Stephen Harper once said, "Do I look like a person who smoked marijuana."

Well, no, Stephen, you don't. You're the man.

Marc Emery had been around for years, decades, going on doing what 
Marc Emery did.

He wound up as a spokesman, on the edge. And he was, by de facto, 
condoned by society and a well-established part of the Canadian 
social fabric. Then came Harper.

What the Harper government did to Mr. Emery, as I see it, stank. Mr. 
Harper, in my opinion, stepped in this one, not Marc Emery.
