CAN (BC): Grower says city holding up expansions

Dan Sutton said delays at city hall could cost his Maple Ridge cannabis operation revenue.

Sutton is the CEO of Tantalus Labs, which operates a Whonnock-based greenhouse. The company is planning to expand from a single greenhouse of 75,000 square feet to two with a total of 120,000 square feet.

Sutton said that was always the plan, outlined to city hall. The operation has been built in three phases, with the third phase being a second greenhouse. “In 2013 the city was excited to have us. They helped us select the site.”

Former public works manager Frank Quinn advised council on April 2 that neighbours have complained about light, noise and occasional odours from the greenhouses, and the city has asked Tantalus to address those concerns. Council decided at that meeting to ask for a legal opinion before approving the expansion.
