If Harper Is Re-Elected, He Pledges Another $27,000,000 To Fight Cannibas Grow Ops ..
“We just think that’s the wrong direction for society and I don’t think that’s the way most Canadians want to deal with this particular problem.”
The tough-on-drugs message is one the Conservatives have been using for months to drive a wedge between Harper and his opponents — most particularly the Liberals and leader Justin Trudeau.
On Monday, Harper told party faithful the opposition parties want to legalize marijuana and prostitution, and make it easier to have supervised injection sites — all of which Harper said his party opposed.
The Conservatives promised Tuesday that, if re-elected, they would spend almost $27 million a year to help the RCMP root out drug labs and change the focus of the national mental health commission that it created in 2007.
The campaign pledge would see an extra $4.5 million per year, on top of the $22 million currently budgeted, for an RCMP team designed to crack down on illegal drug labs and marijuana grow-ops."
