Editor, The News:

Thank you so much for your wonderful story and coverage of Fraser Valley MP 
Chuck Strahl's debate on marijuana.

As one can see, I was successful in forcing the medical issue at the debate 
and was met with overwhelming support (90 per cent).

I had a long meeting with Chuck over the issues we covered in your story 
and my personal case. He was blown away by the government's failure with 
medical marijuana. He agreed to take my issues directly to Health Minister 
Anne McLennan.

Yesterday, I received an e-mail from him in Ottawa, stating that he had 
already spoken with her and she would be responding in writing to us. I 
believe your story and this three-pronged attack - protesting, court 
actions and parliamentary intervention - will produce the results that all 
sick Canadians need and deserve.

Brian Carlisle, Chilliwack
