Flying high: YVRs guide to travelling with pot
Consumption of recreational cannabis will be prohibited on all Edmonton International Airport property, including buildings, roads and parking lots.

The RCMP will monitor and enforce passenger and employee compliance, the airport said in a release Thursday.

New construction, particularly in the Leduc and Nisku areas of the city, has been burgeoning amid the addition of a 74,322 square metre (800,000 square foot) medical marijuana production facility and a 37,161 square metre (400,000 square foot) auto parts and distribution warehouse from Ford Canada.

As of Oct.17, when recreational cannabis becomes legal in Canada, travellers will be entitled to transport up to 30 grams of cannabis in carry-on or checked luggage within Canada.

Prices for commercial real estate in the southern B.C. city are anticipated to see an uptick, as approval for cannabis retail licences will be “extremely competitive” amid high demand once the substance becomes available.

Thursday's news release about the cannabis consumption policy included an airport map, below. Cannabis consumption will not be allowed on roads, buildings and parking lots highlighted in orange.

“Cannabis is adding an additional demand segment to the overall market, for industrial or retail,” said Elton Ash, regional executive vice-president at RE/MAX of Western Canada on Wednesday.

To encourage thoughtful and respectful conversations, first and last names will appear with each submission to CBC/Radio-Canada's online communities (except in children and youth-oriented communities). Pseudonyms will no longer be permitted.

Meanwhile, it is anticipated that vacancy rates will continue to drop and lease rates will rise moderately for the remainder of the year in Edmonton thanks to the arrival of Aurora Cannabis.

It is a priority for CBC to create a website that is accessible to all Canadians including people with visual, hearing, motor and cognitive challenges.

Less than a week ahead of legalization, the Vancouver International Airport published a guide for those whove considered flying high.

Real estate firm RE/Max Commercial says that Kelowna, B.C., and Edmonton are both expected to see positive commercial growth in the coming months as a result of cannabis legalization.

Recreational cannabis will be legal across Canada starting Oct. 17, but the rules regarding travel may be hazy for some. So staff at YVR are trying to clear things up, though they warn passengers it is up to them to review the rules before packing pot.

"It is the responsibility of those passing through YVR to understand and adhere to all applicable local, provincial, federal and international regulations regarding the carriage and possession of cannabis," the airport said in a statement issued Thursday.

TORONTO – Two cities in Western Canada have been named the next commercial real estate “hot spots” for the cannabis market, according to a report.

Yes. Cannabis smoking and vaping is permitted at YVR, but only in designated areas. The interior of the airport will remain smoke- and vape-free, but both are allowed outside the terminal in marked sections.  

It is legal for adults to travel within Canada with cannabis, the airport says, but laws differ province to province. Travellers should be wary of the legal age, as well as where they can legally purchase and consume cannabis products.

It is illegal to cross any international borders with pot, even if youre going somewhere where cannabis is legal.

You also cant bring cannabis into Canada from other countries, and you cant bring it through customs while still technically on Canadian soil.

"Keep in mind that YVR is also a pre-clearance airport, meaning on most U.S. flights, you clear customs and are considered to be in the U.S. before boarding your flight," the airport warned.  

"Please help us spread the word. This change is significant and, to avoid confusion, we recommend passengers do their research before setting out for the airport," the YVR guide said.
