All We Want Is To Have The Question On The Ballot !! "Should we legalize and/or decriminalize marijuana?"


As Canadian Citizens, we deserve the right to vote on all important issues.  In recent years, we have seen 40-45% of all eligible voters staying away from the polls.  True Democracy deserves full participation and a higher percentage of voters in the Civic, Provincial and Federal Elections.  This question needs to be on the election ballot, "Should we legalize and/or decriminalize marijuana?  FOR,  AGAINST, or  ABSTAIN."   Voter turnout at the polls is going to be 70% or more because those that are FOR it will come out to the polls and those AGAINST it will come out to the polls, and those who don't wish to see it on the ballot will equally have their say.  Isn't this what Democracy is about?

Letter to
Federal Justice Minister The Honourable Rob Nicholson
Justice Minister and Attorney General for Manitoba Honourable Andrew Swan
Mayor of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada Mayor Sam Katz
The Federal, Provincial and Civic Government,

I am in full agreement with this petition to put this very important question on our voting ballot and allowing us to express our opinion on what we want or do not want.

The central purpose of government in a democracy is to be the role model for, and protector of, equality and freedom and our associated human rights. The government of a democracy is also accountable to the people.

As Canadian Citizens, we deserve the right to vote on all important issues. In recent years, we have seen 40-45% of all eligible voters staying away from the polls. True Democracy deserves full participation and a higher percentage of voters engaged in the Civic, Provincial and Federal Elections. This question needs to be on the next voting ballot, "Should we legalize and/or decriminalize marijuana? FOR, AGAINST, or ABSTAIN." Voter turnout at the polls is going to be 70% or more because those that are FOR it will come out to the polls and those AGAINST it will come out to the polls, and those who don't wish to see it on the ballot will equally have their say. Isn't this what Democracy is about?

My support is only for the question to be put on the ballot and should NOT be inferred that I am in support or against this referendum.

Have a question?
