In an interview with Jason Wilcox of Cannabis in Canada, Mark Hauk said he is being targeted.
“Saskatoon Police are going out of their way to intimidate local business owners into not conducting fundraisers for us.” Hauk said.
He also claims there has been an effort to permanently shut down his compassion club.
“I heard from our leasing agent today (Thursday) and the police have been putting pressure on them to get us out of the building,” Hauk said. “That’s my first-hand account but I wouldn’t repeat it if I didn’t think it to be very true.”
When asked if Saskatoon Police had approached any business owners or Hauk’s leasing agent, Public Affairs Director Alyson Edwards said she is “not aware of it and police are not making any further comments on the case.”
Hauk reopened the dispensary on Monday in an effort to help patients find new sources for their medicine.
Supporters have set up a fundraiser to help Saskatchewan Compassion Club patients.
