WINNIPEG -- Residents in the town of Altona will have the chance to weigh in on whether cannabis retailers should be allowed to set up shop in town.

A plebiscite has been set for May 13, 2020 asking "Should license retail cannabis stores be allowed in Altona?"

This comes after a petition calling for the plebiscite was submitted to the town council in late February.

To vote, residents must be at least 18-years-old, be a Canadian citizen, and be a resident of Altona for at least six months or the registered owner of property in Altona for at least six months prior to voting day.
