My civil and constitutional rights have been compromised by DPPL licences handed out by Health Canada with no regard to my rights to my health, security, and protection of my assets.
Health Canada has issued three DPPL licences allowing a "contractor" to operate a growing medical marijuana business for profit next door in a R1-A zoned neighbourhood. Health Canada issued these licences despite the fact they contradict multiple Chilliwack zoning and business bylaws as well as the National Building Code of Canada standards, electri-cal inspections and B.C. fire codes. We have lost:
1-Our right to clean air free from noxious odors - the grow op is detectable 400 feet down the street;
2-Our right to reasonable safety and security as we are now open to a high risk of "grow rips and home invasions;"
3-Our right to the standards set forth in the City of Chilliwack's zoning bylaws which are "trumped and unenforceable" by Health Canada's lawless licensing;
4-Our right to recourse and reimbursement from damages resulting from an uninsured and un-inspected business now operating beside us;
5-Our right to a reasonable expectation of our home's value, which has plummeted. Would you buy beside a marijuana grow operation?; and
6-Our right to insure our home-which is now un-insurable considering the physical risks next door.
Does anyone care?
