Dr. Robert Kamermans was brave enough to sign exemptions for cannabis. He helped thousands of patients who had no other alternative. Will you help him right now?
Now the government is prosecuting him. The Preliminary Trial Court Date was the Belleville Court House will be on March 17th, 2014. This is also St. Patricks Day. St. Patrick drove all the snakes out of Ireland and just maybe He will drive all the vermin out of the court room.You can find out some more details here on his facebook page. In line with our hard-core position, we've been helping out. After his previous lawyer dumped him (lots of money spent) and he was denied legal coverage, we introduced Robert & Mary to a wonderful lawyer Davin Charney. At this point we would like to appeal to the public and the medical patients who support this issue.
My understanding is that Rob & Mary are planning on defending themselves in court.
Our opinion is that the government is sending a very clear message of fear to the medical community. Along with the position that the College of Physicians & Surgeons have taken, we believe that the maze and hurdles are going to get worse. Although Health Canada and the RCMP claim their changes (to the court mandated MMAR) are designed to improve the process and protect patients, It will not. The vast majority of doctors across the country will not sign an exemption. Under the new "regulations" we see even fewer physicians willing to 'recommend' cannabis. The government, Health Canada and the College will sanction doctors; destroy their practice, seize funds, arrest a doctor and his nurse, press charges and install an injunction against signing any medical forms for cannabis. I can't imagine very many physicians willing to run the risk.
Does this sound a little crazy to you? We are organizing a defense fund for Rob & Mary. Donate a little ~ it will help a lot. Please send some assistance:

Wallaston Council supports Dr. Kamermans http://www.bancroftthisweek.com/2012/07/31/wollaston-council-supports-kamermans
What I believe would be most appropriate is eleven multi-million dollar lawsuits, filed province by province.... just to get their attention. Name all of the prohibitionists involved in this travesty of justice and bring them into court. Individually, personally and severally ~ as the phrase goes, under their commercial liability according to the Supreme Court of Canada.
