Management Commentary

"Canada has established itself as the world leader in Cannabis legislation, and with legalization less than a week away we are extremely pleased with the rapid execution of our retail teams," said Norton Singhavon, Chairman and CEO of GTEC. "Once the doors to our first retail locations open in the coming weeks and months, we will have successfully executed our vision of becoming one of the few companies that have achieved full vertical integration, controlling the entire value-chain from seed to shelf. This methodical approach will allow us to deliver a quality end product to consumers while eliminating significant inefficiencies that exist in traditional supply chains."
