In accordance with the rules governing incidents of politicians coming into such trouble, the Edmonton Journal digs up the anti-drug attack ad run by Rahim Jaffer’s campaign during the last election.
“Jack Layton and the Ottawa NDP have publicly supported the legalization of marijuana. In fact when asked about marijuana Jack Layton called it a wonderful substance which Canadians should be free to smoke at home or in a cafe. Edmontonians understand how difficult it is to make sure our children make the right choices especially on serious issues like drug use. The Conservative Party supports drug free schools and getting tough with drug dealers who sell illegal drugs to children. Don’t let our schools go up in smoke..on October 14th vote Conservative. Authorized by the official agent for Rahim Jaffer.”
A close of friend of Jaffer’s insists he will be proven not guilty of the charges against him.
