Canadian Activist Marc Emery to be Extradited to the US after Minister Rob Nicholson Signs Extradition Order – MAY 10, 2010

Cornwall ON – The Prince of Pot, political activist Marc Emery has surrendered to police and the Rob Nicholson, the minister responsible has signed the extradition order.   Mr. Emery is expected to be transported to the US within the week.

In a gross injustice and threat to Canadian Sovereignty the Harper government is showing its allegiance to the former Bush regime rather than the citizens of Canada in this precedent setting case.

LINK

Documents obtained by Emery’s lawyer reveal that a U.S. undercover agent posing as a marijuana seed buyer worked in Canada to secure the criminal charges filed against Emery in Washington state.

The undercover operation is described in a briefing memo to Justice Minister Rob Nicholson dated Feb. 10, 2010, outlining the case against Emery.

The memo said numerous mail order purchases were made by U.S. undercover agents between March 2004 and March 2005 and an undercover U.S. Drug Enforcement agent was then sent to Vancouver.

The memo said the agent was under the supervision of and working with the approval of Vancouver’s police department.

So once you start this slippery slope where does it end?  Do you team up with Iranian Police and extradite homosexuals to Iran?  Do you team up with Chinese Police officials and extradite Falon Gong practioners?

This is indeed a dark day in Canadian judicial history.    For more information about Mr. Emery and his case you can visit his website.

No Canadian should be forced to leave Canada for any crime that was not committed on foreign soil.   If his business was not charged in Canada by Canadian law enforcement our government should be loudly condemned for allowing any country to tell it how to adjudicate over our own people.

Marc Emery:

“I feel it will be very politically unpopular if (the minister) proceeds with the extradition because, let’s say five to seven million Canadian’s use marijuana … I have the support of hundreds of thousands, possibly millions of Canadians.”

If you wish to contact Minister Nicholson to share your opinion here’s how to contact his office.

Never again will I vote Conservative. Rob Nicholson just cemented that. I guess there is someone even more useless than Guy… either way, never again!

Law against the sale of marijuana seeds in Canada has been enforced 2 times. both resulting in minor fines. In fact the Vancouver P.D. had been watching Marc Emery for months building a case and tried to charge him but the crown would not agree stating that there were far more serious crimes to deal with. So the Vancouver P.D handed over the case to the American D.E.A. and they came to Canada and plucked him out of our country!!! Where the hell is our sovereignty? Where is our freedom? Since when can another country come to Canada and dictate… Read more »

Brad do you mean – Canada is an “amoral” country? Where did Canada get her moral compass? From our distant fellow countrymen – the ape man? Nations have come and nations have fallen, no nation continues after they reject the true and living God – the God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ. There is no moral virtue without knowing this God personally, and by the restraining influence of His Word. One can only know Him by having a living relationship with His Son, and via the Word of God. Our heritage comes from the Judah/Christian influence of our… Read more »

Marc Emery was sending marijuana seeds to the USA. This is against their laws! If someone ships a nuclear warhead to the USA, it too is against their laws, and the perpetrators will pay the price. So whats the difference? He broke the law in the USA and made a plea bargain with the US prosecutors. Now it’s time to do the time. Quit whining and accept responsibility for your actions!

You know, its funny, Old Mafiosi, Rob Nicholson even used United States vs Cotroni, as part of his basis for allowing the extradition of Marc Emery. Cotroni (an old mafiosi Kingpin for Montreal – not you because he’s dead) was a criminal both here and in the US, except he actually did some stuff in the US on US soil. And indeed it was for organized crime reasons in the case of Cotroni. Marc Emery wants to remove the criminal stigma from this. It gives more reason for crime to happen to keep these regressive laws as is, then to… Read more »

Here is another example for you to consider in your argument points. China, they are against Falun Gong. So, lets say for example, they send agents here (like the states did with the DEA), so they could perform actions here to catch/track people that are part of the Falun Gong movement, and then they return home, and send message back to our government that they want such and such Falun Gong members extradited to China to answer to charges for participating in Falun Gong. Its the exact same thing as what just happened to Marc Emery. Now we all know… Read more »

For the bible thumpers, who are commenting on here like blind sheep: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God. Blessed are those persecuted for righteousness’ sake: For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:9-10) God said, “Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth… Read more »

RE: Pastor Tom Newton How dare you say i have no moral because i don’t believe in religion. If you ask me, the priests and pastors that rape little children in church and then hide behind their doors have no moral. Billions of people have been killed in the name of God or Alla or a big 8 armed elephant. Why don’t i get a gun now a kill someone in the name of the tooth fairy? does that make sense? “no nation continues after they reject the true and living God” Ya.. that’s true just look at Iran, Afghanistan,… Read more »

It’s sometimes hard to not respond to the pastor’s comments. I’ve responded a few times myself. I think most people who have followed his rants over the years, realize by now that the man is a few bricks shy of a load, and any attempt at debate or rational discussion with him is futile. When he gets into the homophobic hate stuff, or dissing the religions of other people, he should be soundly spanked, but otherwise, maybe he should just be ignored? It’s easy and sometimes amusing to play him like a fish, and I have done that, but really,… Read more »

After Adam and Eve sinned things were not so good anymore. In fact as Rom 3:9 – 18 puts it – “What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their… Read more »

Umm… Pastor Tom… you are so blind you can read the words and not heed them: God said, “Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.” And God saw everything that he… Read more »

Id go with Kevin S’s knowledge and outlook of the bible long before I ever follow the pastors teachings. Finally someone of sound mind properly using certain scriptures while remaining coherent instead of someone running on about dribble.. good job Sir!

I must admit that it’s mildly amusing watching the pastor and Kevin hurling bible passages at each other. Did Monty Python ever do a skit like this? They must have.

Kevin S. – you fail to realize that God does not want His creatures to be controlled by any drug. Eph 5:17-18 tells us, “Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit”. The meaning of this is that we are not allowed to let anyone or anything control us but God Holy Spirit and His Word. The rest of Eph. 5 and 6 demonstrates the life of a believer as they are filled with the presence of God. No… Read more »

“And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit” The way I understand those ancient propagandaic scriptures are as follows: “And be not drunk with wine,..” Indeed, be not drunk on alcohol, because everyone back then and even up to today knows that the stuff eventually kills you. Moderation is key as proven by this line “..wherein is excess” We’ve been saying that Alcohol is worse for you than pot for a century now. And he must have meant getting higher is better then alcohol, per the “Be filled with the Spirit” part of… Read more »

RE: Old Mafiosi

In Canada it is minor fine to sell seeds. In the U.S.A it is jail time. In order to extradite someone, both countries have to have the same penalties.

Can we extradite the owner of Glock handguns for making weapons then end up here and are used in murders? No. So why don’t you stand up for your country’s sovereignty or get the hell out.

Brad Armstrong my country’s sovereignty is not threatened by the antics of a multi-millionaire drug dealer like Marc Emery. He made the plea bargain, now let him live up to his word. Or maybe drug dealers solemn oaths are no good?

Grimalot

I didn’t become pro scriptures. Or a bible teacher. That is my understanding from those words “inspired by god”. That’s all. We’re all welcome to what we believe the bible says right? Afterall, its all just interpretation of what some people 2000 years ago may have meant.

RE: Old Mafiosi If march emery is a drug dealer than so is Health Canada and so is the government of Canada. perhaps you missed this so i will say it again. Mark emery paid taxes on every dollar made. Health Canada would send licensed cannabis cultivators to Marc to buy seeds. The Crown decided NOT TO CHARGE MARC EMERY. The U.S.A came into Canada a charged Marc. Marc Emery gave every penny away to legalization efforts around the globe. If you still think Marc is a “multi-millionaire drug dealer” and this isn’t a sovereignty issue then i think you… Read more »

A word for Rodney Vander Veer and others who take pleasure in sin: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!” (Isa. 5:20 – 23).
