Dear Mr. Toews

Re: Marc Scott Emery Repatriation

Please approve Marc Emery’s request to be repatriated and let him serve the rest of his time in the Canadian Correctional System, in his own country where he belongs.

Marc Scott Emery is a Canadian activist, politician and business man who is serving time in an American Prison, sentenced to five years for selling cannabis seed. This is a crime that in Canada would have resulted in a fine of under a thousand dollars but, because he sold his seeds to Americans over the internet he was investigated in Canada, charged and consequently extradited by American authorities.

Facing the possibility of living out his natural life in American prison system, Marc reached a plea agreement of five years with American prosecutors. He was sentenced September 12 to five years. The judge who sentenced him, recommended that he be returned to Canada to serve the remainder of his time in the Canadian Correctional system.

I am writing this letter to request that you transfer Marc back to the Canadian Correctional system as soon as possible so that he will be closer to family and friends, most notably his wife Jodie, who currently is accruing great expense travelling back and forth to the USA to visit him.

I understand that Marc has applied to be repatriated back to the Canadian Correctional system.

Marc Emery is not a threat to Canadian security. He has followed all the conditions of his bail during the last five years as he was waiting to be extradited to the United States. He has promised to not re-offend or violate conditions of his parole once released.

I can’t think of a single reason for you to deny his request to return home.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
