Tuesday 11:47 GMT

Tuesday 10:53 GMT

“They were actively seeking producers to come and locate their businesses, and granting very lucrative incentives to locate in their province, so I’m not surprised that they’ve jumped all over the retail side of things, because that’s just how they’ve viewed this: as an opportunity from day one.”

“The minister in charge of NB Liquor said to me that they don’t want a delay in legalization, because every day that they’re not opening up is costing them money because they’ve invested so heavily in these stores that are currently sitting empty.”

Tuesday 10:53 GMT

If you thought social media was a cesspool of fake news, trolling and creepiness, it turns out that people across the world agree with you.
