That's not 'profit margin', that's just putting places out of business if you can only sell something for 8% over cost.
No, that's not profit, that's margin.

Maybe they're that stupid or maybe it's just more Pot is "legal" now bullshit. Like how in the US you can be in the pot business, but no one is allowed to do business with you.

Not So Fast, Canuckistan
TORONTO -- Shifting statements from U.S. border officials have prompted some Canadian cannabis industry players to think twice about travelling south of the border, just weeks before a significant pot industry conference in Las Vegas.

A spokeswoman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection said that even if a Canadian traveller's business does not operate in the U.S., they could be denied entry if their travel activities are cannabis-related.

"If the purpose of travel is unrelated to the marijuana industry such as a vacation, shopping trip, visit to relatives, they will generally be admissible to the U.S. however if they are coming for reasons related to the industry, such as the conference... they may be found inadmissible," said Stephanie Malin, U.S. CBP's branch chief for northern/coastal regions in an email.

On Oct. 17, Canada became the second country in the world after Uruguay to legalize cannabis for recreational use.

In the lead up to legalization, a statement in September by U.S. border officials had indicated that Canadian pot industry workers risked being banned or denied entry. Earlier this month, U.S. CBP updated its statement, saying that Canadian cannabis industry workers would "generally be admissible" if travelling for leisure.

The revised stance was welcomed by the sector, but did not offer clarity as to whether business travel activities for those without direct U.S. involvement would be a red flag under its policies as well.

Now Asian Countries are Warning their Citizens about 'Sinister Drug Pushers From Across the Pacific'
The letter published by the consulate went on to warn that Chinese citizens living in Canada who break cannabis laws — by selling pot to a minor, for example — could end up with a criminal record and face deportation.

China’s statement comes after the Japanese consulates in Vancouver and Toronto released statements earlier this month explaining that Japan’s Cannabis Control Act, which forbids all possession and use of cannabis, may apply to Japanese citizens anywhere in the world. The consulates warned that those who consume any form of weed in Canada could be subject to legal penalties upon returning to Japan.

According to the Province of Saskatchewan, he is not the Assman.
When it comes to celebrating his family name, Dave Assman refuses to take no for an answer.

After Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) denied his latest request for an ‘ASSMAN’ vanity licence plate, the Melville man had an oversized decal designed to replicate the plate in question and then placed the decal on the tailgate of his white Dodge Ram pickup truck.

Assman — pronounced OSS-men — said he appealed SGI’s decision on Tuesday and received a message around four hours later that his request had once again been rejected. Then the railroad worker took action.
Image
SGI, like all provincial authorities responsible for vanity plates, refuses any application that has even a whiff of sexuality, drug references, politics or religion. Its list of rejected vanity plates runs to 85 pages.

That's been a running story here for the last few days. Most people are on Mr. Assman's side.

From a BBC story about this:
The spurned ex-minister: Jody Wilson-Raybould was Canada's attorney general and justice minister. Unlike in the UK and US, the two roles are held by the same person.
Uh... the US has a justice minister?

I think the BBC article means that the AG and Minister for Justice are normally 2 different people, which is usually the case in Canada, but Trudeau gave her both portfolios.

Trudeau has two major assets: 1) Andrew Scheer, the leader of the Conservative Party, who is a nobody-wanna-be-Rubio. Scheer is obnoxious and stupid. 2) Jagmeet Singh, the leader of the NDP, who has managed to alienate all sides of his party (and finally got a seat in parliament just this week). Singh is going to destroy the NDP, who will lose a lot of seats to the Liberals, thus keeping Trudeau in power.

Also, the Liberal Party and the CBC will rally round Trudeau by October 21 (Election day).

They pop up every now and then. They had a candidate in a recent by-election on Vancouver Island last month. (Not my constituency, so I couldn't vote.)

The most likely date for our next election falls on the Jewish Holiday of Sukkot. Also, the advance polling days fall on the Jewish sabbath. For Orthodox Jews, this means they cannot vote without violating their faith.

B'nai Brith and a couple of Conservative Party political candidates have asked the Chief Electoral Officer to move the election date by one week. (This is not unprecedented.) I am somewhat sympathetic in that the change is minor and not really disruptive as well as removing a barrier for a segment of the population. OTOH, I dislike the notion of any change to the political process for religious reasons.

For background: The Elections Act specifies that Canadian Elections must happen no later than the Monday after the four year anniversary of the last general election, unless an earlier election is forced because the governing party loses a Confidence Vote in Parliament. (Before the Elections Act was changed, the Prime Minister could pick and choose when to hold an election anytime within five years after the last election. This gave the governing party the upper hand in selecting an election date that would favor them. (Up in the polls, blunder by the opposition party, etc.)

It also made for extremely short campaign seasons. I really seethed with envy over that. :mrgreen:
Our election cycle is pushing two years now (which means US Reps are in contentious campaign, read: fund raising, mode).

Colorado's mail-in-ballot system where you can effectively vote any time within a four week period keeps looking better.
