The action alleges that the Bylaw violates his Section 8 rights with regards to his disability and legal use of medical cannabis to aid with his illness.

“If law is to protect and serve,” Wilcox said, “how can we justify inflammatory bullying by By-Law approaches to municipal law?”

Mr. Wilcox is not the first patient to file an action against bylaws of this nature; a similar bylaw action was launched by a Salmon Arm patient (James and Moynan v. City of Salmon Arm, 2009 BCHRT 285). The Human Rights tribunal ruled that Salmon Arms Bylaw did violate their Section 8 rights, but unlike Mr. Wilcox those litigants failed to file on behalf of the entire group of BC’s cannabis patients to have the bylaw amended in compliance with the BC Human Rights Code.

Wilcox hopes other patients who may have past or future concerns about their communities Controlled Substances By-Laws will come forward and contact him at [email protected]
