Event description

Description

Join IPAC Vancouver in launching “Policy and Pint” – a new, interactive series engaging important discussions, questions and debates on public policy and hot topics impacting Canadian and international public administration and government relations.

The evening will feature engaging dialogue, networking, $5.50 pints and 20% food discount!

The first feature discussion is on recreational cannabis being legalized in Canada by July 2018. While the federal legislation proposed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government will regulate cannabis production, the details of who can sell it and who can buy it will be largely left up to the country’s provinces. As time progresses, more and more questions are arising and the answers are still evolving.

  • How will Canada and individual provinces model the cannabis industry?
  • What are the highs and lows of the Cannabis Act?
  • How will cannabis impact British Columbia economically, culturally and politically?
