The Mussett family’s business, Sky High Cannabis Ltd., has set up shop on Second Avenue, just south of Winnipeg Street. Owner Tristan Mussett heads the business with his spouse Aimee Mussett, and their children Linley and Matt. The entrepreneurs gave The Chief a brief tour of Sky High on April 19, which was the day after the store opened.
