A number of the witnesses who came here even said that prisons could be places for encouraging organized crime. An inmate who gets out of prison has friends, telephone numbers and sources. They know everything. They get encouragement from other criminals. Why then do we not get them out of that place and get them involved in programs, set them on the right path, tell them that they have to reinvest in society, go out to work and pay their taxes? That will all come back to Canadians and be good for Canada. That is how we are going to solve the problem of drugs and organized crime, the problem of trafficking in drugs like marijuana.” November 23rd, 2011 / 8:20 p.m. - “Justice Committee on Nov. 23rd, 2011” OpenParliament.ca http://openparliament.ca/committees/justice/41-1/15/charmaine-borg-1/ 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 Policy Charmaine Borg, MP New Democratic Party (450) 964-9417 charmaine.borg@parl.gc.ca charmaineborg.info twitter.com/mpcharmaineborg facebook.com/pages/Charmaine-Borg/232241296787950 youtube.com/charmaineborgnpd

  17. 17. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca "... Criminal provisions that are too broad generally have the opposite effect to what was intended and, as a result, it is no longer possible to enforce a decision or a law. Under the Conservatives, we have become accustomed to this sort of thing, whether it was with Bill C-10, which criminalizes the possession of more than six marijuana plants, or with Bill C-36, which criminalizes the purchase of sexual services. The consequence is that the tougher the criminal sentences we impose through these laws, the less viable it becomes to implement them, and therefore the police are much less likely to enforce them.” March 12th, 2015 / 5:20 p.m. - “Zero Tolerance for Barbaric Cultural Practices Act: Government Orders” OpenParliament.ca https://openparliament.ca/debates/2015/3/12/tarik-brahmi-1/ 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 PolicyTarik Brahmi, MP New Democratic Party (450) 357-9100 (seulement la communication française) Tarik.Brahmi@parl.gc.ca tarikbrahmi.ndp.ca twitter.com/TarikBrahmi facebook.com/tarikbrahminpdstjean Saint-Jean (Quebec) WILL NOT BE SEEKING RE- ELECTION

As for himself, Brison said he too has smoked pot in the past and “I did inhale.” But he said, “it’s been a very long time” — indeed, before he became an MP in 1997 — since he last toked up.

I dont want to encourage the use of drugs amongst youth but I feel cannabis does not pose the same dangers as other more serious drugs. I am particularly interested in the proposal put forth by the Chief of Police Association on decriminalization. I put a lot of weight into the opinions of law enforcement on this issue. I worry it is a misuse of law enforcement resources.” 23 April 2014 - “Facebook chat” Facebook.com via Erich Jacoby-Hawkins (2011 Green Party Candidate for Barrie) https://www.facebook.com/ErichTheGreen/posts/10154117396085121? comment_id=10154117470655121&offset=0&total_comments=7 Official Party Stance: Possession and Sales of Marijuana is a Criminal Offense.

  26. 26. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca “Mr. Speaker, since the Liberal leader took on his new role six months ago, he has announced only one concrete policy he has for Canada, his plan to legalize marijuana. ... We are opening the market for 500 million new consumers. While we have been focused on the economy and opening those markets, the Liberal leader has been focused on legalizing street drugs. His plan will make drugs easily available to our children, something our government will prevent. Our Prime Minister will keep illegal drugs off the streets. Clearly, the leader of the Liberal Party is way over his head.” October 31st, 2013 / 11:10 a.m. - “Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada: Statements By Members” OpenParliament.ca http://openparliament.ca/debates/2013/10/31/brad-butt-1/ Official Party Stance: Possession and Sales of Marijuana is a Criminal Offense.

  27. 27. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca Longtime Liberal Humber-St. Barbe-Baie Verte MP Gerry Byrne is not in favour of legalizing it, though he acknowledges people from all walks of life smoke the stuff. "I am in favour of decriminalizing possession of amounts less than that intended for the purposes of trafficking," he said. "There is a very real difference in decriminalizing versus legalization. Speeding is not a criminal offence, but it is certainly not legal. Reckless driving, on the other hand, with its potential to cause bodily harm, is a criminal offence," he said. "I believe imposing mandatory minimum sentences of six months in prison for growing six marijuana plants will simply make hardened criminals out of otherwise peaceful, non-violent citizens. Jails have been termed by many corrections experts as 'crime colleges,' where people who would otherwise not be exposed to violent criminal elements and habits - and to addiction risk from drugs within the prison system - are suddenly cast into such situations for months on end. This can only and will only ever lead to a bad result." Saturday, April 28, 2012 - “Most N.L. MPs favour decriminalization” Barb Sweet, The Telegram (St. John's), Local, p.

  33. 33. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca New changes to federal medical marijuana regulations is making one local politician very happy. Oshawa MP Colin Carrie says the changes had to be made to better protect people that need the drug, as well as public safety. He says users will no longer be allowed to grow pot at home, they will now be permitted to buy prescribed amounts only from licensed growers. Health Canada says since the medical marijuana program was introduced in 2001 with 500 authorized users, it has expanded to 30,000.
