No-cost, expedited pardons for cannabis possession
Feb 27, 2019
Later today, the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, Ralph Goodale, will give notice of a bill to provide no-cost, expedited pardons for simple possession of cannabis.
On October 17, 2018, the Government announced its intention to table legislation which, when enacted, will allow individuals who were previously convicted only for simple possession of cannabis to immediately apply for a pardon, as long as they have completed their sentence.
