We, the undersigned, petition Mr. Vic Toews, Canada’s Public Safety Minister, to immediately approve Mr. Marc Emery’s application for a treaty transfer from the U.S. to Canada.
A media figure for marijuana and drug law reform, Mr. Emery is a Canadian citizen who carried out all his activities in Canada. His seed selling business never contracted any US-based employees, and no business was ever conducted on U.S. soil. Yet, when the Canadian government refused to charge or punish him, Mr. Emery was extradited to the United States to be punished under much harsher laws.
Therefore, we urge that you please grant Mr. Emery’s request for a prison transfer so that he at least may serve out the remainder of his sentence in Canada.
