approve Green Essence (437 Martin), Greenery Cannabis Boutique (465 Main), Zen Canna (2050 Main) and the Fairview Cannabis Store (1652 Fairview).

Council voted to reject another three over concerns about proximity to residences and areas frequented by children.

In total...Council has now approved 8 stores...a city-wide cap of 14 retail locations was adopted by council last month.

The provincial government still has to grant final approval to all private cannabis stores.
