Vancouver Sun columnist Barbara Yaffe also endorsed us, writing that “Decriminalization of pot in Canada is a sensible idea whose time has come.

Jon Ferry wrote in the Province that it’s “High time to look at legalizing the sale of pot.

An editorial in Victoria’s Times Colonist newspaper endorsed legalization and said that “US pot votes show us the way.

The Goldstream Gazette also endorsed Sensible BC, along with the Campbell River Mirror, which wrote that it is “Time for change to BC pot laws.”

Even the Globe and Mail endorsed our efforts, and wrote “For BC marijuana advocates, Mr. Larsen’s campaign appears to represent the best hope.

Finally, the National Post recently had a lengthy letters column with mostly supportive comments for legalization of cannabis.

This campaign is just getting started, and already we have incredible momentum!

I’m still on the campaign trail, this week I will be in Penticton, Kamloops, Kelowna and Vernon. Next week I’m not on the road, but in December I will be visiting most of Vancouver Island.

January will see me touring through much of the Lower Mainland, as well as communities such as Abbotsford and Chilliwack.

Thanks again for your support! Together we will change the pot laws in British Columbia.
