Upcoming Olympic Plebiscite and Cannabis Legalization


Olympic Plebiscite on November 13, 2018

The 2026 Olympic Bid Plebiscite is fast approaching. As I’ve stated before, I support the public’s right to a plebiscite and will honour the results of the vote. To be best informed before the vote, I encourage you to visit www.calgary2026.ca/ and to review the City’s previous reports on the issue at http://www.calgary.ca/CSPS/Recreation/Pages/Calgary-2026-Olympic-bid/Olympics-Reports.aspx

Legalization of Cannabis – What You Need to Know

Cannabis will be legalized in Canada for the first time in 95 years. Here’s what you need to know before the legalization this month.

Under Calgary’s Cannabis Consumption Bylaw, cannabis may be consumed on private property. It is illegal to consume non-medical cannabis in any form (smoking, vaping, or edibles) in public places, except for designated cannabis areas. At the time of this writing, no designated cannabis consumption areas had been confirmed. As Council designates them, their locations will be available on calgary.ca/cannabis.

Medical cannabis may be smoked or vaped in the same public places that are allowed under the Smoking and Vaping Bylaw. See calgary.ca/cannabis for details.
