Emery trial is about freedom, not cannabis

by Glenda Allard Barr, Nanaimo Daily News

At noon on Saturday, Jodie Emery, wife of Marc Emery will be speaking at Vancouver Island University and there will be a viewing of The U.S. vs. Marc Emery.

At this point, it looks as if Marc will also be there, since he is out on bail awaiting extradition to the U.S.

This has been presented as a cannabis-related event.

As I see it, the most compelling issue here is Canadian sovereignty. Our government chooses to let the U.S. control our policies and in this case, the freedom of one of our citizens.

This is frightening.

If we do not make our feelings known to our politicians, that we want a nation that is governed according to the wishes of its citizens rather than the whims of a foreign power, we are abandoning fellow citizens and our own principles.

Those who feel strongly about preserving Canadian control over our laws and our people can come out to building 200, room 203 to show support for this cause.

    I’m glad she picked Marc for her husband, he’s probably one of few who wouldn’t be worried about her falling for all the love we always show her while he’s gone!
    How did such a small woman get to be so brave?

    If he really wanted to, I’d offer to rewrite all of his pieces for readability & general tolerability without changing any points… keep them from repeating… so long as he never, ever, ever credits me for it lol. Let the op-editors and readers deal with him & his quasitruth.

    Is this “Cuauthemoc” again? (I think I gave you that name, sorry, you are distinctive though… kudos for managing that on the internet! 😐 )

    Back in 2008 on June 17, I received a letter from the office of the Minister of Public Safety who at the time was Stockwell (yes I did inhale)Day. I submit:

    Dear Mr. Lenard

    Your Member of Parliment, the Honourable Tony Clement, forwarded to me on May 12, 2008 your correspondence concerning the DNA testing of Canadians entering the United States.

    As the matter you raise pertains to the border clearance procedures for entering the U.S. I have asked the Canada Border Services Agency officials to forward to the U.S. Border and Protection a copy of our exchange of correspondence for their information. In the meantime, you may wish to consult the U.S. CBP’s Web site: http://www.cbg.gov/xp/cgov/home.xml. signed Stockwell Day Minister of Public safety.

    After reading an article in CC about the medical marijuana user who was subjected to a DNA sample being taken against her will when crossing over the USA just after the Conservative had fluked a minority win in the 06 election. I sent a letter to my local MP Clement and ask what was the Conservative Policy on such happenings. There were a few emails back and forth as to the source of my information. When I supplied the source as CC, it was stated that the Conservatives do not recognize CC as credible magazine.
    The hidden fact is that this lady was a legal medical marijuana user in Canada and this very private information had been made available only after the Conservatives took federal office. It is a violation of the Charter of Rights of Canada. But the elected members of the Conservative Party of Canada consider the Charter of Rights something that should not stand in the way of the implementation of the neo right ideology being forced on Canadians citizens, illegally? Had I known that the Conservative Party of Canada got it policies from the US CBP I would of just ask them. Although the US CBP was somewhat confused by the whole thing and stated they do not make policy for Foreign Governments not even for Stevie, Stock(i did inhale) or Tony
    (who did not inhale)?
