Reading the piece from CBC’s Mark Gollom titled “Marc Emery, the prince of pot, may be a liability for the Liberals” a couple things jumped out at me:
Emery already had claimed a certain pot-related history with Trudeau, having once said in a video that he had smoked pot with Trudeau up to five times. Trudeau denied the story, saying he had met Emery once but didn’t smoke during their encounter. Emery later admitted what he said was wrong. (see here)
This leaves the impression that Emery recanted which is not true according to Marc Emery’s wife Jodie:
You’ll also notice that Gollom didn’t mention Marc Emery had called Trudeau a “Fucking hypocrite” over this:
I’ve asked Gollom if he was aware of these details before writing his story and will update if he responds.
