Bonify senior managers fired

Bonify, a Winnipeg cannabis company, fired several high-ranking employees after an investigation into the recall of their products.

Starting October 17th marijuana is legal to grow, sell and to buy throughout Canada. It doesn’t matter if you are using it or not, cannabis is coming, it is already here and as of today, it is sold in your local stores and online.

Manitoba regulators confiscated all cannabis products provided by the company from Winnipeg, which was sent to licensed retail stores.

The management of Liquor, the Gaming, and Cannabis Authority of Manitoba and the Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Corporation state that the sale of all cannabis products produced by Bonify has been suspended due to quality control problems.

Health Canada expanded its initial recall of Bonify cannabis products on Monday, to include 14 additional lots. Almost 5,900 units of these products have been sold, said Health Canada, in two Saskatchewan stores and throughout Manitoba.

Last week Health Canada published a review of two varieties of Bonify cannabis products, which were sold in three Saskatchewan stores.

The lots include products named Critical+, White Widow, Sensi Star, White Berry, Wappa and CBD Shark Shock. To date, no complaints have been received related to the recalled lots. Neither Health Canada nor Bonify has received any adverse reports for the recalled cannabis product.

George Robinson, CEO of RavenQuest, said at a press conference that they do not know the source of the cannabis, which was seized.

 “Eight of the recalled lots also have a labeling error, in which the content of cannabinoids is interchanged,” the recall statement says.

After the initial recall was announced, the Prime Minister of Manitoba, Brian Pallister, said that his government took urgent steps to remove all products from the warehouses, but expressed concern about how the Canadian Health Ministry did not cope with the communication.

Pallister said the federal government had known about the problem for a week and a half, without notifying its office. He said the government cannot protect cannabis consumers unless the federal government shares information.

For those of you, who purchased Bonify and other marijuana products that are under recall, it is recommended to return it to the store it was purchased from and get another brand, which is checked and certified. Such measures are for the customer’s safety and to ensure that each pot product is legal and safe to consume.

Our Go204 team decided to visit one of the legal stores and see for ourselves the new kind of stores in Canada. Delta 9 Cannabis is still seeing lines of customers outside the doors two months after legalization.

Winnipeg Residential Water And Waste Fees
The City of Winnipeg is in the process of debating an increase to water and waste rates. To understand the impact this potential increase could have, it’s important to look at a few factors. First, we will analyze how these fees are structured and what they fund. Then, we will look at why an increase is being proposed in the first place. Finally, it will be helpful to compare our fees to the fees in other Canadian cities, though this can be trickier than y...
