Pot shops are the most dangerous issue Victoria has ever faced. They are illegal and can destroy Victoria’s downtown and tourism. Yet our news media is mute. Are they afraid of the bikers who supply them or afraid to offend Mayor Helps?
The City of Victoria is preparing to license stores to break federal law, to endanger its citizens and to knowingly license admitted criminals to run businesses. We are suing the city for an injunction to enjoin it from its illegal and reckless actions. This blog lays out and explains the basis of our lawsuit.
The city is supposed to look out for our best interests. Instead, it thinks it can pass regulations forbidding something bad from being bad. It’s ignorant, and it’s bad governance.
Any contract that requires a party thereto to break the law is not a valid contract. And no court will enforce it, not even BC’s liberal courts.
This is not just alarmist talk. Gang wars will happen. The only question is, “How badly will they hurt Victoria?
