“What C.R.A.P. propaganda
liberals have in fact been rising since last january 15 when they voted to end the prohibition on/of cannabis
The mainstream media is only now finally reporting that rise means its obviously a lot high than this figure
I know that is true among my circles of friends
The absolute only way trudeau could blow being ordained the next new leader/Prime Minister (even before 2015) as far too many skeletons are in harpers closet its bursting at the seams and may just quick start an election clock)
But the only way for him to blow it is if he turns into a hypocrite and ignores the 77% who approved the cannabis Resolution that sunday morning 10 AM Jan 15 and made OFFICIAL PARTY POLICY
He can only fail if he goes with that invented word decriminalization
It solves nothing and he gives away any shred of credibility he ever had with many
He himself smoked cannabis here in vancouver and it wasnt as a teenager
No the only way he is a friend of harper is if he caves and looks as ignorant as harper
In which case neither I nor anyone I can influence will vote for him and maybe then you would be correct
In the event that he does follow through and not use the Veto well the ndp will be a mere grease spot on the highway and of no concern at all wont they ?”

“Cannabis is a dead issue, it died when smoking a cigarette in a public park came under attack in major Canadian cities. Health and safety concerns trump personal liberty today and will for the foreseeable future. Doing anything regarding cannabis legislation is the same as putting a nutcase tattoo on your forehead politically.”

“the fact remains justin is breaking the promise to not interfere with nominations
and it should mean something to fair minded people
the party is doing much more than that as I the one person who has effected cannabis policy now in 4 mainstream national political partys was blocked from rewinning my local eda council seat and am treated as a pariah in the party now for taping justin at the ottawa convention as I had the policy approved yes with him admitting his own cannabis use and me wearing a pen camera
then for 9 months according to the party "blackmailing " him and the party with it
legally obtained video is not blackmail and I did ask if they wanted me to just release it as a youtube video to help them find their collective backbones

“Decrim doesn't exist..imagine alcohol only decrimed.
Legal to posses but illegal to produce or sell......... this is a misnomer and a ruse.
With all due respect its wrong.
This is the wrong way to go and still criminalizes the production of cannabis in reality.
I have worked for 22 years to legalize or regulate cannabis and this is plainly wrong and only takes the wind out of our sails to complete the work I have done in many political partys for many years.
It sounds to me like it was written by someone with a vested interest in keeping cannabis illegal....mostly.
Some one with a Comecashin-at Club probably...or as it says a lawyer who defends cannabis so callled criminals....he will still find plenty of business if this passes as decrim of possession of course does not consider supply and it leaves so called criminals producing it.
Comecashin-at Clubs hide beneath so called none profits regulations then not needing a business license they live very well at it and trips to china or amsterdam and living the high life trading products for cannabis makes sure no profit is ever made... if you catch my drift.
I know quite a few of these money makers or to me...as I say.... pimps of pot.
Bring us a referendum that says Regulate and drop the prohibition of cannabis and I will sign on.”
This is not true and as I was part of our Peace Keeping force I know better
You think what we just did in Libya is something to be proud of ??
What should really happen is my dream of the Common Sense Party and then with the ones I know of in the ndp, the liberals and the greens all get on board because it just makes sense then the remaining small shells of the hard core partisans wont matter one Iota !!!
I think our differences are far outweighed by our common ground
As I was part of all three and on all executives after in fact just winning my seat yesterday on my Liberal EDA executive ...I say that what you say is just plain wrong and totally discounts how many are actually just forward thinking progressives looking for fair and just government
Simple things like what this country used to be...a beacon of freedom to the entire world
To fairness and freedom and I for one think maybe we should kill both the liberals and the ndp and maybe then create the liberal democrats or as I say the common sense party
There is no way either could be doing anything like this with the harpercrites not a chance yet they could with each other if they just drop the obvious partisans who only see the small picture it seems
It could be quite workable

“Sorry, there are big differences between Libs and New Dems. You guys talk about a social concious and fairness, but said nothing when Martin slashed government spending that hurt working people and the poor, and stood by while Axworthy and his ilk made it harder for people who paid into EI to get, and said nothing when Chrtien let the Brofmans move 700 million dollars tax free to the US.
