Premier Kathleen Wynne says she has asked Ontario’s cannabis stores to go back and consult with school boards after three of the four in communities where initial shops will open say they had no input. “I have been told that, as far as we know, school boards were not officially consulted, that there was some sort of online process that they could take part in but there hasn’t been an official conversation with school boards,” Wynne told reporters Monday morning. “So I’ve asked our folks to go back and to determine how to fill that gap, because I think it’s very important that school boards, not just municipalities, because school boards know, for example, where their kids go at lunchtime. “And so it’s very important that school boards are consulted. And so we’re going to make sure that happens,” said Wynne, who began her political career as a trustee with the Toronto District School Board.
