I was sure I read that it was banned or severely restricted in Saskatchewan a few years back. If I am wrong I am more than pleased to be corrected. Thank you.

AAah GawD; fusion. Now I'm off for another rum and coke and may have to go back to a desktop with separate keyboard if this keeps up.

I've already gone through two laptops due to nose gurgles from posts such as yours.

Great OP. Because what Canadians call "conservative" is absolutely laughable.
Harper didn't do anything much of substance at all. Sure, a few little tweaks around the edges, but that was all that he (or any one like him) could ever get away with in Canada.

Pass laws with stricter criminal penalties?

End same sex marriage?

Thanks
They pitched in with the international effort to stop muslim extremism, albeit from the air
They held their ground on conservative values when it comes to legal marijuana selling shops
They attempted to ensure that all Canadians adhere to and uphold traditional Canadian values (not political correct new immigrant values, but traditional Canadian)
They ensured that Quebec is supported by Alberta oil and attempted to increase that financial support through international trade routes for oil
They negotiated a trans-Pacific trade agreement where the only option to negotiate is to get in on the ground floor
They increased benefits for the middle class and seniors

... stuff like that

He upheld conservative Canadian values. The newly elected premier will uphold Canadian values as well, but this is a new generation of Canadian values. This new generation of Canadian values has marijuana legalized and available in the shops (perhaps a reaction from the teacher to the fact that his brother was in a fender bender, and the worst thing that happened related to the accident was the pot in his brother's car - if only it had been legalized!). The new generation also shuns the traditional cowboy who removes his hat when he enters anything related to the courts. Instead, he values women from other cultures who not only want to wear a hat, but also a neck scarf across the nose. In old Canada, that would be viewed as a bandit, but not today; not with the new Canadian values. That's just for starters ... but hey, I know nothing - just a passive observer. Today is a "keep your hat on in Church, in the courtroom, and at Citizenship ceremonies, and pull that neck scarf up over your nose if you want ... because traditional Canadian values apparently have no value anymore - say the people.

C'mon Lieneke talk about a bunch of drama.. The fact is the 'traditional' values you are referring to are going the way of the dodo bird.. There was a time 100 years ago whereby even 'traditional' values of that period probably would have made even you feel like a prisoner in a cage.. Societies change and evolve, people learn and interact and grow. Ultimately, people will do what they want to do, whether its smoke a joint (legal or not most people have smoked one in their life at some point and many do it regularly), have sex with a member of the same sex, decide that they don't want to live their final days in pain and suffering and decide to exit this world on their own terms, or wear something over their head and face for a billion reasons.

As much as Conservatives tend to stick to this notion that conservative governments stays out of our affairs - 'traditional' conservative values seem to always get right into our affairs like an annoying in law coming to visit unannounced on the weekend and going through the drawer and throwing out a joint they find in the dresser because they are the arbiter of justice and what is righteous - pfffft.
