  • 4. Scarborough--Agincourt (Ontario) The flyer refers to a Liberal party resolution stating marijuana should be legalized because current enforcement policy “is not working.” Resources spent on enforcement haven’t stopped young people from getting access to the drug, so the party believes it’s best to focus resources on regulation and education, as is done with tobacco, to try to discourage marijuana use, said Chan, a lawyer. Sales of marijuana to young people would still be illegal, as would trafficking, under the Liberal plan. “This is about taking the criminal element out” of the marijuana business, said Chan, insisting he would not encourage people to smoke marijuana, a drug with “serious health repercussions.” Jun 19, 2014 - “Former MP Karygiannis says Conservatives have misrepresented his views on the Liberal Party in campaign flyer: Justin Trudeau’s position on legalizing marijuana highlighted in Scarborough-Agincourt federal byelection” By Mike Adler - Scarborough Mirror http://www.insidetoronto.com/news-story/4589982-former-mp-karygiannis-says-conservatives-have-misrepresented- http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca his-views-on-the-liberal-party-in-campa/ Official Party Stance: Liberals understand the need to consider ending the prohibition of marijuana and addressing the root causes of crime to see real results. http://www.liberal.ca/getting-smart-on-crime-and-cannabis/ Arnold Chan, MP Liberal Party of Canada (416) 321-5454 arnold@liberal.ca arnoldchan.liberal.ca twitter.com/ArnoldChanMP facebook.com/votearnoldchan

Canadians are not tricked.

  • 11. Hamilton Centre (Ontario) “The federal NDP has long advocated for the decriminalization of marijuana. We are the only part that actually has a resolution and a policy for decriminalization. And, in advocating that position, we understand that we need a drug policy that does not primarily rely only on our legal system. We want Canada to build a workable policy on marijuana that recognizes the failure of criminalizing people for their personal use. ... The NDP continues to push the federal government to take steps to move marijuana out of the criminal legal framework, and eliminate punitive measures for responsible adult marijuana use. We believe that we must move forward to a discussion on the best system of rules based on public health education. This includes establishing guidelines about age and impaired driving and rules to tackle commercial grow-ops.” Posted 09 January 2006 - 04:22 PM - “Interview with NDP MP David Christopherson” Matt Jelly, Mayday Magazine - (Source link unavailable) http://forums.cannabisculture.com/forums/index.php?/topic/120571-interview-with-ndp-mp-david-christopherson/ Official Party Stance: 3.1h Adopting a harm reduction approach to substance abuse and permitting the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. 3.9i Decriminalizing marijuana possession with the goal of removing it’s production and distribution from the control of organized crime. http://xfer.ndp. ca/2012/2012-12-17-Email-Convention/Mtl2013_PolicyBook_E.pdf ‘Montreal 2013 NDP http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca David Christopherson, MP New Democratic Party of Canada (905) 526-0770 david.christopherson@parl.gc.ca davidchristopherson.ndp.ca facebook.com/DavidChristophersonNDP

  • 13. St. John's South—Mount Pearl (Newfoundland and Labrador) "I feel no one should go to jail for possessing a couple of joints. I said exactly that when I stood on the floor of the House of Commons and spoke about the omnibus crime bill," he said. "The Harper administration is imposing mandatory minimum sentences for as few as six pot plants. I don't agree with that at all." Cleary said he can't remember the last time he went to a social gathering where there wasn't someone inside or outside smoking pot. "It is part of our society now," he said. "Decriminalization all the way. I am not for outright legalization at this point - one step at a time." Saturday, April 28, 2012 - “Most N.L.
