Libby calls on Justice Minister to stop extradition of Marc Emery

September 28, 2009

The Honourable Rob Nicholson
Minister of Justice
105 East Block
House of Commons
Ottawa, ON
K1A 0A6

Dear Minister Nicholson,

I write once again to ask that you stop the extradition of Canadian Marc Emery to the United States and allow him to serve his prison sentence in Canada.

Canadian law enforcement officials have for a decade ignored Mr. Emery’s well publicized activities. I have expressed to you on many occasions my vehement opposition to sending Mr. Emery or any Canadian to face harsh punishment in another country when we have agreed as a society that these actions are not worthy of prosecution in Canada. Yet, your government has refused to intervene on Mr. Emery’s behalf and he will now serve a five year prison term in the United States.

It is my understanding that the United States government will allow Mr. Emery to remain in Canada to serve his sentence if the Government of Canada agrees. I therefore urge you to act in best the interest of this Canadian citizen and in the interest of Canadian sovereignty and allow Mr. Emery to serve his sentence in Canada.

I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible on this urgent matter.

Sincerely,

Libby Davies, MP
Vancouver East
NDP Spokesperson for Drug Policy

Cc: The Right Honourable Stephen Harper, Prime Minister

thank you very much for supporting Marc Emery. At least not all of our politicans are spineless cowards

Marc knew exactly what he was doing. He picked a fight with the 'biggest kid on the block' and lost. This "looser" sold-out his country by stating that, 'borders are imaginary lines'. Marc, the bars on in the prison are just 'imaginary', don't worry about it. You're a big boy now, suck it up. You'll be a changed man from all of this! Maybe even smarter, maybe.

Minister of Justice?

As registered lobbyists with the Commissioner of Lobbying of Canada, Vancouverforesight.ca is asking the Minister of Justice, Robert Nicholson why "gang insurgents" are given 'carte blanche' passage over our borders and ports?
Our borders and ports are breached day and night by "narco-terrorist drug and gun smugglers from the U.S.A., gang style executions and shoot-outs and more illegal drugs saturating our streets" and all Libby Davies can think about is some "self centered fool". What about the rest of us Canadians, Libby? Who is he to you, anyway?

Libby, we 'look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible on this "very" urgent matter'!

marc emry

he is another canadian, just like you. He made a mistake, and is being punished most unfairly

Marc Emery, Google Street

Marc Emery, Google Street View, Port Huron/Sarnia Spy Ballon. How many more time are Canadians going to let this government strip our Charter of Rights and Freedoms?

I feel a great embarrassment to reside from the same city as that American Nicholson. He has destroyed Niagara Falls turning into a tacky tourist town overrun by mafia goons. Now he has sights on destroying my country.
