The Reverend Brothers…

go to Osgoode Hall:

The Supreme Court of Canada/La court suprême du Canada has dismissed an application for leave to appeal the convictions of reverend Michael Baldasaro and Reverend Wally Tucker of the Church of the Universe. The church’s founders were found guilty of selling “small quantities of pot to an undercover officer,” which they consider a sacrament.image006

That’s the newsy bit out of the way. The Church of the Universe is a bit of a legend in these parts. Officially considered a big pain in the ass wherever they go, the Reverend Brothers, Baldasarro 77 and Tucker 61 just finished five and three-month prison terms respectively, got chased out of Guelph and set up shop in an old foundry here in Cambridge back in the 90’s. Curtis Gloade at the K-W Record penned a piece in 1998 about Cambridge’s attempts to move the practitioners out of town.

I have met both men, having shared gym facilities with the pair during their Cambridge stay. I’m trying to fathom the vast amounts of money spent in police, court time, lawyers fees and various appeals in order to give a combined eight-month jail term to two harmless old men.

Conservatives will remember Reverend Michael as a leadership candidate in 1998 for the federal PC’s. Sadly, Joe Clark won instead and the party became a laughingstock.

For more background, read this 1999 piece from Cannabis Culture Magazine and remember, thousands and thousands of dollars were spent to send these two fools to prison for eight-months. Somethings not right.

John Tory Loses

March 6th, 2009

As the following image shows, John Tory did not get beaten last night in Haliburton—Kawartha Lakes—Brock, he flat out lost. A full third of his voters stayed home (thanks to Right From Alberta for the graphic).


It is long past time for John Tory to resign as leader of the Ontario PC party, but he must now do so immediately.
