More Cannabis Legislation – Effective October 17

Posted on Updated on

Yes, further to our post of October 2, 2018 when we advised you about all the Saskatchewan legislation related to cannabis legalization and their effective dates, this new regulation, C-2.111 Reg 1 The Cannabis Control (Saskatchewan) Regulations, published in The Saskatchewan Gazette, Part II, Vol. 114 No. 42, October 19, 2018. On the face of it, this would seem to be a rather important piece.

The regulation deals with the possession, distribution and consumption of Cannabis, including:

  • Cannabis Retail Store Permits
  • Cannabis Wholesale Permits
  • Cannabis Permits generally
  • Registered Suppliers
  • Taxation
  • Administration and Enforcement

The coming-in-force date is the same as that of section 1 of its enabling statute, which is October 17, 2018.

The earlier post with all the effective dates, which you bookmarked, has been updated – so you have all provincial cannabis-related legislation listed in one place.

And in the interest of thoroughness, this edition of the Saskatchewan Gazette also includes SR 73/2018 The Snowmobile (Designated Trail) Amendment Regulations, 2018.

Reconciliation, Decolonization, Indigenization discussed during Access to Justice Week

Posted on Updated on

By Cheryl Giesbrecht, CLASSIC Student Manager

Pro Bono Students Canada (PBSC) started out Access to Justice Week with a Volunteer Appreciation Event!  As one of PBSC’s community partners, the Community Legal Assistance Services for Saskatoon Inner City Inc (CLASSIC) teamed up with them to present a vital question for consideration by volunteers and others at the College as they enjoyed their coffee and candy: What do the words Decolonization, Reconciliation, and Indigenization mean to you, both professionally and in your personal life?  The posterboard also travelled up to Professor Sarah Buhler’s Access to Justice class, and spent some time in the hallways and lawby of the College throughout the week.  It was understandably difficult for many students to reduce their thoughts to the size of a stickie note, and so many interesting conversations took place around the board as well.  We hope that these important conversations continue well beyond Access to Justice Week 2018.
