POT CAFE COMING SOON: FELGER
Well-known Abbotsford marijuana activist Tim Felger says he has a business licence for a building on Essendene Avenue downtown Abbotsford. The City of Abbotsford says he doesn't.
But Felger says he'll have his political office/bookstore up and running no matter what.
"I have a business licence for a bookstore and political office . . . I'll be doing business as Da Kine," Felger said, in reference to the notorious marijuana caf, in East Vancouver.
He says he has permission to franchise the store and use its name.
City of Abbotsford spokesman Jay Teichroeb said what Felger likely thinks is a business licence is probably a receipt he would have received for his licence application.
"If Tim wants to do it right and comply with all the bylaws and the parametres of the C-7 zoning, then he's welcome," Abbotsford Downtown Business Association president Bob Bos said. "If not, then the city won't let him."
Felger says he does intend to sell marijuana from the Abbotsford Da Kine, but after municipal elections.
