During the time that I've followed municipal politics, I have not seen a more devoted individual than Chris Harper when it comes to his community.
If there was one individual who deserves the extra 87 votes, it would be Chris.

So marijuana came to be demonized in the same way as cocaine and heroin. Now organized crime took over and production increased and over the years so did the concentration of the products. It was much easier to transport, deliver and conceal concentrated drugs such as heroin and cocaine. Over the years a great deal of energy has been invested in "product development".

No one would have invested the time and energy to cultivate so many strains without a market.

People ask "What you will do for me if elected Mayor?"

Ward 6 has a unique list of Candidates. We have not one but two incumbents running for Council.
The current one is Mr. Pootmans. His voting record and recent public statements make him an out and out Social Engineer who wants to bulldoze our city and have everyone walk everywhere. He will have better luck getting Americans to give up their guns. He is also advocating for $10.2 Billion in debt to finance his vision of a Social Utopia.
