The plan for a cannabis company in Spallumcheen is creating lots of interest from nearby residents.
SunPure Industries is in the late stages of obtaining a license to produce, process and sell medical cannabis on Powerhouse Road.
“It’s about 12 thousand 600 square feet. There’s three greenhouses. They’re planning on starting off with 20 employees,” says Mayor Janice Brown.
Brown says there were lots of questions from the 60 people who came to hear the company’s president.
“We did open up question period. Of course there was the concerns on odour, traffic on Powerhouse Road, and the look of the facility.”
Brown says Sun Pure just wants to fit in with the community and guarantees it is committed to the community.
