PENTICTON – A proposed large-scale, state of the art medical cannabis growing facility could provide a huge economic injection to the South Okanagan economy. Sunniva, Inc. chief executive officer Dr. Tony Holler says the company is proposing to build a 700,000 square foot, high technology greenhouse facility to grow pharmaceutical grade cannabis near Oliver. He says there is still lots of work to do, but the company is in negotiations with the Osoyoos Indian Band on a lease of 39 acres within the Senkulmen Industrial Park north of Oliver. The company has financial proposals to finish and a final review of the project with Health Canada, but Holler says he hopes to break ground in late March. Holler says the facility will provide a “significant economic return” to the area through the hiring of 200 skilled positions to operate the facility.
