Rural Enderby director Jackie Pearase wants better clarity over medical marijuana zoning and regulation.
In an attempt to provide this, the Regional District of North Okanagan is recommending amending the zoning bylaw to allow medical marijuana production outfits in specific areas such as those zoned for industrial, those zoned for home occupation as well as on properties in the Agricultural Land Reserve. Rural properties outside of the ALR, however, over one hectare would be allowed such an operation provided they meet the requirements. The amended bylaw would include properties zoned country residential, as many parcels in Area F are.

The nomination list is long for the Splatsin Band Chief and council election this January.
A total of 36 names were put forward for councillor at the nomination meeting last week, and four names for Chief including current Chief (Kukpi7) Wayne Christian, Crystal Johnson, Lawrence Lee and Stuart Lee.
The lengthy list wasn’t a surprise to Christian, however, who’s served as Chief for four consecutive two year terms, as well as an additional reign from 1979 to 1987 and from 1977 to 1979 as a councillor. He says he never knows what to expect.
