Several media outlets broke a story that Oakville is home to the Ontario Cannabis Store Distribution Centre.

In a press release issued at 6:00 AM Tuesday, January 8th, OPSEU President, Smokey Thomas provided the supposed street address of the distribution centre.

The Ontario government does not give exact locations of the 5 LCBO distribution centres. It provides just the city. The province does not provide this information for security reasons.

When asked about the security of the Ontario Cannabis Distribution Centre, Halton Regional Police Chief Tanner stated, “The government has legalized cannabis and are responsible for the production and security of legal government cannabis production and sales.”

When the liberals were in power they decided that Cannabis would be sold through the LCBO. Under the terms with the previous government the LCBO and OPSEU negotiated a collective agreement. The agreement was that frontline cannabis retail staff would have become OPSEU members.
