That i sort of an irrelevent thing in this case as he was in trouble in the NFL for doing something that is not illegal in the CFL. Why would they ban him? He has done nothing against CFL policy.
I think is would be fair for the CFL to also not employ people under suspension in the NFL. I am quite sure the CFL has similar penalties for those that violate drug policy and have random testing to keep their players healthy and playing on a 'level field'. I also want the penalty to be really served and not bypassed. Yes, I understand it is a 'business', but still, drug use shouldn't be ignored as something to be used against a person looking for such a upper level job.
In Canada, while they do have a slightly different attitudes toward pot and legality of possession and use of small quantities, normally anyone with certain drug charges or even a conviction for drunk driving, can be banned from entering Canada. If any of us were convicted of drug charges, I doubt we would be allowed to get a work permit to work in Canada. Williams shouldn't be allowed an exemption.
