Did Guy Lauzon Write His Justin Trudeau Marijuana Piece? by Jamie Gilcig – August 6, 2013 HARPER

Guy Lauzon PigeonJustin Trudeau’s Policy Priority – Legalizing Marijuana

 

I usually don’t comment on the policy positions of other parties and their Members, but given the content of Justin Trudeau’s first policy announcement, I feel I must. I believe differences in opinion and policy are what democracy is all about. When members of different political parties debate opposite positions on issues it allows everyone, including the voting public, to gain more knowledge about the subject matter.

Last week Justin Trudeau, the Leader of the Liberal Party, made his first policy announcement that marijuana should be legalized in Canada. When reporters asked if he was in favour of decriminalizing marijuana Trudeau said “I am actually not in favour of decriminalizing cannabis. I am in favour of legalizing it”.

This is very concerning to me for a number of reasons. Firstly, I have heard from my constituents that they are concerned about our economic growth and job creation. My colleagues across the country have heard the same. The fact that Mr. Trudeau is not making Canada’s economic success a top policy priority for the Liberal Party shows he is out of touch with Canadians and does not have the judgement to be Prime Minister.

Secondly, Marijuana is illegal in Canada because of the harm it does to individuals and society as a whole. I don’t think Mr. Trudeau is taking a look at the bigger picture on this issue. According to the experts, ultimately, marijuana is a harmful substance. Even more troubling, is that according to Fraser Macrae, former Assistant Commissioner of the RCMP, “…cannabis is a currency for organized crime.” The detrimental effects organized crime can have on Canadian communities and families can be devastating. Profits used by organized crime groups selling marijuana are commonly used to traffic illicit drugs, firearms and humans.

I would encourage Mr. Trudeau to take a closer look at the detrimental effects legalizing marijuana can have on Canadian communities and families. Personally, I do not believe marijuana should be legalized. As the Member of Parliament for SD&SG, I will do everything in my power to prevent the legalization of this potentially harmful drug. Unlike the Liberal Party, our Government will focus on jobs, economic growth and the safety of Canadian communities and families.

CFN – The above letter was a statement from our MP Guy Lauzon.  The photo of course is the now famous Guy Lauzon pigeon photo.

Now anyone that has ever looked at Mr. Lauzon’s facebook page or met the man can tell you that erudition is not his forte.   He’s not a man of words; at least not well thought words of his own, nor is he a strong public speaker.

“de mora graphics” ?

Now Mr. Lauzon would not be the first politician to have the use of a scriptwriter or staffer, but are these his deep personal thoughts or beliefs or is he just pumping the spin at the local level for Mr. Harper?

Taxpayers and voters should know this irregardless of their position on this or other subjects.   Such blatant regurgitation though should not have a name on it in this manner.

marijuana cures cancer. Lauzon is a buffoon and a fool and a shill and a scoundrel.

Marijuana ‘soothes’ the effects of cancer. I do not believe it ‘cures’ cancer. I do not believe that Mr. Lauzon is any of the aforementioned comments of Russell Barth but only a sorry excuse of not being able to put into truth in a way non-partisans can agree. I also believe that Mr. Lauzon is long overdue in challenging the government to provide store front clean up grants at his 4 red light corner in St. Andrews. For a post Office and convenience store to be in such tardy shape, it surely is an embarrassment to the entire community. One… Read more »

“Secondly, Marijuana is illegal in Canada because of the harm it does to individuals and society as a whole. I don’t think Mr. Trudeau is taking a look at the bigger picture on this issue. According to the experts, ultimately, marijuana is a harmful substance.” I have many issues with this statement. First issue is with the fact that you’re injecting your own personal opinion in a ‘news’ article. “But Steve, He said that according to experts, marijuana is harmful!” some may say. Sure, he did, but who are these experts exactly? Number of studies have shown the exact opposite… Read more »

Marijuana does not cure cancer at all whatsoever. If that were true marijuana would be so mighty expensive that the little people would never have it in their possession and only the very rich would be entitled to it. Cancer could be cured if Big Pharma would allow it as well as the doctors but it is being held behind from the people so that Big Pharma can make a ton of money off the SHEEPLE as well as paying doctors or many would not have jobs in the health care industry. The only thing that marijuana does is destroy… Read more »

I feel the need to correct some of the incredibly ignorant comments on this thread. Obviously this article was written by an uninformed moron. But there seems an avalanche of ignorant comments too. First of all, cannabis does NOT kill brain cells. This is a matter of fact, it has been proven that cannabis does not kill brain cells (or any other healthy cell), in fact it has been proven that cannabinoids protect brain cells and stimulate the growth of brain cells. The US government even hold patent for it as an anti oxidant and neuro protectant, 6630507. To those… Read more »

Jamie I think that many posters here have not read this to the spot where it was signed by dumbass skip lauzon.
I think that it should be legal to smoke pot if one chooses same as alcohol with same laws.This would greatly cut out the sales from organized crime.would also cut out the costs related to court fees.Lauzon is not listening to the people,never has & never will,he is self serving to his party

Matthew and Steve, you both seem to be confused about who is the author or the article and who is the author of the statement issued to the press. It was our MP Mr. Lauzon who claims;

“Secondly, Marijuana is illegal in Canada because of the harm it does to individuals and society as a whole. I don’t think Mr. Trudeau is taking a look at the bigger picture on this issue. According to the experts, ultimately, marijuana is a harmful substance.”

not Jamie. Please identify who you claim is the uninformed moron or morons.

Lauzon should have kept his nose out of this debate. The PMO would not be stupid enough to write this letter. He does make some valid points though. Is legalizing marijuana really the only policy change the libs can put forward? Reminds me of high school when they promise more dances to gain votes. I’m anxious to see how they plan to implement this policy. If it’s anything like the LCBO, I’ll pass. Just wait until we’re paying $40-50 dollars a gram so they can afford to pay the bilingual clerk 60-80k per year to sell it. They’ll spin it… Read more »

No Furtz the only experience that I had with marijuana was to see one of my school mates all drugged up and didn’t know where he was most times. Another man that I worked with was all on marijuana and had a lovely girlfriend and ended up beating her until she left. Drugs are no good at all. All I see about Cornwall’s crimes are the drugs, alcohol and illegal cigarette smuggling. We are straight arrows here in my household.

“I usually don’t comment on the policy positions of other parties and their Members, but given the content of Justin Trudeau’s first policy announcement, I feel I must.” Sure he doesn’t, someone else writes it up for him. And this is not a policy, this was a question asked to Trudeau… As it was asked to others in the past. I’m sure he has a lot more to come. ““I am actually not in favour of decriminalizing cannabis. I am in favour of legalizing it”.” This is actually a very smart move! Decriminalizing it still leaves it as a taboo… Read more »

But it doesn’t surprise me that Guy would launch a tirade, an attack add, as that is the way of the federal conservatives and their dirty politics. He Guy, Justin is not even the official opposition!

@ PJ Robertson, thanks. 😉 @ jules, you need your head read. You can’t go and lump everyone in the same boat. I can almost 99% guarantee you that marijuana was not the problem with these people. Probably more likely to be some mental issues or not admitted to, harder drugs. Like oxy’s or something. Plus, marijuana is not a gateway drug, the dealer is the gateway. Had this person you “knew”, not had to go to a dealer to get their pot, they probably wouldn’t have been introduced to the harder stuff to begin with. Food for thought. All… Read more »

@ Jules. You’ve been hanging out with the wrong people. Nothing I can do about that. The vast majority of people who enjoy the weed or use it for medicinal purposes are quite normal and cause no problems to society. So, because you know a few ass-hats who smoked weed, nobody should partake of the herb? I know a few ass-hats who drink beer, and some who eat cheese. Should beer and cheese be banned too?

@ Dave White – beautiful comments. Guy can go stand by his candle in the morning praying that the world doesn’t askew from the bible any further, and voting his religious conscience for the masses, not really asking for what “all constituents” want except for just those that voted for him, makes him not much different that the Ayatollah’s and such trying to repress their citizens.

Furtz can you imagine if the weed were legal and people were smoking it like regular cigarettes and getting behind the wheel of a vehicle or working on machinery, etc. what that would be like? Just think about this before you give me an answer. I can tell you that marijuana is intoxicating. Certain doctors like the one that Jamie interviewed has given it to a few of his patients and the police are outside of his practice. One thing that either you or another person wrote that it is more dangerous taking the legal meds than the weed and… Read more »

Furtz back in the 1920’s there was the prohibition era and during that time when people could not get alcohol legally they either made their own or visited their local bootlegger. JFK’s father old Joe Sr. was a bootlegger with the Bronfman family in Toronto – the booze flowed over the boundaries like water but hidden from the authorities. Elliot Ness was one of the cops on the chase after Al Capone and his gang during those days. If people want the weed bad enough they will grow it and I read that it is even grown among the corn… Read more »

If I ever come down with some terminal or debilitating disease and require medication to relieve pain or discomfort, rest assured that I sure as hell won’t be asking you to approve whatever drug I use. You seem to think from your limited experience, that you know what’s best for everyone. Pretty presumptuous and judgmental on your part. Same thing with the use of alcohol or weed for pleasure. You choose not to partake, and that is great. But as long as a person is not causing a problem or danger to the community, it’s none of your… Read more »

Pot does cure cancer, not in the street form where you smoke it in a joint or pipe, but in it’s pure natural form of oil. There are many medical and scientific studies that prove it does cure cancer. There are other natural cures for cancer as well. Don’t believe me, just google alternative cures for cancer. One thing for certain, the the traditional methods of cure like kemo theraphy and radiation are very expensive and destructive to our bodies, poison. They may be effective in certain types of cancer but your whole body is sicken by the effects. Normally… Read more »

The Only reason that cannibis is a currency for organized crime, is because it is illegal. Kill the prohibition and you kill the criminal element. The drug war has failed. Miserably. Billions have been spent, all wasted I might add. Countless families have been torn apart, because dad gets caught smoking weed and gets sent to jail. Bottom line, prohibition DOES NOT WORK, period, point, blank. Ask Al Capone how alcohol prohibition worked to stop organized crime. Oh yeah that’s right, it grew it to murder, death, kill levels.

nonbeliever I looked up about cluster headaches and that is really bad indeed. You must be on a disability to have such a thing happen to you. There are meds for that and I really don’t know how marijuana can help. There is something about cigarette smoking (overuse of cigarette smoking) can cause that and I read something about possible inheritance. When they mentioned that it gets as painful or more painful than childbirth I almost yelled because I will never forget that kind of pain ever.
