Greater Sudbury is working with Oraclepoll Research Ltd. to conduct a telephone survey about whether to allow cannabis retail stores in Greater Sudbury.
The survey will take place from Dec. 1-7, the city said in a news release. Residents will be randomly selected and contacted via landlines and cellphones. The survey will take from five to seven minutes to complete.
The survey is part of a series of opportunities for residents to provide feedback leading up to the Jan. 22, 2019, deadline when municipalities must choose to opt in or opt out of retail cannabis stores.
Since Nov. 13, the city has been collecting feedback via their online engagement portal, Over to You. To date, more than 10,000 responses have been received. Residents have until Nov. 30 to take part in the online survey.
All feedback received from the community, both online and via telephone, will be shared at the Dec. 11 city council meeting.
