Conservative MP Dona Cadman Welcomes ‘Free Marc’ Protestors

Cadman met with protestors last week to discuss the extradition to the US of cannabis activist Marc Emery and was surprisingly supportive.

Activists, including this reporter, visited to the office to follow up on last weeks meeting with the Conservative MP. Cadman was not in the office, but staff welcomed us and told us to make ourselves comfortable. Wendy, an assistant to Cadman, offered us cold pitchers of water and talked to us at length about politics and marijuana prohibition.

‘Free Marc’ campaigner William Austin met Cadman privately last week for a one-and-a-half hour conversation and discussed the details and consequences of Emery’s extradition.

“She gave the indication that Canadian citizens should not be serving time in the United States,” Austin said. “I think regardless of views on drug policy, that should be everyones view. […] Dona Cadman seemed to have her head on a lot straighter than a lot of Conservatives. She never said the words ‘gateway drug’ once”.

The welcoming atmosphere provided by the MP and staff is a departure from the majority of Conservative Office Occupations, some of which have ended with arrests and police brutality.

The vibe was so friendly that Wendy came out from around the counter to hug each of us as we left the office.

Plans are in the works to meet with Cadman again in the near future to seek further comment and support.

    Don’t mean to get technical on ya… But I heard Tommy Chong saying in an interveiw that he immigrated to the USA and became a citizen of that country.

    The exchanges above demonstrate why alcohol is the most harmful drug known to humankind. Not only does it cause cognitive confusion, but it makes people mean and vicious. Many alcoholics spend all of their time trying to hurt other people. That’s why there should be mandatory jail sentences for obnoxious drunks.

    Foolish woman! She’ll be facing trumped-up phony charges next!

    Doesn’t she know that the Americans are on an anti-Canadian campaign which involves kidnapping Canadian politicians and putting them in American jails? This is worse than the Muslim cartoons. The slightest criticism of America by Canadians (like Tommy Chong, Conrad Black, Marc Emery etc.) brings very harsh measures, indeed.

    Hi asshole, so I know you’re not a cop because they do leave thehouse sometime to go beat up marijuana users. You are the type of guy who tried so hard for so long to be a cop….but couldn’t. So you are now left to sit around your little apartment, fat as fuck, crying about what could have been. You were so close eh? A bitter, fat little white man with a hard on for staying anonymous and jerking off everytime you dispense another witty comment.

    I am glad losers like you stay indoors all day with the internet. It saves me the trouble of finding you watching children on the playground and kicking your ass.

    Now be a good pedophile and wait for your door to be kicked in……they are coming for you

    Don’t feed the troll, folks. By the way, anonymous, you should probably look into going back to school. Your spelling and grammar is hilariously bad. Yea, I smoke pot. I also have a Bachelor of Arts in English Language / Literature and am a candidate for a Master of Philosophy degree as we speak.

    So, now that we’ve got that cleared up – what were you saying about cannabis smokers again? We’re dumb? You can’t even discern what the apostrophe key looks like on your keyboard, let alone where to use it properly.

    STFU and crawl back under the rock you came from, you troll / paid shill.

    We both know you just make this all up as you go along..
    But nice try, and please try again, this time
    with your cranky stoner brain switched on
    You can;t even discern there is more than one “anonymous”
    poster on this site,, whew ! retard unless you think
    you are every anonymous poster and forget what you write.

    Is it just too hard to grasp that most people out there
    have different views and motivations than the
    420 Ding Dongs who see conspiracy in every drop of bong water?

    Pathetic ..

    To Everyone!

    This `person` writes this shit all the time, and has no actual reason to be on a site, as their views indicate. This is a paid troll, the goal of which is to give the perception of disagreement where there is none. The fact that they are going to these levels should give us encouragement, as it shows true desperation in keeping this medicine secret from the masses.

    When you see negative post like above, ask yourself why they would be on a site called Cannabis Culture in the first place.

    oh well, at least there weren’t any
    bellicose cranky med pot patients rolling joints
    on the public’s furniture –
    that was a good idea
    unless, as part of th conditions for jacobs release
    he agreed not to take part in any further stoner invasions

    Stoners were given water– cold tap water
    see? the Conservatives are hip
    to dry mouth syndrome and know
    that stoners are totally obsessed with pot
    and thats all they will ever want to talk about

    and so when is Marc flying home?
    surely that handshake was to seal the deal..

    Donna’s future in the Conservative Party is not looking bright. She must not have got the memo from Harper about locking the doors and calling the Gestapo. Harper will have her hung with piano wire for this.

    This is encouraging. This is the way MPs’ are supposed to greet and listen to the concerns of their constituents! Promote the heck out of this story and shame the rest of the cowardly Conservative MPs who try to bully and shove peaceful protesters and taxpayers out…using the kops as their gatekeepers.
