The Saskatchewan Marijuana Party is pleased to announce that we are running five candidates in the provincial election. 


Nathan Holowaty                                  Saskatoon Centre

Mike Kereiff                                           Saskatoon Riversdale

Christine King                                        Saskatoon Nutana

Tom Shapiro                                          Regina Coronation Park 

Tom Shapiro is running for the Saskatchewan Marijuana Party in Regina, Coronation Park Riding. Tom, originally from Ontario, has spent some years in Vancouver seeking treatment for AIDS, and finally settled in Regina for the last decade with his new wife, also of Regina, Sask.


Tom Shapiro is alive today because of marijuana. When Tom was diagnosed, AIDS was killing its victims.  Today, with a host of medications including marijuana, Tom is still alive and kicking.


“Marijuana is a plant that has been used as medicine for thousands of years,” says Tom, “and for all that time, marijuana abuse was never a problem.  Now sick people are denied their medicine due to our governments fear of something that never was!”


Tom holds a Health Canada license for medical marijuana, but that doesn’t stop the harassment he receives. He must reapply for his license every year and every year there is some new challenge.  “Why would we trouble sick people?  Get out of the way and let them live their lives,” says Tom. Tom takes a serious look at our Health care system as well as the war on drugs and believes changes are needed in both areas.


AIDS is not the only condition helped by marijuana.  “Health Canada will give licenses for multiple sclerosis and terminal cancer,” says Tom, “but they sure drag their feet about it – and terminal illnesses are not the only conditions that improve with the use of marijuana. Migraine, Crohn’s Disease, irritable bowel, chronic pain, and spastic paraplegia are a few of the conditions that can be treated with marijuana.”


Time has come to stop the farce of the war on marijuana.  More than 70,000 Canadians will be arrested this year, and for what?  Here in Saskatchewan we should protect our citizens from this nonsense.  There is simply no evidence that any of the money wasted on prohibition has done anything to reduce problem drug use: on the contrary, prohibition makes things worse.


A vote for Tom Shapiro is a vote for a safer, healthier world.
