C-15 is Dead!

I have some great news! C-15 is no more.

Today, Stephen Harper asked the Governor General to “prorogue” (end the session of) Parliament. This means that all the bills are dead, C-15 included!

Had it not been for the hard work of everyone in lobbying the Senate, C-15 would have passed into law. That’s right, we campaigned politically and won! C-15 has been stopped!

The Parliament will resume in March, and we can assume Stephen Harper will reintroduce C-15 in some form shortly thereafter.

We can not stop now! We must continue to build so that when C-15 comes back we can face it with even greater numbers and more intense campaigning.

    One group should not have the power to rule and control how the rest of a society get to live their lives. Government is force.

    This is what is on the front page before I click on this article.
    “Had it not been for the hard work of everyone in lobbying the Senate, C-15 would have passed into law. That’s right, we campaigned politically and won! C-15 has been stopped!”

    Why are we misleading anyone, the cannabis culture had nothing to do with this. Don’t mislead the very people you need support from, stop playing politics and lets get real information out there. C-15 is very much alive and very real and will be passed UNLESS we can get some truth to the people instead of this misleading BS.

    YOU – WE DID NOT WIN ANYTHING. Parliment prorogued and this bill C – 15 will be fast tracked to a Conservative Majority committee. The only way to stop this is to have an election and hope the Conservative’s get voted out.

    The Liberals should use this as the reason for a non confidence motion. Shutting down Parliament for a couple months for the supposed reason of the Olympics is pretty lame. What do the Olympics in Vancouver have to do with Parliament? Harper is clearly acting in a bizarre manner and must be removed from office before he does something dangerous to the country and blames the Olympics.

    If you are putting your faith in the hands of man you will really be disappointed. Iggy has been touched by the wings of the fly, the skull and bones society? He cannot be trusted?

    It is beyond the supporters of this site to stop the neo-right ideology of the Harper Government from anchoring its grip on the dismantling of every civil rite our forefathers have fought to establish. But the strange thing is the political mentors of our Prime Minister, known as the Bush Family played a large monetary hand in creating the German right wing movement headed by Hitler. Must be a serious conflict for Steve!

    Listening to whyprohibition.ca, you’d think that they were responsible for C-15 dying. Taking credit for what they are not responsible for, really cool. As far as I’m concerned, whyprohibition flip flops as often as Jack Layton!

    righton. this was not something for marihuana activists to take credit for. this was a sly move by harper the dictator, he’ll bring out an even more cruel-hearted bill next May, now that he’s wrangled it so that he can stack the senate with rubber-stamping-zombies of his own selection. (Cmon! Do you honestly believe that they did this because we tied up their constituancy offices phones and emails? harper and nicholson couldn’t care less about that). It’s pathetic that these hypocrites who once wanted a REFORMed, elected senate because of the partisan-appointments are now using the senate for their own partisan purposes. WAKE UP NOW, CANADIAN VOTERS: HARPER HAS GOT TO GO!

    This decision was definitely linked more to the Afghan detainee investigation than it was with you pot smokin hippies!

    I love it!! So many politicians looked like they were going to just lay there, afraid to assert reason and logic, and let this war on peaceful people continue. They would’ve too, if it weren’t for you beautiful active humans!! All of you, anyone reading this!
    All of you there at cannabisculture should be very proud of your vital hard work. I’m an american, and I come here to get connected to news and information that effects all of us. You are not a “getting high” movement. This is much, much more then that!! This is a civil rights movement for the humans of the world! I give you all my gratefulness!! I wish I could give you the gratefulness of all of the people who would be grateful if they knew what was going on, for reals!
    CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    The Liberals only supported it the firs time around because they had planned to fix it later. With the Senate majority gone, they will have to fix it in the house.

    We have to make sure that any bill re-introduced does not pass the House of Commons. Call your Liberal MP now!

    This is not good news.This gives P.M.Harper to stack the senate.He will reinterduce bill c-15,and with the support of Iggy it will pass the house. Now when that happens the senate will not gut the bill like they did, it will pass.There is no way to beat this bill, because both main parties support this bill.Funny is it as America and other countries ease up on thier laws for pot, Canada goes to the other extrem. God i hope iam wrong, but iam not.Canadians must understand that thier goverment (both main parties) wants to lock up people for using weed.

    The Conservatives want C-15, and they will get it.
    The other two major polirtical parties support it- so there is a basic delay for parliment – so when they come back in March- the government will seize at C-15 and it will pass.. If you think delays mean its going awaym just look at marc Emery- busted in 2005 and delayed for five years having surrendered his seed business- barking for five years till he goes off to jail for five years- basically a ten year sentence. Five years of strict bail conditions having his peacock feathers pulled out of his ass, one at a time, except on National TV where they come out by the handfull

    People dont be fooled by this seemingly good news. Harper has more than 1 trick up his sleeve and warranty he’ll come back with a harsher bill for potheads in the future.The senate will then have a majority conservative and this time there wont be any ways for the liberal senators to stop whats in stephens mind.
    In the meantime sleep tight but keep an eye opened….

    Be aware that when parliament resumes the conservatives will have a plurality of senators which means they will control all committees in the senate. Our struggle will be even harder and more important then ever a that time. Be prepared for a big fight on this one.
