“We’re still living the dream, it’s just the purgatory dream,” said Jennawae Cavion, the co-founder of Kingston, Ont., cannabis store chain Calyx + Trichomes.
Over the last five years, she’s seen Ontario flip-flop on the store licensing process, faced rivals trying to steal business by opening nearby and survived six weeks of shipping delays after a cyberattack at Ontario’s cannabis distributor.
