Candidate Recruitment Campaign
I am going out of my living room! I participate, and I encourage others to see their vote alone is not sufficient, because it limits their effective participation. To go public towards confrontation with lying authorities. To thwart the social paralysis which affects too many.
During different election campaigns, bad habits wait passively in our living rooms to do nothing more than watch the news distort their stories about our real elections.
Even if you are not involved in politics, politics still will be involved against you.
I believe that it is vitally necessary to leave our living rooms in order to engage in politics actively within the public space, to resist that space becoming more and more privatized and monopolized by those who own and control the mass media. It is relatively easy and may be amusing for a socially active person to assist in applying some political pressure that may embarrass our political managers.
I invite you to leave your living room, and to occupy your public space. At the time of the next elections, act boldly with us against prohibition and the entire system presented against you!
Call me at (514) 528-1768 or (418) 686-5482, or send me an email.
Hugô St-Onge, Bloc Pot Leader
Levels of participation in an election by Bloc Pot candidates:
• A voluntary candidate is a person willing to represent the party by getting their name and the party name to be printed on a ballot paper in their riding to allow the population of that district to vote for our alternative. A voluntary candidate has only volunteered to take a few minimum steps necessary to become officially nominated. They are not committed to campaigning beyond the close of nominations deadline.
• A militant candidate is a voluntary candidate who engages in their region to campaign after the nominations close, with activities such as the distribution of leaflets, or organization of informational meetings about pot prohibition politics.
• A committed candidate is a voluntary candidate, who is committed in their district and region to take part in local debates and to work for a bigger electoral campaign.
Requirements to become a Bloc Pot Candidate
First of all, you have to be an elector. An elector is a Canadian citizen that has lived for more than six months in Quebec and is over 18 years old at voting time.
You fill in your nomination papers, make your required photographs, and collect at least 100 signatures from electors that live in your electoral district, by going through public spaces to get at least 100 electors to sign your nomination papers to enable you to enjoy your right to become an election candidate. Electors who sign nomination papers do not have to vote for you, but are only agreeing to enable you and our party name to appear on the election ballots, so that voters may make the choice to vote for you. The main focus of our election campaign is that voters have the choice to vote for you.
Become a spokesperson for the cannabis cause and enjoy your right of direct democracy by becoming officially nominated. I encourage you to cause political debates to happen! The Bloc Pot seeks to bury the presumptions that built the entire system of prohibition.
The Bloc Pot, more than a party
To end prohibition means greater consumer control and consumer protection, for all, particularly for young people. It would aid the rebirth of more industrial cannabis for fibre, food and all the other benefits from the wonderful pot plant’s potential.
To bury the prohibitionist system indicates our will to organize our collective life to resist what has gone wrong in our fake democracy, where morbid social habits created by huge lies, backed up with coercion from governments, have triumphed to make the single best plant for people for food, fibre & fun become treated as if marijuana was almost murder.
Prohibition is a magnifying glass of all the things wrong with our society, which is more of a fascist plutocracy than a free and democratic society. We now have government by money, for money & by money that told huge lies which benefited a few, but hurt many. Pot prohibition demonstrates how and why current institutions are truly not legitimate. The Bloc Pot actions direct our questioning and push us to act as consequence.
A Green Rhino Party!
The Bloc Pot is Quebec’s real green party. Cannabis cultivation should have always happened. All so-called green solutions make NO sense without more pot. Criminalizing cannabis cultivation was the worst single symptom of everything else that went wrong. Yet mere mockery is not enough now, it is time to short-circuit our apathy by becoming candidates or donating money.
Contribute Money to Bloc Pot!
By contributing money, you participate actively in our fight. You finance our Quebecois anti-prohibitionist green growing organization which promotes greater cannabis culture.
Joseph-Israel Tart, a 19th Century politician, said: “We do not win elections with prayers.”
And, as another governor said: “Two things are important at the time of the elections: the first is money and the second, I do not remember!”
