  3. 3. Okanagan—Shuswap (British Columbia) “Then the thought came to me: why would any political party want to legalize marijuana, which would only destroy children's lives and families? Is it not the duty of government to protect the health and safety of its citizens? I said a little prayer while I stood at the poolside. I petitioned that our grandchildren would never live under a government that would legalize marijuana.” November 20th, 2013 / 2:10 p.m. - “Legalization of Marijuana: Statements By Members” OpenParliament.ca http://openparliament.ca/debates/2013/11/20/colin-mayes-1/ Official Party Stance: Possession and Sales of Marijuana is a Criminal Offense. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca Colin Mayes, MP Conservative Party of Canada 1-800-665-5040 / (250) 260-5020 colin.mayes@parl.gc.ca colinmayes.ca facebook.com/canadaprayerbreakfast WILL NOT BE SEEKING RE-ELECTION
  4. 4. Markham—Unionville (Ontario) "Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to add my voice to the rising opposition to Bill C-10, which is perhaps best characterized as the Conservatives' most recent piece of dumb on crime legislation." “Second, in my opinion, six plants is not a huge number. In more general terms, we are opposed to the principle of mandatory minimum sentences.” “Mr. Speaker, I do not accept this principle that the Conservatives have a monopoly on caring about victims. Our view is that this bill would create more victims because when we send young people into jail they learn to become criminals and when they get out they are more likely to reoffend."

  5. 5. "Also last week, the Liberal leader said that his priority was to make it easier to possess and use an illegal drug, marijuana. His justice spokesperson echoed those sentiments: hiking taxes on job creators, lowering the EI qualifying period to 45 days which will increase payroll taxes, increasing the GST back to 7% and billions in reckless spending, plus the Liberal leader's iPod tax. The census and marijuana. It seems like everything is a priority for the Liberal leader except the economy."

I thought it was a stupid idea in 70s, it hasn't improved in the 80s and it has got really stupid in 90s and now it's downright dangerous. It wasn't even a temptation. ... I agree with Anne McLellan that there is no study in the world that shows that marijuana has any medicinal benefits. Would you ever put any drug on the market untested readily available from dealers on street corners and say, "oh, well, this has got medicinal benefits." You'd be run out of town and rightfully so. So, I don't buy the argument that this has medicinal benefits, it may have psychological benefits. ...” August 05, 2003 at 08:06:56 PT - “Have You Ever Smoked Marijuana?” Posted by CN Staff - Cannabis News - By F.

  8. 8. Kamloops—Thompson—Cariboo (British Columbia) She said her Conservative government is concentrating on changing its policies on medical marijuana, to have the drug grown by government contractors instead of individual users. McLeod said a more relaxed drug policy for non-medical users isn't on the table.

  9. 9. Richmond Hill (Ontario) “The risks of using illegal drugs, including marijuana or cannabis, are far-reaching and can have serious consequences on the health and future of young people,” said MP Menegakis. “The evidence showing that the use of cannabis early in adolescence, while the brain is still developing, may lead to more lasting, irreparable problems is particularly alarming. Our government has no tolerance for the production and trafficking of illicit drugs and I am proud of our landmark crime legislation, The Safe Streets and Communities Act that was enacted to address the serious problem of organized drug crime.” “In contrast, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau advocates for the legalization of marijuana and for making it more easily available to youth,” said MP Menegakis. “The simple fact is that marijuana is illegal because of the serious consequences on its users and on society. While our government is focused on providing law enforcement the tools they need to keep our communities safe, Mr. Trudeau is undermining the important work of our police services with his ill-thought out comments. Clearly, Mr. Trudeau is just in over his head.” September 20, 2013 - “MP Costas Menegakis congratulates York Regional Police for major illicit drug seizure” costasmenegakis.ca http://www.costasmenegakis.ca/media_/riding-news/mp-costas-menegakis-congratulates-york-regional-police- http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca for-major-illicit-drug-seizure Official Party Stance: Possession and Sales of Marijuana is a Criminal Offense.

  10. 10. Portneuf—Jacques-Cartier (Quebec) The Conservatives are constantly boasting about the importance they attach to law and order in Canada and about the fact that they are prepared to put Canadians in jail for years just because of a few marijuana plants. However, they refuse to do anything to create obstacles for big drug traffickers. It is really impossible to understand this government.

  11. 11. Bruce—Grey—Owen Sound (Ontario) "Mr. Speaker, Canadians are concerned about where medical marijuana can be used, about the potential health effects it can have on those exposed to it when it is smoked in public. Will the Minister of Health instruct her officials to examine this issue and provide further legislation?"

  13. 13. Port Moody—Westwood—Port Coquitlam (British Columbia) “Even if Canada legalized marijuana, grow ops here would remain a hugely lucrative business for organized crime given our proximity to the U.S., which has no intention of decriminalizing or legalizing pot. The reality is that grow ops will continue to be a huge public safety issue, no matter what our pot laws say.” March 9.2005 - “Grow-ops Threaten All of Us” JamesMore.org - Toronto Sun Editorial http://www.jamesmoore.org/tsunmar9.htm Official Party Stance: Possession and Sales of Marijuana is a Criminal Offense. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca Hon.

  14. 14. Fundy Royal (New Brunswick) "Just as they tried to gut our Government's legislation ending two-for-one credit for time served, the Liberals have shown once again that they're soft on crime. We need Michael Ignatieff and his Liberal colleagues to stand against the gangs who exploit Canada's most vulnerable citizens, including our youth," MP Moore added December 15, 2009 - “MP Rob Moore Calls on Liberals to Reverse the Gutting of Legislation to Tackle Serious Drug Crimes” RobMooremp.org http://www.robmooremp.com/121509.htm Official Party Stance: Possession and Sales of Marijuana is a Criminal Offense. http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca Hon.

  15. 15. Chicoutimi—Le Fjord (Quebec) "My next question is in regard to the sweeping changes proposed in the marijuana for medical purposes regulations. Through these new regulations, medical marijuana users will be forced to access medical marijuana through expensive commercial growers. Your own department has submitted that a new cost will be $8.80 per gram, up from its current rate of $1.80 per gram. Many medical marijuana patients grow their own supplies or buy medical marijuana from the local compassion clubs because they are on a limited income due to their illness, or because they have a disability that prevents them from having a higher income. Why are medical marijuana patients being forced to buy their own supplies from expensive commercial growers? How are they expected to afford this medical treatment?"

  16. 16. Notre-Dame-de-Grâce—Lachine (Quebec) "Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank the hon. member for her question. Part of the bill deals with drugs. I am astonished to see the government put forward a bill that would imprison those who abuse drugs or marijuana. In my classes, approximately one out of five students had access to an addiction specialist who could tell them how to reduce their use, what help was available and who could help.

  19. 19. "When the smell persisted, Mourani said, her office staff became concerned it could be masking another odour, so she contacted police. "They told me they had probably set up here in early January," Mourani said. "So it's not so bad that after three months we drove them out." When police officers arrived, the found more than 15,000 marijuana plants on the third floor of the building, said Montreal police Const. Olivier Lapointe.
