We finish our special series on “The Big 5” promises of the Trudeau government with a look at marijuana legalization. Martin Stringer speaks with a panel of MPs, the Liberals’ point man on the issue, Bill Blair, and with Donald MacPherson, of the Canadian Drug Policy Coalition and Eugene Oscapella, a lawyer specializing in drug policy. Martin also speaks with journalists Gloria Galloway (The Globe and Mail) and Kady O’Malley (iPolitics).
Having covered the Canadian political scene for more than 25 years, Martin is as politically astute as he is savvy. He joined CPAC in 1996 and has covered leadership races, political conventions and federal elections, serving as PrimeTime Politics’ Hill correspondent daily and host of the show’s Friday edition. Martin began his career as a reporter for CBC Radio in Quebec City and also worked for seven years as national and international producer for CBC Radio’s flagship show, As It Happens.
