Windsor city hall says resident needs to trim his wildflower garden — he disagrees
Jim Sutherland says he arrived home Tuesday to find a note from Windsor city hall attached to his front door. It said his property is unkempt and in need of cleaning up. “I say they’re wrong,” Sutherland told CBC News, adding that he has a well-maintained property. “My wife and I spend a lot of time everyday taking care of it.” © Dale Molnar/CBC Windsor resident Jim Sutherland says he doesn’t believe he needs to trim his wildflower garden. Sutherland’s property contains a variety of plant life, including sunflowers, daisies, black-eyed susans, as well as plants that were planted before Sutherland and his wife moved in.

In an outdoor parking lot between a shelter and a Tim Hortons in downtown Ottawa, black market cannabis dealer Jay (not his real name) said he can’t think of the last time business has been so good. His pop-up dispensary moves around the capital city from time to time, depending on when he gets tipped off about potential police raids, which he said have tapered off lately. Despite the legalization of recreational cannabis almost a year ago, Jay insists his customer base has remained strong.
Canadian Cannabis Producers Quadruple Hiring In A Year
It’s good to be in a booming new business ― and in the case of Canadian cannabis, maybe more so for employees than employers, for now. Cannabis producers haven’t yet turned a profit, but employment in the legal cannabis trade quadrupled between the 2017-18 fiscal year and 2018-19, according to new data from Statistics Canada. That was the period during which cannabis was legalized. There were 9,200 people employed in cannabis production, StatCan said, up from 2,630 a year earlier. That number measures employment at cannabis producers licenced by Health Canada, and it doesn’t include jobs in other parts of the cannabis industry, such as retail.

“I do my own market research,” Jay said. “I ask people, ‘Why don’t you go to Hobo (a legal cannabis store in Ottawa)?’ They say, ‘Legal product tastes bad. It’s s—t.’ I say, ‘Don’t worry, I got you.’”
Things weren’t supposed to be going this well for the Jays of the world. Dozens of legal cannabis producers, backed by billions in investor capital, were expected to put the black market on its heels, launching Canada to the forefront of an expanding global industry with the promise of mass-produced, high-quality, heavily regulated marijuana.
But scandals, sluggish earnings and executive shakeups have replaced the soaring expectations of a year ago. Government data show that the legal market has only supplanted 14 per cent of the black market since legalization on Oct. 17, 2018, and some are concerned that further inroads may be difficult to come by.
Ottawa in talks to work out cannabis rules for First Nations territories
The federal government’s lead minister on the cannabis file has been in talks with First Nations leaders over how to carve out First Nations jurisdiction over the cannabis industry on their territories. Ottawa initially cut First Nations out of the cannabis regulatory and revenue-sharing regime when it developed the Cannabis Act which gave provincial and territorial governments control over the distribution and retail end, while Health Canada oversees the licensing of commercial production. Ottawa also splits excise tax revenues 25 per cent to 75 per cent with provincial and territorial governments.

There is no shortage of answers to the question of what went wrong in the cannabis industry’s disappointing first year — among them, mediocre product quality, uncompetitive pricing and a heavy regulatory burden — but one thing seems certain: there is plenty of blame to go around.

“One of the first things that comes to mind for me when I think about the last year is a reality check,” said Aaron Salz, chief executive of the boutique investment firm Stoic Advisory Inc., which has been involved in the industry since 2016. “A reality check for everyone: consumers, the government, producers, the public markets. I wish there was something more positive to say.”

In Salz’s view, one of the biggest problems was that the industry’s early focus on scale — something that others agree was largely a symptom of the push to raise capital ahead of legalization — distracted it from other important considerations.
“There had been such a focus on scale over everything else, that quality in particular got left behind,” he said. “I think the first miscalculation that took place was when larger companies presumed that if they got the big supply agreements and they were first to market, they would capture all this early market share and that would be a huge advantage for them in the future.”
But the early days of legalization were plagued by a massive shortage of product. The bigger producers such as Canopy Growth Corp. and Aurora Cannabis Inc. had signed supply agreements promising a consistent stream of products, but were often unable to keep up. Provinces blamed the producers, but producers pointed towards supply-chain challenges such as the delay in obtaining government excise stamps , which had to be pasted on every product.

“In the early days, retailers just wanted product. Any kind of product they could get,” Salz said.
Eventually, more producers entered the market, supply ramped up and product choice grew. But at the same time, customers who chose to buy from the legal market started becoming more discerning of what they liked.
One example is that of Canopy’s Tweed-branded products. In the weeks following legalization, Tweed dominated the online retail space, and Canopy quickly established a market share of more than 30 per cent. But in its most recent quarterly results, the company had to record a revenue adjustment of $8 million to account for unsold product. Management during a conference call acknowledged that although their adult-use oils and gel capsules had initially sold well, demand has been slipping of late.
