Port Moody – The topic of Cannabis production came before delegates at the annual Fire Chiefs’ of BC Conference last week in Victoria and, in particular, the personal production in residential buildings.
In their media release they noted: “Currently local governments have no legislative authority to inspect these properties for safety compliance”, says FCABC President Phil Lemire, “and with Cannabis soon to be regulated for sale in retail environments, there is no reason it should be grown in any residential buildings in BC.”
BC’s Fire Chiefs resolved to continue working towards prohibition of personal production of Cannabis in residential buildings.
The Fire Chiefs’ Association of British Columbia (FCABC) represents British Columbia’s fire service at all levels. The FCABC advocates for the fire service, works to improve fire protection for British Columbians and visitors, and provides mentorship and educational opportunities to its members, who represent over 300 fire departments in British Columbia.
The Fire Chiefs Communications Chair is Hope Fire Chief Tom DeSorcy, who is also a former Fraser Valley Broadcaster.
