Thank you to Ryan Scott and Lisa Leger (Letters, March 16) and Scott
Harrison (Letters, March 14) for shedding some light on the marijuana

Mayor Lefebvre, it is great to be so law-abiding. I agree if you are
speaking about fair, reasonable,realistic laws. However, like our
marijuana laws, that should have made marijuana legal 30 years ago,
there are some unreasonable, unrealistic, unpopular laws that must be
disobeyed to cause change.

It is too bad that Rosa Parks could not come to discuss the issue with
you. I am sure that Rosa would understand Marc Emery and his wife and
many others suffering from the same discrimination. Do you think
residential school survivors would recommend obeying the power
establishment again? It was the law!

And the trumped up cleanliness charges to close the small business
here in Parksville? It was spotless when I was in there last week; I
finally found a balm I apply to my knees that has completely taken
away the lingering pain, and you close this small company down?
Thanks, mayor.
