Customers raise concerns over 'excessive' legal cannabis packaging

Customers raise concerns over 'excessive' legal cannabis packagingSome buyers are complaining the bulky packaging for newly legalized cannabis is environmentally unfriendly, but producers say government guidelines are to blame. Greg MacLean, who bought marijuana from the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation last week, says he was shocked to see how much packaging was used for four grams: two plastic containers, two cardboard boxes, and clear plastic casing, all enclosed in a brown paper bag. The 37-year-old medical user says the packaging is overkill, and he never saw this amount of packaging when he ordered online from dispensaries.

Trudeau, McKenna to announce compensation for federal carbon planCanadians will soon find out exactly how they will be compensated for the upcoming federal carbon tax.

Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur waives right to preliminary hearing

Alleged serial killer Bruce McArthur waives right to preliminary hearingAlleged serial killer Bruce McArthur was ordered Monday to stand trial on eight counts of first-degree murder after he waived his right to a preliminary hearing in a rare legal move. The 67-year-old self-employed landscaper, who is accused of killing eight men with ties to Toronto's gay village, shuffled to the prisoner's box in a packed Toronto courtroom, his head bowed and avoiding eye contact with the family members of his alleged victims. Looking significantly different from when he was arrested in January — having lost weight, shaved his goatee and cropped his hair short — McArthur said nothing while his lawyer, James Miglin, confirmed his client's agreement to skip the preliminary inquiry.
