Editor’s note: Marilyn Gladu has been a very vocal opponent of the government’s plan to legalize marijuana next July.
The Conservative MP from Sarnia-Lambton broadened her attack on Dec. 1 when she read the following poem in the House of Commons.
I want to protest an ill thought-out bill,
that is passing through parliament here on the hill.
The bill that is bad is called C-45,
it has so many flaws it just shouldn’t survive.
The Grits will allow four pot plants in each dwelling,
regardless of how bad each place will be smelling.
With mould, ventilation, as issues unplanned,
this bill will not keep pot from our children’s hand.
There are more new infractions within this new rule,
that our courts will be flooded, as will every school.
With drug-impaired driving and challenges there,
the doubling of traffic deaths, and Liberals don’t care.
The provinces and police in every town
have all asked the liberals to slow this bill down.
With nearly 200 days left ‘til the day,
nobody but our party stands in the way.
We hope that the senate will do it’s true deed,
and keep our great country safe from all the weed.”
