City seeks public opinion about cannabis retail stores

Telephone survey and online public poll launched

BRAMPTON, ON - The City of Brampton is asking its residents for their opinion on whether or not cannabis retail stores should be allowed to operate in Brampton. A telephone survey and an online public poll about cannabis retail stores will seek input from the public to help inform the new City Council.

• The City has engaged a third party firm, Environics, to conduct a telephone survey among a total sample size of 800 Brampton residents representing different demographics. The telephone survey will begin later this week.
• To complement the telephone survey, an online poll is now available on the City's website. The poll closes at 11:59 pm on November 9, 2018.
• Results of both the telephone survey and online poll will form one of many components of a staff report, to be presented to City Council on December 5, 2018, to help Council make an informed decision.
