It’s no joke: Ex-health minister George Smitherman, a retired deputy chief of Toronto police, and a Markham druggist are applying to open a medical marijuana facility in Durham Region.
The trio — a veritable dream team in the medical marijuana industry — secured a property in Durham Region with about 16,000 square feet of serviceable indoor growing space, said Smitherman, and is in the midst of preparing an application. The township of Uxbridge recently passed a motion granting them a “no objection” letter to accompany their application to Health Canada. (There is no truth to the rumour they are hiring Justin Trudeau as a consultant!)
With house prices in Vancouver approaching one million a pop, if you’ve dreamed about retiring to Vancouver Island on the cheap, now’s your chance.

The City of Langford is giving away seven homes — for free.
imageBut there’s a catch: the homes’ new owners will have to find someplace else to put the 1970s-era properties.
The city purchased the homes to complete the Leigh Road Interchange Project which opened to traffic last year, and city officials would rather see the properties reused than demolished.
“Houses on the blocks were in the path of the road, others weren’t but they were too close to the road,” Matthew Baldwin, Langford’s director of planning, told CTV Vancouver. “Council has re-zoned it for a business park so the homes can’t stay.”
Baldwin says the city is accepting offers on a first-come first-serve basis, and is asking the new owners to move the properties themselves.

Portland water officials are discarding 38 million gallons of drinking water after a 19-year-old was caught urinating into one of the city’s reservoirs.
A security camera caught the man urinating at about 1 a.m. PT Wednesday through an iron fence into ***** ******** Reservoir No. 5 in southeastern **********, said Administrator David Shaff of the ******** Water Bureau. Minutes later, two other men, ages 18 and 19, attempted to scale the fence and one of them entered the reservoir.
“Our customers have an expectation that their water is not deliberately contaminated,” said Shaff while acknowledging that the health risk is slight. “We have the ability to meet that expectation while minimizing public health concerns.”
The three men were caught, cited for trespassing and prohibited from returning to the Park.
The 19-year-old also was cited for public urination. Their names and the reason for the incident were not immediately made available.
Police are reviewing surveillance video to determine if they should press additional charges.

On Tuesday night, the star of TV’s Orphan Black was asked by O’Brien about a recent CBC News article identifying Regina as Canada’s second-most zombie-proof city (after St. John’s) in Canada. Why Regina? O’Brien asked. Maslany replied it was likely because of the weather. “It’s freezing, freezing cold,” she said. “I would assume … even zombies couldn’t operate in those conditions.” tatiana-maslany-interviewed-by-conan-o-brien
