Dear Editor: The law is the law. In Canada, the law is the law until the law, through parliament, actually changes. In theory, if one breaks the law, there should be consequences that follow. As we all know, many times laws are broken and the consequences have been "of little or no consequence where the bleeding heart court system seems to show sympathy to would be offenders." There seems to be little or no consistency in many court proceedings.

Our illustrious Prime Pinister Justin Trudeau made a pre-election grandstand announcement that he and his government would legalize marijuana if and when he was elected. He was elected as we all know and yet there has been little if anything put forth in the way of fulfilling his pre-election promise. The rhetoric from him has been that there are several issues that need to be studied before legislation will be happening. In other words, it is not a cut and dried issue.

To start with, we need to see what the meaning of omnipotence is.

Quote from a legal source dictionary: "The quality of having unlimited or very great power." There are several other synonyms that can be used in place of omnipotence. Some of these are: "all-powerfulness, almightiness, supremacy, pre-eminence, supreme power, absolute power, unlimited power; invincibility."

Where am going with this, you might ask? Somehow the word and its relatives apply to city council in some of its dealings as of late. I am waiting to hear that they will be inviting all of us down to one of the lakes to show us that they can, in fact, walk on water without getting their feet wet.

Dear editor:

Council is at it again. At what you might ask? Council seems to be setting precedents everywhere. The Prime Minister is in trouble as City of Penticton is on the loose. This is shown by council's decision to issue temporary

business licenses to marijuana purveyors.

Before I go any further and for those who are ardent marijuana advocates, I will clarify my stance on the subject.

This is my personal opinion and only my personal opinion on the issue. I am not totally against marijuana use for anyone else (except youngsters and small children).
