Toronto incumbent mayor John Tory says city preparing for cannabis legalization By Alana MacLeod Web Writer Global News

With cannabis legalization just days away, incumbent Toronto mayor John Tory says he’s preparing City officials and police officers for any issues that may arise.

In a press release sent out Sunday, Tory said he wrote a letter to Ontario Attorney General Caroline Mulroney, outlining the City’s plans.

“While I support cannabis legalization, that support — as mayor of Toronto — has consistently been contingent on three basic principles being satisfied: that safety of neighbourhoods is maintained; public health is protected; and the City isn’t unfairly burdened with increased enforcement and social costs triggered by this significant change,” Tory wrote in a series of tweets.

“I’ve asked City officials and Toronto police to closely monitor and report on the impacts of cannabis legalization so that any issues can be dealt with quickly.”
