Recently released documents detailing a hearing of the Toronto Licensing Tribunal that took place on April 6 of this year describe the curious case of Mr. Daniel Daher Montlouis, proprietor of Nature’s Touch Dispensary, located at 1346 St Clair Ave W.
According to the document, Mr. Montlouis had been seeking a retail food store license from the city in order to be able to sell cannabis edibles, including lollipops and soft drinks.
Representing himself at the hearing, Mr. Montlouis stated that after a fire had broken out in the building his dispensary is located in, shortly after it had opened, he had been advised to apply for a food retail store license by City of Toronto inspectors.
No officers of the city present at the hearing in April testified to giving him this advice.
In addition, he stated that his intention in applying for the license was to prepare for when cannabis is legalized in 2018.
It was also noted that Mr. Montlouis’ dispensary had been raided on May 26, 2016 as part of Project Claudia, and as such, Mr. Montlouis is currently facing several charges under the Criminal Code of Canada, the Toronto Municipal Code and the Planning Act with court dates pending for all matters.
