Madam Speaker, I focused some of my attention on that issue because it is important that those who are following the debate understand where the NDP members have come from. At the end of the day, they did not support the legalization of cannabis. Now, to overcompensate, they have come up with expungement and are trying to come across as if they are championing something, which is just not right.
This is a government that not only brought in the legalization of cannabis but that is dealing with it in an appropriate way through a pardon system. I believe that a vast majority of Canadians understand that and support it. People should realize that as much as the NDP has tried to stand on a high pedestal at times, in this case, there is no pedestal to stand on.
Madame la Présidente, je me suis attardé sur cet aspect de la question parce que je veux que les gens qui suivent le débat comprennent la position des néo-démocrates. Ils étaient contre la légalisation du cannabis. Aujourd’hui, pour se rattraper, ils en font trop en proposant la radiation des infractions et, en plus, ils essaient de se faire passer pour les champions de la cause. C’est le monde à l’envers.
Le gouvernement actuel a non seulement fait adopter une loi pour légaliser le cannabis, mais il propose aujourd’hui un système de pardon pour traiter de façon appropriée les condamnations pour possession simple. Je suis convaincu qu’une grande majorité de Canadiens sont d'accord. Le NPD a beau essayer de se placer sur un piédestal, aujourd’hui, il n’a même pas de piédestal.
