Legislation to Policy into Practice

There are two perspectives to Toronto’s law-and-order approach to pot shops: a victory for safe neighbourhoods, or a hypocritical attack on pot pioneers to enable a corporate takeover of their lucrative industry. What do you think?

    costly waste of police time,paperwork and court time, when murderers are being let go for their cases taking too long

    Hopefully the clerks and customers are having the charges set aside as the article suggests. A criminal record could hold these predominantly young employees and users back in their lives well beyond the passing of the legislation.

    Excellent point. the extreme cost borders on cruel and extreme punishment on what is a legitimate medical treatment that the Feds have been giving to veterans. the social hypocrisy is staggering.
Thousands were impacted at the height of Friday rush hour when the TTC halted subway service between St. George and Union stations, forcing commuters to try and find alternate, less pungent routes home.

    Someone still in school thinking it’s a joke?

     I don’t think the post-911 generation in school grew up thinking that was a joke thing.
     let’s hope it was not a practice run and just a copycat playing at grown up terrorism.

    The election was close enough that it probably made a difference even though the overall amount was likely small. But a different woman probably would have been elected — it was the fact that it was Hillary who (for reasons both fake and real) was perceived as not a good person that lost the election. They knew this at the time of the primaries but thought they would overcome (I thought there was a chance they might squeak through — but it didn’t happen).

    Who won the American popular vote?

     The national popular vote doesn’t matter for numerous reasons – take CA or NY out, and it swung the opposite since there were a only handful of electoral districts that ended up swinging the national vote (located in NYC region and LA region) where population density in a few electoral districts accounts for the entire difference and then some.

    It wasn’t misogyny, it was character. Admitting your own faults is hard…she isn’t there yet.

    I concur, Madame Clinton. I concur.

    It does matter. Gerrymandering won the electoral college. Not the idiot in office. Wake up and quit mimicking contributions.

    You look sad and pathetic.

     the ‘legal vote’?

    Good one. Keep drinking the koolaid.

    It was totally, and this is why all the “if only a man had run, the dems woulda won” whining.
    frankly, starting to wonder if the dems do pretend to not be sexist, racist, LGBTQphobic etc. the republicans, as repulsive as they are are at least honest with their hate and paranoia

    No, stupidity did.

    Hillary is correct, misogyny definitely derailed her presidential bid. Trump’s one scandal after another came to the fore regarding his sexual misconduct against women, but the misogynists along with certain women just ignored them, because of their slavish loyalty towards Trump. But in the case of Hillary, one fake news after another were believed as the cardinal truth by the misogynists, and in the final phase of campaigning, FBI led by Comey confirmed the probe into her emails, whereas he at least waited until after the election to confirm there was an investigation related to Trump’s campaign, which cost her the election dearly, and she ultimately lost it. But she proved her point, she won the popular vote by 3 million ballots. So, not everything was lost to her.

    Actually, the People’s Temple used Flavor-Aid, not Kool-aid in the mass suicide

    I guess she doesn’t understand that people didn’t want 4 more years of Obama
  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    More people did not vote and the ones that did vote, voted for her; so more did want her and the electoral college failed America again.
  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    YES! the Flavor-Aid company went bankrupt in the aftermath

    keep fooling yourself billybob..trump will be gone by the summer…this little experiment with trump has failed
  • Donald Peters's profile photo
    Clinton was a flawed candidate and the Dems offered nothing but “hope and change”, which everyone knew really meant “hope is a four letter word just like shit – so Eat Shit and Die!”.

    Stay in the woods Hillary you blew it.
  • Peter Sr.'s profile photo
    No, now go away!
  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    But better than anything the Republicans were running. The Dems needed to move forward from Obama and not back to Pale Males.
  • Can anyone even name another election year, where this many months in, people paid attention to the party also rans?
  • And the apathetic who didn’t vote in the USA and Brexit are enablers of evil and not bystanders.
