Ontario's Police Raids, Illicit Dispensaries, and Precarious Labour.
I am asking Ontario's Premier and Attorney General to ensure that the province's cannabis dispensary workers not be arrested during ongoing raids of illicit cannabis dispensaries.
Why is this important?
Dispenasry workers face fines, arrest, and up to 2 years in jail for the crime of working (and paying taxes) in a grey/black market venture. Please help workers caught in this regrettable, structural failure under Ontario's Conservative Government, and its failed MJ distribution scheme.
More arrests, this time in Ottawa and Windsor, maybe Leo Lucier could get you some respondents: https://sputniknews.com/us/201811091069661388-cannabis-shops-raided-ontario/
