With B.C. being the country leader of licensed producers, it is fitting that B.C. should become the market leader in lighting technology that supports this industry. British Columbia and Vancouver Island specifically could set the world industry standard for this exciting new exploding market, not only in product but in the tech infrastructure that supports the industry.
