ALERT: Major Canadian Newspaper
Criticizes Drug Prohibition

The Ottawa Citizen, one of the largest circulation papers in Canada, and the main newspaper in Canada's capital, published a series of four editorials (April 12-16, 1997) strongly criticizing the criminal prohibition of drugs. The editorials call for alternative measures to deal with drugs in society.

You can see the editorials at the Canadian Foundation for Drug Policy web site: http://fox.nstn.ca/~eoscapel/cfdp/citizen.html.

Individuals and organizations -- in Canada or elsewhere -- who support the thrust of the editorials, are encouraged to write to The Ottawa Citizen stating their support.

Letters to the editor may be sent by e-mail to letters@thecitizen.southam.ca, or by fax to (613) 596-8458.

In both cases, the letter must include the full name of the writer, the writer's address and a phone number, to allow verification of the letter.

For more information on the Canadian Foundation for Drug Policy, call (613) 236-1027, fax (613) 238-2891, or visit http://fox.nstn.ca/~eoscapel/cfdp/cfdp.html on the web.
