Cannabis Act

Cannabis in Saint-Lazare: where is it prohibited?

SAINT-LAZARE (Quebec), Tuesday, October 9, 2018 – The legalization of cannabis, which comes into force on Wednesday, October 17, 2018, raises questions and concerns. In an effort to clarify certain aspects of the Act, the Town of Saint-Lazare wishes to specify the locations where cannabis use is prohibited.

This provincial law provides a framework for the possession and use of cannabis in public places notably by prohibiting the smoking of cannabis everywhere that smoking tobacco or vaping is already prohibited. Smoking cannabis will therefore be prohibited in any public place, most notably, but not limited to:  

  • municipal parks, including nature parks, La Pinière, school parks, skate parks; bike paths, recreational trails, athletic tracks; outdoor pools, playgrounds for children, including water games;  sports fields including tennis, pickleball and basketball courts as well as soccer, football and softball fields; day camp fields, skating rinks and ice rings, for example;  
  • during activities, holidays, events and municipal gatherings; and, in general,
  • less than 9 metres from public buildings;
  • at all times on the lots of:
    • child care centres and daycares;
    • educational institutions:
      • preschools;
      • elementary schools;
      • secondary schools, including adult education centres and vocational training centres.
  • on the terraces of restaurants and bars;
  • common areas of residential buildings with 2 to 3 units.

The Town has been informed that no cannabis point of sale is expected in Saint-Lazare at this time. As such, the town will not be affected from a commercial perspective for the time being.

In a context other than personal usage, regulations pertaining to the cultivation and transformation of cannabis are those stipulated in the agricultural and industrial zoning by-law. Sanctions for violations are those currently provided for.

The Town of Saint-Lazare invites residents to visit both federal and provincial websites here www.canada.ca/cannabis and https://encadrementcannabis.gouv.qc.ca/en/.

Lyme disease

Results of the 2017 surveillance activities in Saint-Lazare

Saint-Lazare (Quebec), Tuesday, May 8, 2018 –  During the 2017 summer season, a team composed of students from Université de Montréal’s faculty of veterinary medicine collected ticks from Parc nature Les-Forestiers-de Saint-Lazare as part of the Institut national de santé publique’s Lyme disease surveillance activities.

Ticks were collected using a flanel (a piece of white fabric tied to a stick) and the collected ticks were sent to the Laboratoire de santé publique du Québec (LSPQ of the INSPQ) for identification. Following this, ticks belonging to the Ixodes scapularis species (carriers of Lyme disease) were sent to the Public Health Agency of Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg for detection, most notably of the Borrelia burgdorferi pathogen.

The Town of Saint-Lazare wishes to inform its residents that no ticks of the Ixodes scapularis species (carriers of Lyme disease) were collected from our park. Regardless, the Town continues to recommend that citizens adhere to the following public health guidelines: http://sante.gouv.qc.ca/problemes-de-sante/maladie-de-lyme/.
