Hometowns Call for Share of Cannabis Excise Tax

June 13, 2019

Saskatchewan hometowns are calling on the provincial government to meet federal expectations and recognize the responsibilities municipalities have in cannabis legalization by sharing a portion of cannabis excise tax revenues.

In the last month, nearly 50 Saskatchewan hometowns have sent a letter to Saskatchewan’s Minister of Finance recognizing that municipalities value a respectful, government-to-government relationship between provincial and local governments, and that sharing cannabis excise tax revenues honours that relationship and acknowledges the responsibilities hometowns have in legalization.
