Code Red for Canadian Natural Health Industry

Code Red for Natural Health Industry. The Bill C-6 Missile has been launched!

Government has just introduced Bill C-6 which is in fact a repackaged Bill C-52. They do not dare re-introduce Bill C 51 because there is too much blood on the table over this Bill thanks to the hard work of thousands of Canadians who understand the importance of having a separate and distinct act for natural health products.

So, if the 2004 onerous NHP drug style regulations are strangling the natural health industry, the government only needs to pass Bill C-6 (former C 52) to accomplish their mission. What exactly is their mission you might ask? Contrary to what politicians may be telling you, Bill C-6 certainly isn't there to increase our access or to increase public safety with regards to natural health products. We have already lost tens of thousands of safe natural health products from health food store shelves. It is evident that our government is marching to the drum beat of the multi-national drug corporations. Bill C-6 is being introduced in the name of public safety, however, it paves the way for our government to have foreign regulations brought in simply under regulation changes without the scrutiny of parliament (we the people), thus eroding our rights and freedoms as sovereign beings.

Schedule 1 of Bill C-6 specifically EXEMPTS both "drugs" and "foods". "Natural Health Products" are not specifically mentioned in Schedule 1. NHPs are treated for regulatory purposes as a sub-category of "drugs"; however, one wonders if the omission from Schedule 1 may be a deliberate semantic loophole? In order to avoid confusion, we must insist that Natural Health Products be specifically named in Schedule 1. Failing to do so, could further jeopardize and eliminate thousands more natural health products.

Bill C-6 gives powers to inspectors to stop the importation or sale of a product and to seize property and documents, based entirely on the inspector's "belief" that a product may be harmful. There is no requirement for the inspector to produce any documented proof nor scientific evidence of harm. There is a requirement to get a warrant if the goods and evidence to be seized are in a personal dwelling; however, such warrant could be issued over the telephone by a judge who would base his decision entirely on the unsubstantiated "belief" of the inspector.

Fines are exorbitant: up to $5,000,000 and/or imprisonment for 2 years.

Bill C-6 gives Health Canada the power to levy criminal penalties for what are nothing more than alleged violations of departmental regulations. All a person has to do to commit a "violation" is to contravene a bureaucratic "order". It does not matter if the violation was unintentional, if no one was harmed, if there was no intention to harm, if there was no victim and no crime. Inspectors are also given the right to enforce "on the spot" fines much like parking tickets. Picture this newly formed army of inspectors running around handing out $5000 fines for even minor infractions. All appeals are handled by the Minister as opposed to the Courts. Sounds like the making of a "Kangaroo Court" doesn't it?

These Natural Health Product drug style regulations need to be entirely suspended until we get our own separate and distinct act which no longer threatens the rapid erosion of our supplements industry and the paving of the way for multi national pharmaceutical takeover.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

Exposing Health Canada - Chopra's book - Corrupt To The Core ...

I have just finished reading the shocking, eye-opening book "Corrupt To The Core" by Dr. Shiv Chopra - in which he documents in vivid detail his many years of "battle against CORRUPTION" within Health Canada, in his efforts to preserve the integrity of the Canadian food supply in the face of government compliance with the demands of corporate vested interests. He describes with alarming detail how Health Canada, in obedience to the agenda of the Canadian Government, has sacrificed - and continues to knowingly and intentionally sacrifice - the security of the Canadian food supply and the health of Canadians in order to accommodate the unfettered "profitability demands" of the corporate lobby - totally betraying its "mandate to protect" the Canadian public, its health, its environment and the safety of its food supply.

He also details how easy it is to corrupt and destroy a nation when people in positions of authority are willing to betray their mandate "to serve the public good", and sacrifice their character and integrity for the enticements of personal gain - be it promotion, monetary, or prestige - and how difficult it is for those few who operate with impeccable integrity to exist and operate within this "climate of total corruption". It is obvious that our government is Corrupt to the Core - not only Health Canada. It is also obvious that this corruption is being carried out with sufficient stealth, secrecy, and cover-up SPIN, that the average Canadian, and many members of Parliament, are not totally aware of the depth of this deception and betrayal.

This book is a "Must Read" book for every Canadian - and we must also make sure that all persons in positions of authority are given this book to read.

This book normally retails for $30, but if we bulk order (5 copies or more) we can buy it at 50% off, plus shipping and GST. (which should bring it in between $16 - $17)

I will be placing an order shortly for "Corrupt To The Core", so if any of you - living in the Vancouver area - want me to order a copy for you, please let me know, ASAP - also how many you may want for some of your friends, etc.
Please put "Book Order" in the subject line of your email, or call me at 604 437-6286. Please make sure that you also give me your tel. no.

If you have any ideas as to how to efficiently get this book into the hands of politicians, your suggestions are most welcome. When you read Chopra's book, you will realize that this is a battle that requires all of us to "be soldiers on duty" ready to do battle. Everyone can "make a difference".

You may be aware that the infamous Bills C51, C52 have been reincarnated in the guise of Bill C6 - and we must once again mobilize and make sure that we defeat it. Exposing the level of corruption that motivated its inception is a good place to start. Accurate Knowledge is always a prerequisite to any effective strategy.

In response to Bills C51 and C52, Helke wrote the book "What Part of 'NO' Must They Understand". Since this book has sold out, she has made it available for FREE DOWNLOAD from her website www.kospublishing.com
