Doug Ford on legal pot and gun control
I don't like Doug Ford for obvious reasons. His brother was an abusive drunk and a chronic crack addict while Doug stood right beside him. I have no problem with him being a right wing conservative. I have a problem with him being a wing nut. However, as I keep saying, although no two people agree on every issue, likewise no two people disagree on every issue either.
I agree with Doug Ford's administration of legalized pot. As we know, I didn't support legalization, I supported decriminalization. However, since legalization is upon us, I support the free market. In Ontario, Doug Ford has handed over distribution of legal pot to the private sector and I agree with that move. I'm not sure why he would slash the number of Toronto city councilors by half but privatized pot is good for everyone. Privatized power is not. I support public power.
I do NOT agree with Doug Ford's position on gun control. I believe in the New York Model for crime reduction and the Swiss Model for gun control. I do not believe in the Amsterdam model for crime promotion and Hitler's model for gun control. Implementing the New York crime reduction model is the most effective way to deal with gang and gun violence known to man. Although I didn't like Stephen Harper, I totally agreed with his elimination of the long gun registry.
