|Name||Michael James Baldasaro|
|Election||Federal Election 2011|
|Party||Marijuana Party of Canada|
|Bio||I have been running for Office since 1984, when Supreme Court Justice Nicholas Borkovich, dismissed my constitutional challenge to Canada’s Marijuana Laws and found me guilty of trafficking, a ”small amount” of Cannabis. Judge Borkovich ruled that constitutional changes to Federal Legislation must be made by Parliament.
Judge Borkovich basically sentenced me to challenge Canada’s Marijuana Regulations in Ottawa and for this I need your help.
The Marijuana Plant, Hemp or CANVAS, as its cloth was known and grown by farmers, throughout II World Wars, will revitalize our economy, make us independent and set us free from rising food and fuel prices.
Marijuana can clothe and feed our families. It will create jobs for everyone from farmers to sewing machine operators and all those in-between!
Today, Marijuana provides proven medicinal relief for suffers of glaucoma, lupus and chronic pain syndrome, to mention only a few.
We could grow, process and distribute Medicinal Marijuana, right here, to Patients whose Doctors prescribe it, rather than forcing them out on the streets.
I am not just talking about an old / new solution to some of our conundrums.
Sure, jobs are important, however, we must pay off our national debt and stop deficit spending or we will bankrupt our Children’s and Countries futures.
We don’t need to spend 147 million per fighter jet, and we are buying 65!!! We need to feed our hungry and house our poor!
We don’t need a war in Afghanistan. We need our Soldiers home to protect our borders from illicit intrusion.
We are not the Worlds Police and we cannot afford to send our youngsters to other countries to kill, uninvited.
This Country is run by dysfunctional people.
I ask for your support.
Please send me to Ottawa to solve these problems 4 ONE and 4 all.
Thank you in advance for your VOTE!
In closing, we may not agree on everything, but there is one thing we all can agree on and I ask you to join me in showing our love for our Country and sing our National Anthem!
Our home and native land
True patriot love in all of us command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide,
O Canada we stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free
O Canada we stand on guard for thee
O Canada we stand on guard for thee
Responses to Questions (top)
|Question||Brief Response||Full Response|
|Will your party take steps to make sure the foreign purchase of Canadian companies does not cost Canadian jobs? If so, what will you do? If not, why not?||Yes||Yes. Neither I nor my Party will form the government, that much is obvious. However, I can promise everyone one thing and that is, that I will urge that every purchase of Canada be combined with an agreement thereto which would be rigorously prosecuted. The so-called-big parties that talk the talk but, in the end, have to walk the Party Line and as history evidenced. Few will cross the line to think Independently.|
|Will you always vote along party lines, or are you prepared to vote your conscience on a matter in which you disagree with your party's position?||No||No. It is the people of the Riding I will serve. Ultimately, I firmly believe that in order to have a true Democracy everyone would have to vote Independent. Abolish political parties. The mice have to learn to vote for mice and stop voting for the big fat Black Cats (the Conservatives), big fat White Cats (the Liberals) and the big fat Spotted Cats (the NDP). Refer: "Mouseland" by Tommy Douglas http://www.iamm.com/mouseland.htm|
|The House of Commons Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage has recommended that CBC's annual parliamentary grant be raised from $33 per Canadian to $40. Will you support this recommendation? Why or why not? If so, will you advocate for a Hamilton-based CBC radio station?||Yes||Yes I will support the recommendation to raise CBC's annual parliamentary grant from $33 per Canadian to $40.00.
I agree to this because Canadians need an independent voice, but it must reflect the voice of the Canadian People and not just the Canadian Government. It has to be a two way communication.
Yes I will advocate for a Hamilton-based CBC radio station, however, a designated portion of that above mentioned $40.00 must be put into the Hamilton Community. You don't just take our money and run.
|Do you believe human activity is contributing to climate change? If so, what should we do about it? If not, why not?||No||No. Volcanoes and manure alone contribute to global warming more than we can ever hope to effect. May I suggest watching "The Great Global Warming Swindle" @ http://www.garagetv.be/video-galerij/blancostemrecht/The_Great_Global_Warming_Swindle_Documentary_Film.aspx|
|Do you believe parliamentary rule has been eroding in Canada? If so, what will you do to reverse it? If not, why not?||Yes||Yes. Parliament continually passes laws that the Courts have found unconstitutional. This is proof that Parliament is not doing its job. Perhaps there should be a means test, at least one a Candidate could point to as having passed? One that includes Charter Rights and Government Rules and Regulations etc.|
|Do you support Vrancor's attempt to remove heritage protection from 150 Main Street West (the old Revenue Canada building)? Why or why not?||No||No. This is one of the few remaining heritage buildings we have left in Hamilton. If it is structurally sound it should be used for housing, health and/or other uses.|
|Do you believe the Federal Government needs to do more to support cities? If so, what needs to change? If not, why not?||Yes||Yes, I believe the federal government needs to do more to support our cities.
First of all, the federal government has to start carrying their load in the justice system. They chain our cities with handcuffs and leg irons and with their expensive regulations and rules, quite often unconstitutional. And then, they fail to finance the work.
If the federal arm of the government is going to demand we perform certain services in our community they must fund them.
|Will your platform promote the growth of manufacturing jobs in Hamilton? If so, how? If not, why not?||Yes||Yes. Just think of the jobs farming Marijuana/Hemp will bring into the area. Spinning Mills, fuel depots and manufacturing of farm equipment specifically tailored to this Industry and the medical equipment, supply and distribution of Doctor Prescribed Medicinal Marijuana. Let's breathe the life back into Hamilton and make farm machines that feed us, right here in the Hammer! Wouldn't it be nice to bring back our Civic pride in the Stelco Tower and refill it with the riches of this ready-set-go Industry and think of the tax dollars it will bring into the G.H.A., the "Greater Hamilton Area" or as Mayor Bob Bratina referred to it during the Mayoralty Debate of 2010 at McMaster University as "THE GREATER HEMP AREA".|
|Will you call for a full public inquiry into the 2010 G20? Why or why not?||Yes||Yes. Because we the people want to know and have full accountability.|
|Do you believe the Federal Government is doing everything it can to complete the cleanup of Randle Reef? Why or why not?||No||No. Randal Reef is not a clean-up. It's a land grab. Back-filling the Bay to create land on the grounds of past pollution is not a clean-up. It's a Hide-up!|
|Do you support some form of proportional representation instead of first-past-the-post voting? If so, what will you do to promote it? If not, why not?||Yes||Yes. I will do all I can to promote more and equal representation at all levels of government.|
|Please explain how the Prime Minister and cabinet are formed in the Canadian Parliamentary system.||Yes||Prime Minister is Leader of the Elected Majority and the Prime Minister selects the Cabinet. They all take an oath to obey the Queen. As it stands now http://www.mapleleafweb.com/features/prime-minister-cabinet-canada elected officials are forced to swear allegiance to Her Majesty The Queen, Her Just Laws and Courts. To not agree to those terms one would not able to serve. It's time Canada's Prime Minister and Cabinet were sworn "by the people, for the people and of the people". Canada For Canadians First!|
|Do you believe global oil production is at or near an historic peak? If so, what will your party do to prepare Canada for declining oil production? If not, why not?||Yes||Yes. Turn to our farmers to grow hemp/marijuana just like we did for the war efforts to fuel our vehicles, cook with and keep our lanterns full.|
