The City of Fort Saskatchewan wants public feedback on a 'smoky' topic.
Residents are encouraged to fill out the approach to Cannabis in Fort Saskatchewan survey. It is available online until March 2.
"We all obviously have our own perspectives and opinions about where we want to see it, but I think our job as council is to be a representative of the people that live here," said councillor Deanna Lennox. "So it's really important to fill out the survey and provide us with that feedback so we can move forward in a direction that people in this community can feel good about.”
The results from the survey will be presented to council at the March 13 meeting.
The Chamber of Commerce is hosting a Conversation about Cannabis, with Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville MLA Jessica Littlewood, Sherwood Park-Fort Saskatchewan MP Garnett Genuis and mayor Gale Katchur, on Feb. 22. 
Registration is required for the talk, which can be done here.
“It’s a good opportunity for people interested to go out and talk to provincial and federal representatives," noted Lennox.
The province rolled out regulations on how cannabis will be sold in Alberta on Friday (Feb.16).
