Typical subterfuge from marijuana advocate Speirs

Selective in his respect. He doesn’t offer it to Mike Morden and the citizens who don’t agree with him.

Editor, The News:

Re: Ridge councillor not pro pot (The News, Nov. 13, 2013)

Craig Speirs states, “I can tell you that signing this particular petition doesn’t mean your for or against any side of this issue.”

Typical subterfuge. I believe it’s safe to say that 100 per cent of those who sign the petition are for.

His comments regarding Mike Morden need addressing.

My political views differ from Mr. Morden but he is an elected councilor and Craig Speirs is a marijuana advocator whose party and himself failed in elections. He also writes regarding Pitt Meadows mayor not signing and Maple Ridge mayor signing,  “Both Mayors made their decisions as citizens and according to their own principals. I respect that.” Mr. Speirs is selective in his respect. He doesn’t offer it to Mike Morden and the citizens who don’t agree with him. A nightmare indeed.
