Everything you've ever wanted to know about the "True, North, Strong and Free!"
This documentary produced by The National Film Board of Canada and directed by Albert Nerenberg, discusses Canada's open (semi-socialist) views on Marijuana, Homosexuality, War and our general Rights and Freedoms.

This is an 8 part film, 80mins in Length. Comment and give your take on Canada.



Part 1 - Is Canada Boring?...or a Utopia of Freedom?

Part 2 - The Decriminalization of Marijuana

Part 3 - Vansterdam + Same-Sex Marriage

Part 4 - Reefer Refugees and Americans

Part 5 - So... Is it legal...or illegal?

Part 6 - War Resistors welcome here...A.W.O.L.

Part 7 - Legalize it... and tax the hell out of it. The Raids.

Part 8 - Bush's policies and the future of Canada.

To this Day Canada's marijuana laws are still loosely defined and up in the air. It is not uncommon to find people smoking in pubic spaces (whether that be in designated coffee shops, park benches or at the annual Marijuana March). Despite Stephen Harper's Conservative party gaining a minority government in 2006, Same-sex marriages are still legal in Canada. Marc Emery is currently working on a plea bargain with the U.S. government. A plea to serve 5 years in both U.S. and Canadian prisons as well as having the charges against his two fellow associates dropped has been entered by Emery. The plea has apparently dissolved due to negotiations between Canada and the US. The US would like Emery and associates to serve a minimum of 10 years in prison, while Canada believes that 1 month in jail and probation is an adequate enough sentence. The debate continues. It's likely that with Obama having taken office, and his interest in decriminalizing small amount of marijuana, Canadian leaders (with appropriate pressure) will get the ball rolling once again. Read this recent article on the legalization debate from the Globe and Mail.

I have seriously thought about moving to Toronto or Vancouver.

But then I think about all the super cold weather.

Portugal actually has the most lax drug laws in the world. You can't even be prosecuted for possession there.

SLICE magazine said... @ April 15, 2009 10:58 PM

lol... Well it's definitely not boring Karen.

It's not that cold either lol... Montreal is though. But Toronto's weather is on par with upstate NY's. Vancouver definitely isn't cold tough.. they've got beaches out west... and even palm trees in some parts. You should go out there.
