One of the winners of a lottery held to apply for cannabis retail licences in Ontario has been disqualified.
Officials with the province’s governing agency, the Alcohol and Gaming Commission, say the entity has been removed for breaking a rule that prohibits someone from changing the name of the person on an application or the corporate structure of the company operating the store.
The commission selected 25 winners through the lottery process last month, with each application putting up a six-thousand-dollar non-refundable fee and a 50-thousand-dollar letter of credit.
The first private stores are set to open April 1st.
