Melfort cannabis store proponent withdraws application

MELFORT — A “for lease” sign sits in the window of what was to be a cannabis store in Melfort after the proponent for the retail store withdrew his application.

Hive Cannabis, owned by BC-based entrepreneur Jean Paul Lim, also withdrew his applications for cannabis stores in Outlook and Rosetown, a spokesperson with the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) told the Recorder.

In this situation, the SLGA’s “runner up” list will be used.

The list contains two proponents per available permit. It is only to be used if the initial proponent selected was ineligible or withdrew from the process.

SLGA will be notifying the runners up for Outlook, Rosetown and Melfort in the near future.

The runner up will still be required to proceed through SLGA’s permitting process including a formal application, paperwork, submitting and passing a good character check.
