TORONTO (September 13, 2018) – The marijuana industry is already the most fascinating and fractious new sector to hit Canada in decades – and the product has yet to be legalized. As pot goes from the back alleys and medical dispensaries to government websites and neighbourhood stores, BNN Bloomberg launches its most comprehensive editorial series to date: Cannabis Canada, beginning tomorrow (Friday, Sept. 14), and running for several weeks after the official legalization date of Wednesday, Oct. 17. The in-depth series delves into all the hot-button issues facing the pot industry and its investors: from sky-high stock values and worldwide attention to fast-changing regulations and excitable consumers. Every day across its television, digital, and radio platforms, BNN Bloomberg presents never-before-seen stories and must-see interviews utilizing the unmatched combined reporting power of its anchors, reporters, and partners at Bloomberg News. Veteran BNN Bloomberg journalists Andrew Bell, Jameson Berkow, David George-Cosh, and Tara Weber – and Bloomberg News reporters led by Kristine Owram and Jen Skerritt – have been entrenched in the marijuana story for months and bring fresh angles from cities and towns across the country. As part of Cannabis Canada, BNN Bloomberg delivers:
  • A new, free, limited-time Cannabis Canada e-mail newsletter beginning Monday, Oct. 1, offering a daily rundown of original reports, video interviews, breaking news and stock prices
  • On-the-ground and in-studio interviews with top marijuana industry CEOs as they prepare for legalization and are hit with their first real consumer demand
  • A daily marijuana business radio report available on BNN Bloomberg 1410 in Vancouver and on other iHeartRadio Canada talk stations
All of BNN Bloomberg’s dedicated Cannabis Canada coverage is available on, the BNN Bloomberg app, and the dedicated landing page at
