Event description

Description

Cannabis is set to be legally available across Canada on October 17th. Legalization will address many of the short-comings of the current policy framework, but will in turn create a series of new challenges.

These challenges will stretch across multiple levels of government and will impact numerous policy areas including health, social and economic policy, public safety, criminal justice, enforcement, taxation and Indigenous self-government. Many of these challenges will force decision-makers to make important trade-offs between policy priorities.

Will the policies that Canada’s governments have proposed adequately balance these trade-offs? How will we know what is working and what isn’t? What will we need to keep an eye on?Join us on October 18th for a lively panel discussion and Q&A on these topics.



PANELISTS

The Honourable Tony Dean
Senate of Canada

Jean-François Crépault
Centre for Addiction and Mental Health

Rolanda Elijah
Chippewas of the Thames First Nation

Akwasi Owusu-Bempah
University of Toronto
