Canada Acting As Arm Of U.S. Drug War By Staying Charges, Lawyer Says

Posted on Monday, January 09 at 09:52 by jensonj
David McCann filed the charges last September, saying it would be hypocritical of Canada to participate in U.S. officials' efforts to prosecute Emery for activities condoned here for years. Tousaw said the extradition wouldn't have gone ahead if Emery, along with his co-accused, Michelle Rainey-Fenkarek and Greg Keith Williams, were prosecuted in Canada. "I'm concerned when our government acts as an arm of the U.S. drug war and has an opportunity to reassert Canadian sovereignty but refused to do so," Tousaw said. "I think all Canadians should be concerned about that."
