A town hall meeting to discuss cannabis legislation and legalization has not turned out to be as fruitful for the Town of Kindersley as officials had hoped.

Approximately 40 members of the public attended the cannabis town hall meeting on Feb. 27 at the Elks Hall in Kindersley. Town officials and members of the Kindersley RCMP were at the meeting to address the attendees and to answer any of their questions.

From left, councillors Randy Ervine and Gary Becker, Mayor Rod Perkins, Staff Sgt. Ray Blais, Cpl. Travis Doering and CAO Bernie Morton were on hand to answer any questions.

The mayor said the town and RCMP decided to hold a joint meeting to discuss the pending legalization of cannabis for recreational use. He noted that municipal governments are trying to figure out what they will have to do once cannabis has been legalized, and the Town of Kindersley is hoping to get feedback from its citizens.
