Brampton, Aurora and Halton Hills are three of the final GTA municipalities to opt-in to pot stores, while Vaughan has voted to opt-out on one of the final days to do so.
Municipalities have until Jan. 22 to make a decision whether brick-and-mortar marijuana stores would be allowed within their borders.
Brampton City Council voted 8-3, including Mayor Patrick Brown, in favour of allowing the shops.
Burlington, Toronto, Whitchurch-Stoufville, Ajax, Brock Township, Oshawa, and Clarington had previously opted in to allowing retail cannabis sales.
Whitby has yet to make a decision. If they don’t formally opt out by the 22nd, they will be considered to have opted in.
