Brian Taylor is a fine fellow with a long history of cannabis activism.
Here's an article about his hemp activism and his election as mayor of Grand Forks the first time around: http://www.cannabisculture.com/backissues/cc07/btmayor.html
In 1995, Taylor illegally planted hemp on his property, in the shape of the word HEMP. He did this as a protest, and he got charged. When he became Mayor the next year, his charges were dropped.
While he was Mayor he got stopped and charged by US Customs for refusing to state if he had ever smoked marijuana. You can read about that and the hempster activism of Taylor here: http://www.cannabisculture.com/backissues/cc11/grandfor.html
Philippe Lucas is the founder of the Vancouver Island Compassion Society. He is a smart guy with a lot of integrity, and he'll make an excellent city councillor: http://www.philippelucas.vicgreens.com
