Libby calls for Marc Emery’s transfer to a Canadian prison

NDP deputy leader Libby Davies, Liberal public safety critic Wayne Easter and Green MP Elizabeth May all spoke out at the morning press conference, held to encourage federal safety minister Steven Blaney to sign the required paperwork for Emery’s transfer home...Davies, who has been involved in the case since the beginning, said she was also disturbed by the very “political” comments that reportedly came from the minister’s office. “This press conference is not about the war on drugs, it is about a Canadian, who has been cleared by U.S. to return home,” said Davies. “I think it is better for Mr. Emery and his family to be here.”
