We have Trudeau in now and according to Bill Blair, marijuana use is going to be decriminalized, but strictly regulated.
If you live in a society where people elect a government that believes that recreational use of restricted drugs should be harshly punished
Just because you don't think the government has it right on drug use does not invalidate their policy, until they are voted out for a government that happens to agree with you.

He got my vote out of sheer spite. I hated the the conservative ads bashing him every other commercial it got sickening. The "nice hair thought" one I just hated it.
So there you go I voted from my heart not my brain. Work comment about George w Bush got me however. Kinda felt the same vibe myself but can't say way because I don't know why!
His father was one of our best Prime Ministers ever and was liked the world over. He should do well if he is a chip off the old block.
Funny that eh ? A document he nor the NDP read or wanted to . Cant say I blame them for not biting on Harpers offer but he is just like Harper as a opposite side of the same coin ...under a banner of a different colour .
The one thing about Trudeau that I really really don't like is his support of the TPP.
Starting with the observation that Blair didn't make cabinet? I think it's telling that you are going to 'monitor' the Liberals to trip them up, instead of taking a positive attitude and seeing what good might come of this new government. Tell me, is every Tory going to spend the next four years sitting in a corner, muttering, with their little notebook and pencil in hand?

I'm downloading every element of the Liberal Party campaign platform and will be monitoring their every move.
UNITED NATIONS, November 20. /TASS/. Third Committee of the UN General Assembly on Thursday adopted a resolution on measures against the glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that facilitate the escalation of modern forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and intolerance related to them.
A total of 126 member-states of the UN voted for the document and four countries — Canada, Palau, the US, and Ukraine — voted against it. Another 53 countries, including member-nations of the European Union abstained from voting.
As many as 115 countries voted for a similar resolution last year but three countries — Canada, Ukraine, and the US — voted against it.
OTTAWA - Canada appears poised to enter the Paris climate conference at the end of the month offering an emissions reduction target crafted by the previous federal government.
But unlike the Harper Conservatives, who were globally panned as climate laggards, Justin Trudeau's Liberals are being widely lauded, despite the absence of firm new policy measures.
Trudeau meets with Canada's provincial and territorial leaders Monday in Ottawa before heading to Europe for a week-long trip that culminates with the UN-sponsored COP21 in France. Indications so far suggest the Liberals will keep the same 2030 target for cutting Canadian greenhouse gas emissions by 30 per cent below 2005 levels that were announced by the Conservatives last May.
