You have until July 29 to make your submission to the government agency.
In May, Sessions Cannabis announced it had applied for numerous licenses to operate pot shops in Ontario, including one at 26 Prince Edward Walk, adjacent to the LCBO in downtown Elliot Lake.
In reply to ElliotLakeToday’s request for local contact information, Sessions Cannabis said, “The owner of the Sessions Cannabis franchise is a resident of Elliot Lake who wishes to remain anonymous at this time.”
In a news release Sessions said, “Sessions Cannabis (Sessions), an Ontario-based brand specializing in cannabis retail, has announced its next expansion with the planned opening of 30 more stores across the province this year, including a new location in Elliot Lake. The storefront will be located on Prince Edward Walk in a plaza shared with the LCBO.”
