Marc Emery is holding a press conference outside the BC Supreme Court at 9:00am. The extradition hearing will take place at 10:00am.

As part of the plea deal process, Marc will be committed for extradition on one count by the judge, and then taken into Canadian custody to await the federal Justice Minister’s extradition order.

“This is an absolutely devastating situation to be in,” said Marc’s wife, Jodie Emery. “It’s terrifying to have my husband taken from me and imprisoned in a country he’s never been to.

“If Marc has committed a crime here in Canada by selling marijuana seeds, he should be dealt with by Canada’s courts,” she said. “But instead, the Conservative government is sending my husband to an extremely harsh punishment in a dangerous foreign prison system. Many Canadians are offended at this affront to our sovereignty and believe the Justice Minister should refuse to extradite Marc Emery to the USA.”
