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.
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.
“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.
