Cannabis Activists Demand Answers From Trudeau During Winnipeg Visit
As Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visits Winnipeg for the Biennial Liberal Party Convention, many activists gathered outside the doors of the Winnipeg Convention Center to demand answers from Trudeau regarding cannabis rights as countless people are thrown in prison for possession of marijuana, for selling cannabis to medical marijuana patients at dispensaries and for growing marijuana.
As several businesses were raided in Toronto, people are noticing that Trudeau was basically just “blowing smoke” during the election claiming he was going to legalize cannabis. In actuality, countless people are being arrested after thinking it’s safe to come out as a marijuana user. It was almost like a set up. Trudeau got elected largely on the vow to legalize marijuana and people are disgusted by his constant cop outs.
Josh Sigurdson spoke with rally organizer Steven Stairs (a blind medical cannabis user) about Trudeau’s broken promises and the excuses he has been trying to feed people.
Steven is an incredible passionate activist who has hosted the 420 celebrations and protests for several years. Steven has spoken with Trudeau publicly in the past to which Trudeau assured him that he would not allow a nanny state to continue under his watch and that he would legalize. When asked what he’d say to Trudeau if he was speaking with him today, Steven said, “If you’re going to shut us out of the conversation, then you’re basically making your own totalitarian decisions and that’s not government, that’s dictatorship.”
We couldn’t agree more!
Stay tuned for much more from Trudeau’s recent Winnipeg visit!
