Canada: Column: Ontario's Pot-Store Plan Is Legitimate A And Pathetic

Tue, 12 Sep 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Globe and Mail, 12 Sep 2017 - Ontario's puritanical plan to sell marijuana in sterile state-run stores would be laughable if it was not a striking reminder that a) with just nine months before legalization, there is still no comprehensive plan in place and; b) foot-dragging legislators seem to have lost sight of why cannabis needs to be legalized in the first place.

Fri, 29 Jan 2016 08:00:00 GMT

Guelph Mercury, 29 Jan 2016 - It seems like only yesterday Ontarians were faced with the news that, after many years, the sex education curriculum in public schools was getting a much needed revamp. Imagine if you will, in an alternate reality, that this new curriculum contained a directive to teach students that masturbation led to blindness. In 2016, we would collectively consider this absurd. We would identify this as blatant attempt to frighten students from seeking out any sexual encounters in the vain hope that they will put any ideas of sex from their minds indefinitely.
