SWED Cannabis Society, The Green Cross Society and VanCity Medicinal Society have all been denied a license by the City of Vancouver and lawyer Robert Laurie said he’s challenging that decision on behalf of the businesses.
While Laurie said he’s first challenging a technical error in the city’s paperwork, he’s prepared and expects to then bring about a constitutional challenge as part of his response to the injunction.
Laurie said the challenge will be filed under three sections.
“Section 2 is freedom of expression. Section 7 is security of the person, and section 15 is equality under the law,” Laurie said.
