Alcohol & Gaming Seminar: Be There!
While much attention remains focused on the legalization of cannabis, let’s not forget that any substance that impairs an individual and put others at risk remains an important public safety concern for Ontario’s police leaders. That’s why participation at the OACP’s 10th Annual Alcohol & Gaming Seminar on November 26, is vital.
While we will continue to focus on all substances that put people in danger, this year’s seminar will pay special attention to cannabis legalization and its implications for police personnel and communities. The seminar will be held at the Toronto Police College, 70 Birmingham Street, Toronto. Speakers include:
- James Palangio and Michael Townsend of the Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General will be discussing the new alcohol and cannabis impaired driving offences as well as offences related to cannabis in vehicles;
- Representatives from the Ontario Cannabis Legalization Secretariat will speak about the enforcement tools for police officers and the retail framework for cannabis;
- Elizabeth Yeigh, Director of Strategic Engagement with the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) will speak about the role of the AGCO in the wake of cannabis legalization; and
- Mark Lambert, an Inspector with the AGCO, will join PC Kyle Mask of the Ontario Provincial Police in reviewing a case study involving a double fatality and the investigation into Shooters Bar and Grill.
The cost for this seminar is $125 + HST and it includes lunch and refreshments. To register. Click here.
