END THE DRUG WAR

THE GLOBAL WAR ON DRUGS HAS BEEN A DISASTER AND IT IS TIME TO STOP IT

#FREETOCHOOSE

When the government tries to tell us what we should consume, there are no limits. Sugar and chocolate bars could be slapped with extra taxes or mandated to be plain packaged just as much as alcohol or cigarettes. And it just doesn’t work. A detailed study by London Economics on the introduction of plain packaging in Australia in 2013 revealed there has been “no statistically significant change in smoking prevalence among adult Australians” since it was mandated. Individuals can make better decisions about their own lives. No nanny needed.

"The lifestyle choices people make before the nanny state gets involved are the choices they want to make. They are the choices that give them maximum benefit. After the nanny state gets involved, they are forced to either settle for their second or third choice, or to pay more and get less benefit from their preferred choice." - Chris Snowdon, Institute of Economic Affairs

Laws which tell businesses how long they can be open are well-intentioned but actually do more harm than good. An article in the Journal of Health Economics analyzed the liberalization of closing times for pubs in England and Wales in 2005 and found that letting bars stay open much later caused traffic accidents to significantly decrease. Accidents on Friday and Saturday nights decreased by 32.5 percent. Rather than being forced onto the roads after a night at the pub because the state mandates a closing time, drinkers can take their time and responsibly get home when they’re ready. No nanny needed

Whether it’s video games, alcohol, sex, gambling, eating, or even laughing, the government thinks it knows best. But Canada’s young people don’t need a nanny and don’t need the state to run their lives and tell them which activity is fun and which isn’t. Legalize choice. No nanny needed.

The government has a bad track record when it comes to telling people what they can, and can't do, with their own bodies. Should we let the government tell us what we can or can't eat? Absolutely not. Adults should be #FreeToChoose.

EVER MORE FREQUENTLY, MORE LAWS ARE PASSED WHICH LIMIT OUR INDIVIDUAL FREEDOMS

This is true for our consumer behavior as much as our personal behavior, regulating what we can buy, sell, consume, eat, drink, smoke, vape, gamble, and much more.

This puts products like meat and sugar in the same category as tobacco and alcohol, and reduces our capacity for choice at the behest of the Nanny State.

That's why we say #NoNanny. Adults should be #FreeToChoose

HAVE YOUR VOICE HEARD







Email Review:

Dear ,

I am writing you today to express my concern at the rise of the nanny state and lifestyle regulations. I am deeply concerned that government is going too far in regulating what Canadians can consume. Many of these policies and regulations trample on individual rights, limit consumer choice, and simply don’t work.

Whether it is fat taxes, sugar taxes, plain packaging or advertising bans, I hope that you, as my MP, can stand up for adult decisions, and oppose legislation that infantilizes adults. Thank you very much for taking the time to read my email. I hope that my voice, and the voice of other citizens, is heard and represented in .

Sincerely,

Need assistance with this form?
