Trudeau in BC regarding fires

Prime Minister Trudeau will finally take a first hand look at the fires in BC today.

Trudeau and several of his cabinet ministers will join Premier John Horgan at Williams Lake for an update on the situation.  The evacuation order there was lifted last week, but at least 150 fires are still burning across the province and about 6,000 evacuees can’t go home.

Howie Centre raid

A man is facing charges after the Nova Budds medical marijuana dispensary at Howie Centre was raided by police Friday.

The business on Kings Road, was operating as a medical marijuana dispensary and three men were arrested.  Two were released without charges but a 34 year old Port Hawkesbury man is facing a trafficking charge.  Police say storefronts or dispensaries are not licensed to sell cannabis for medical or any purpose.
