Conrad Black excerpt from his new book RISE TO GREATNESS: The History of Canada…
‘Petty criminals continued to be sent (161 smugglers and poachers were received in Canada between 1723 and 1749).
‘Talon encouraged the production of tar, potash and hemp, though these products were only moderately successful commercially.’
So, there is certainly an historical precedent in what Black calls ‘Canada’ for the growing of hemp in contemporary Quebec, if not in all of Canada.
