R v Greyeyes, [1997] 2 SCR 825

Facts:

Undercover officer asked G for cocaine. G said he knew someone and if he drove G he would get some.

Issue(s):

Has G acted for the purpose of aiding the trafficking of drugs or is he a mere purchaser?

Ratio:

Motive is relevant in order to distinguish between traffickers and purchasers – Dissent Poitras.
What is the definition of MR – someone whose acts are designed to aid the purchaser yet incidentally aid the seller, have assisted much more in the purchase than in the sale – as such they must share the culpability of the purchaser rather then vendor

Holding:

G did far more than act as a purchaser- w/o Gs assistance the purchase never would have taken place
