WENDAKE, QC, Aug. 16, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - The Canadian Prime Minister should come back to Earth and see the effects of legalization of cannabis as our Nations will live it, "said Ghislain Picard in response to Justin Trudeau's comments responding to the concerns of Grand Chief Serge Simon from Kanesatake.
"Grand Chief Simon is absolutely right in saying that the means that First Nations have to prepare for the implementation of the Act do not match the needs at all," says Ghislain Picard, who says the AFNQL has requested that the adoption of the Act be postponed, to allow communities to be more adequately prepared.
The AFNQL fully supports Grand Chief Serge Simon's position and asks the Prime Minister to demonstrate what he is stating.
