Light and odour from cannabis operations sparks dialogue at Welland council

Welland council is examining an approach being taken by Hamilton’s municipal government to reduce light and odour pollution from cannabis grow operations, but staff is advising that the federal government and Health Canada should be taking the lead on addressing concerns from residents.

A bylaw recently adopted by Hamilton was on Tuesday’s agenda in Welland and was received for information. The purpose of the bylaw is to reduce cannabis production facilities from affecting nearby residents.

It reads that no person shall “cause, create, or permit” light and odours from cannabis operations to become a nuisance.

Travers Fitzpatrick, general manager of infrastructure and development for the City of Welland, said at Tuesday’s council meeting that enforcing and regulating these issues is up to the country’s highest level of government.
