The city has yet to tell its police officers, firefighters and paramedics what the rules are for off-hours consumption of cannabis with only a week to go before legalization is a reality.
Sources with civic unions representing Winnipeg emergency workers told the Free Press the city has only recently begun discussing cannabis-use policies for their personnel.
Currently, all civic employees are governed by the city's alcohol and drug policy. That policy is being revised by the city's human resources department, according to Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service Chief John Lane.
However, it remains unclear if the policy will be updated prior to Oct. 17, the day recreational cannabis is legalized across the country.
