An Ontario-based MP and Conservative leadership candidate is demanding that Health Canada make immediate moves to halt what he alleges to be cannabis-related “potential criminality and corruption” in his riding.

Hastings-Lennox and Addington MP Derek Sloan wrote a letter to Health Minister Patty Hajdu urging her department to take action against local cannabis operations that he says are stirring up his constituents’ anxieties, noting his belief that “…potentially criminal elements have sought to utilize loopholes in existing federal regulations to enrich themselves and ignore municipal bylaws via large scale cannabis growing operations.”

In the letter, Sloan claims residents’ complaints to the federal agency have gone unacknowledged. He also demands that Hajdu provide him “with a list of potential remedies and interventions we can take to ensure the rule of law is protected in my riding, and that the concerns of residents and officials alike are heard and responded to by Health Canada officials.”

The MP told Quinte News that some residents have been the victims of harassment, such as finding animal carcasses left on front porches, and that the OPP’s ability to address any related issues is limited due to the current regulatory framework. Who is alleged to have left these carcasses behind, or how many times this has happened, or how it relates to cannabis is unclear.

“We need to enquire about several specific properties amidst ongoing nefarious activities related to cannabis operations that are causing anxiety and frustration amongst residents and officials alike,” he wrote.
