The Town of Tecumseh is launching a 30-day consultation on retail cannabis facilities in town.

“When we made the decision to opt out of hosting retail cannabis facilities, it was still early and there were many unknowns,” said Gary McNamara, Mayor of Tecumseh. “Over the last two years we have seen how the industry has operated and my colleagues and I agreed to seek out public comment and information from Administration and possibly reconsider allowing these businesses in Town.”

Anyone wishing to provide comments and engage in conversation on the prospect of permitting retail cannabis in Tecumseh may do so on the Town’s Placespeak platform. During the consultation period, Administration will be compiling a report including any data that can be sourced on the experience of retail cannabis in other jurisdictions. This will be shared with Council at a future meeting.

Following the 30 day comment period and collection of information requested by Council, a report will be provided to Council in June. Council is expected to make a decision on the matter at that time.
