Couche-Tard hires lobbyist in bid to sell cannabis

Alimentation Couche-Tard is interested in selling cannabis in its stores and has hired a lobbyist to secure its consideration in Quebec’s distribution model.

The depanneur chain has hired TACT Intelligence-conseil to help lobby to sell marijuana products.

Former health minister Yves Bolduc’s chief of staff Marie-Ève ​​Bédard has been hired for a year to push for the plan.

She will earn less than $10,000 for her work.
