Gov’t needs moral compass Frank Wirrell
Letter to the Editor Abbotsford News
I am absolutely astounded at how quickly the media in general have accepted the argument put forward by Justin Trudeau with respect to the legalization of cannabis.
He has claimed that this action will severely restrict the actions of drug dealers but makes no statement to support this ridiculous and stupid statement.
Now that it is legal. there are two speciﬁc facts that will definitely work in favour of the drug dealers. Many who have never used this dangerous substance will be encouraged to try it out and those who are users will gladly purchase the drug from dealers as they will not have to pay any tax.
Making this dangerous drug legal places our future generation at risk as many young people will think it is something to try. Further. the costs to our medical system will escalate dramatically and there is absolutely no way that taxes on this substance will cover same.
It is already a known fact that the taxes on tobacco cover less than 30 percent of the costs created from its usage. It is reasonable to conclude that tax on marijuana will not do any better. As a result the general public will be ﬁnancing the users and producers of this substance.
The only thing that this action has proven is that our prime minister is the worst we have ever had in Canada as both he and his government tail to show any leadership at all and are taking
every possible action to finance their friends and relatives
What is needed by this country is a government that has some moral compass and is ready to work in the interests of the country and the moral integrity of its people.

Contemplative Canadians reacted to Canadian Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould’s statement that she was “extremely disappointed” because the Senate opposed legislation granting police the power to conduct random breathalyser tests, with support for the Senate’s “upholding of Canadian values” against the “appalling assault” by Federal Justice Minister Wilson-Raybould.
Wilson-Raybould’s actions were judged as making it clear the testing really needed was electroencephalograms [EEGs] for politicians to confirm – or deny – the presence of brain activity.
Unmistakably apparent, at least to a creatively maladjusted polymath, in the smooth flow of Pete McMartin’s ‘A Limit to Social Housing’ on housing in Vancouver is the root cause of the deterioration affordable housing, homelessness, the economy, Canada’s standard of living and so much of Canadian life suffers.
Actions and policies cannot effectively address the challenges and issues facing Canada and Canadians [governments, businesses, citizens] when the decisions, policies and actions are based on myth.

When the results of Canada’s 2015 federal election were in and it was clear that Canadian voters had given the Liberal Party a substantial majority thereby choosing Justin Trudeau as Prime Minister [since voters re-elected MP Trudeau] I began composing a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to express my concerns about the divergence between Reality as it Exists and Reality as perceived by politicians, pundits, specific interest groups and presented to Canadians by the media as the Truth without any true diversity of thought, challenge, examination or analysis..
Reality does not care what your ideology says is true, what you believe is true or what you want to be true; Reality does not care what we think, it exists separately from us and simply is what it is. Tao of James
