"Time for Ottawa to get over its obsession with controlling the behaviour of law-abiding citizens," says federal Liberal leadership candidate in calling for taxation and regulation of cannabis
OTTAWA -- Call him the e-candidate.
George Takach, a Toronto technology lawyer and self-professed computer geek, is joining the federal Liberal leadership race, determined to drag the party -- and eventually the country -- into the 21st century.
Today I enter public life as a candidate for the leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada.
It's a decision I did not take lightly. My fellow candidates are hard-working men and women of integrity and passion, and I am privileged to share the stage with them.
Many people have asked me why I am running for the leadership without ever having run for office before. My answer is simple: sometimes our decisions are dictated to us by the times in which we live. I want to bring my deep leadership experience to the Liberal Party and the broader world of politics at a crucial time in our history.
