One joint too many?


I was astounded by the letter submitted to Nunatsiaq News by the Marijuana Party Candidate for Ottawa South.

How can you compare a society to a race of people?

So someone said “dope candidate.” Is that a racial comment, such as “Eskimo rag” is?

Does the society eat, sleep and breath like the Inuit? My sober thought tells me no, so how can you draw comparisons between the two?

A pejorative descriptor like “dope candidate” (derogatory term as its more commonly known) can one day be reclaimed and worn with “honor.” I sure as hell doubt “Eskimo rag” will ever evolve to such.
