Warning! Strong Language
His sentence, one year probation and a fine of $9,150.00. I’m not sure what the terms of his probation are at this time, nor can I see any justification for the fine or the amount. Surely this “raw milk” fiasco has cost the taxpayer millions over the years. To what end or benefit has not been made clear either by the gov. or the court.
Mr. Schmidt has endured years of harassment by the Ontario gov., including a raid on his farm in 2006 by armed agents.
This is not about “harm” because there wasn’t any. No, this is about control of your property, “your body” of which the gov seems to think it owns. It does not. The gov does not have authority to decide what you ingest.
Therefore, Michael Schmidt’s “raw milk” campaign is not so much about whether “raw milk products” are safe, but about your rights as a private person.
I hope everyone continues their support of Michael and his work and in the end, may the people of Ontario and Canada learn from Michael’s example.
If you don’t stand for what’s right – you stand for nothing.
A sad legacy to pass to your children and grandchildren, indeed.
As you read the article from the National Post below, understand the underlying process taking place.
This is part of the UN/NWO/Elite/Banker/Corp plan for domination. This follows the UN plan for depopulation and bankrupting of people.
If you can’t access the medicines you require you obviously won’t live as long. If you own assets like property, you may be forced to sell to get money for medicine or medical treatment like an operation. Agenda 21 states that private property is not sustainable. What a great way to get you to give up your property…..something anyone would do to save their life.
Also understand, the gov could make available all medicine and operations if they wanted to. They unfortunately have bought into the UN/NWO/Corp agenda.
You are no longer a living breathing person, not in their eyes. You are a “human resource”, like any other resource, used for generation of corporate profit. When a resource costs a corporation money, it becomes a liability and is “risk managed.” If you become ill or have reached retirement age you become a liability.
This also reflects the UN Universal Human Rights Code which declares everyone has the right to adequate health-care. Problem-who decides what “adequate” is? You, your doctor, your employer or the UN and the Corporations?
It’s time to wake-up to the “new reality.”
Keep this in mind as you read the National Post story below-
A growing tide of high-priced specialty medicines for arthritis, cancer and other diseases is set to put unprecedented pressure on workplace drug plans, likely forcing strict limits on what they cover, higher employee premiums and even an end to some plans altogether, experts are warning.
The private benefit programs that millions of Canadians depend on are due for “radical change” that could force many to pay thousands of dollars out of pocket for their medications, one consultant planned to tell a conference Thursday of the Health Charities Coalition of Canada.
“I believe it’s going to move the employer drug plan into an era of unaffordability and unsustainability,”
David West of Mercer Human Resources Consulting said in an interview Wednesday. “I think it’s a critical issue. Unless all the players and stakeholders get together and develop a mutually beneficial process, it’s going to be difficult for a lot of individuals to access these meds.”
Even now, specialty drugs like Remicade — a “biologic” treatment for rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s disease — account for less than 1% of the number of claims to private insurance, and 16% of the total costs. A year’s worth of infusions can carry a price tag of close to $50,000.
One mid-size employer decided this week that its plan would no longer cover any biologics, said Mike Sullivan, president of Cubic Health, which advises employer benefit managers.
Mr. West said he has heard from other employers seeking to end their biologics coverage, too.
“It’s a massive issue that is really only starting to come to the surface now,” Mr. Sullivan said.
Mr. West said he first became aware of the issue about a year ago when he learned of a new biologic to treat Lupus. Very pricey, it was still likely to be relatively widely used.
Further research revealed 74 biologics and other speciality drugs for diseases such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis and Crohn’s far into the pipeline, plus 22 new cancer drugs that were late in the stage of development and would qualify for coverage under most private plans, said Mr. West.
He estimates that costs will soar by 2.5 to three fold by 2019 at the latest and possibly within the next three to four years. Benefits mangers are rattled by the fact many of the high-cost medications are for ongoing, long-term treatment of conditions, rather than, say, an expensive cancer drug that may only be needed for a few months.
Some plans are already reporting claims of $650,000 a year for Soliris, a drug to tread a rare blood disorder, Mr. West said.
Meanwhile, those savings from generic drugs are disproportionately benefiting government drug programs that mostly cover the elderly, said Mr. Sullivan. Many of the new specialty medications will be used more by people in their working years, covered by employer plans, he said. And those products average about $1,500 a claim, versus $50 a claim for the standard type of medication.
The result is likely to be restrictions on what is covered and overall caps on how much each employee can claim, said Mr. Sullivan. Mr. West said it is possible some drug plans will be cancelled entirely.
“We’re moving into an era where, if the drug spend rises too high, too quickly, employers will likely take drastic action,” he said.
Mr. West suggested that plans will have to take more measures to control costs, such as ensuring that medical guidelines are followed, which can mean reserving the new, high-cost drugs as last-ditch treatments.
Not convinced? Read on……..
Too Many Canadians?
In Canada many believe there is an abundance of resources and endless space for more and more people. But, numbers are growing by nearly 1% a year and non-renewable resources diminishing. In the densely populated southern tier where 90% live, urban congestion, environmental pollution and social challenges associated with crowded living conditions are a growing reality. Ecosystems face increased pressures as we devour our best farmlands and forests, pollute the waters we drink and the air we breathe, in the process hastening the pace of habitat destruction, biodiversity loss and climate change.
Too Large a Footprint
With one of the largest per capita ecological footprints in the world, Canadians can no longer ignore the negative impact of our population growth on the environment.
Note – (You may get your health study once the thousands of wind turbines are erected. It is quite possible that once all the turbines are erected, the govt. will say that there is a danger to health .. Everyone must move off the affected lands into towns and cities, because the govt. cares deeply about your health. One of the core goals of Agenda 21 is to move people into “human settlements” and “re-wild” the rural areas. Sustainability!
So keep on asking for the health study – it will make a future govt. look good………..of course you won’t live in the country any longer. On the bight side – you got your health study and never had to expose the scam………good work!.)

On the surface, even if you despise Wal-Mart, this looks like……maybe a good idea.
But, like so much delivered to us by the main-stream news, the media tends to leave much of the story out. While the writer did include the most important part of the story, most will never see it. As you read the article, you will see “The Center for Science in the Public Interest.” To most, it sounds like a very caring entity. In fact, most will accept it as verification of the story itself, by thinking, “The Center for Science in the Public Interest” endorses it.
What exactly is “The Center for Science in the Public Interest“ what do they actually promote and who funds them?
Push the funding link and you will find many names, including the “Rockefeller Family Fund” since its inception in 1971.
“”Founded by executive director Michael Jacobson, Ph.D. and two other scientists, CSPI carved out a niche as the organized voice of the American public on nutrition, food safety, health and other issues during a boom of consumer and environmental protection awareness in the early 1970s. CSPI has long sought to educate the public, advocate government policies that are consistent with scientific evidence on health and environmental issues, and counter industry’s powerful influence on public opinion and public policies.”
Push on the “More” button and under “International” we find the real story. Welcome to the United Nations and Codex.
So, what’s the real story? This is just one Con, in a long line of Cons carried out by your elected officials and the media, moving us every closer to the “End Game.” Complete and total control by a group of non-elected elites and their corporate friends.
Welcome to Wal-Mart
Wal-Mart Stores Inc will promote and cut prices on healthier food at its stores, a move that was eagerly endorsed by the U.S. first lady and one that could push food companies to overhaul more products.
The initiative comes as the world’s largest retailer tries to overcome political and union opposition to its expansion in urban areas like New York City, Chicago and Washington, D.C., by touting its ability to bring lower-priced fruits, vegetables and other healthy foods to “food deserts” in cities and to rural areas that lack traditional grocery chains.
Michelle Obama, who leads an administration initiative to combat child obesity, joined Wal-Mart executives as they announced the plan in Washington on Thursday.
“To say I’m excited is probably an understatement because we’re really gaining some momentum on this issue,” Michelle Obama said, speaking in front of crates packed with fruits and vegetables. “We are seeing a fundamental shift in our national conversation about how we make and sell food. That’s something that wasn’t happening just a year ago.”
The Center for Science in the Public Interest, a consumer group often at odds with the food industry, applauded Wal-Mart and urged the government to do more.
“I hope this move emboldens the Food and Drug Administration and U.S. Department of Agriculture, which should immediately pull the plug on partially hydrogenated oil and set reasonable limits on sodium levels in different categories of packaged foods,” CSPI Executive Director Michael Jacobson said in a statement.
Wal-Mart’s efforts have the potential to affect everyone from farmers to grocery stores, drugstores and even dollar stores, which have been beefing up their food offerings.

by Jeremy Arney
To all MPs and a majority of the Senators,
Strange isn’t it how things work out.
I, along with many others, wrote to you all about Bill C-36, and NHPs.
Section 4 (3) states:
For greater certainty, this Act does not apply to natural health products as defined in 1(1) of the Natural Health Products Regulations made under the Food and Drug Act.
What I wrote to you all time and again was that this was a red herring because the NHPs were going to be attacked under the regulations made to the Food and Drug Act and which came into force last January, and so Section 4 (3) was a meaningless paragraph.
But of course you all knew better did you not? This was a victory for you wasn’t it?Just as you knew better about Canada’s sovereignty and rule of Law.
There have been a series of swat team type raids on natural health foods purveyors already and the damn is about to break.
This is what I received by email today from two different sources.
I regret to be the bearer of bad news. I have received confirmation of the new Health Canada enforcement intent for 2011. On March 1, 2011 Health Canada begins full enforcement of nhp’s. Here are the details:
· On March 1, 2011 retailers will not be permitted to purchase unlicensed stock from suppliers (EN or NPN is required), regardless of a submission being in queue.
· On March 1, 2011 importers will not be allowed to import unlicensed products (EN or NPN required).
· On September 1, 2011 retailers will not be allowed to sell to consumers any product that does not have an EN or NPN. In other words, retailers will be allowed to continue selling out unlicensed stock from now until September 1, 2011 — but after September 1, 2011 they will not be permitted to sell unlicensed stock.
Do any of you have any idea how many applications there are for EN or NPNs that are being ignored by Health Canada for years because their pharmaceutical masters tell to do so? Do any of you know how many products are being delisted for the same reason? Maybe one of you should check it out as it is not hard to find the answer. (Clue: it is in the 500,000 + range). Not one single pharmaceutical drug has been refused or delisted, inspite of hundreds of thousands of deaths, in how many years?
So for those if you who were so proud that you had managed to get this “concession” and therefore claimed that this Bill C-36 was very good for Canada and Canadians and so you did not need to listen to what we were saying to you, I say thank you for altering the very fabric of Canada, her citizens’ health and certainly her peoples’ freedoms to practice their own health care and privacy by your careless acceptance and passage of Bill C-36 with a catchy name.
It is way too late for you to re-read what you so blithely passed with hardly even looking at the Bill and it’s gross attack on Canada’s sovereignty and Rules of Law. Even though the valiant fight goes by a few Canadians in the Senate which is no longer a chamber of sober second thought but an extension of one man’s personal ideology and determination to destroy Canada by handing our parliament, courts and people over to his corporate masters. No it is a forgone conclusion unless some of those Harper minions in the Senate realise what is happening and decide that Canada is more important than a really dangerous Bill with a catchy name.
The Minister of Health has done a great job of selling you on the need for this Bill C-36 without ever referring to the real purpose behind the bill. All you MPs fell for it without regard for your constituents, whom you are supposed to represent, and without listening to their cries of alarm. Great work. I expect you all to to be rewarded in the next election.
When the first regulations come rolling in from EU, USA, China, Israel, or wherever without you even being made aware of them; when our agriculture and food supplies are all controlled by Monsanto; when our budget is under the direction of the IMF and/or the Bank of International Settlements, remember this…YOU WERE WARNED.
I will not take the drugs that Health Canada will try to force on me as they did last year with the untested, untried dangerous H1N1 vaccine for a fake pandemic, but rather I will seek out the black market for those natural foods which are good for my body. Since I am now getting old it will not be long before I start to rot due to the lack of availability of healthy nutrition for low income seniors, so thank you all very much.
My greatest contempt is for the leaders of the parties who told you what to do and you did it blindly. When the deaths start to happen due to malnutrition and excessive pharmaceutical drug use; from the fear of and the actuality of raids by armed riot police for the simple “suspected” possession of a possibly dangerous product; from the removal of personal possessions simply because they can be removed indefinitely, remember Health Canada, Health Canada’s real masters, Bill C-36 and your part in it.
My admiration to those who are still fighting for Canada in
the Senate, and you know who you are. You are included in this simply so you know what I think of the rest, but I thank you for your continued efforts on behalf of Canada, my children and grandchildren. May the force be with you.
For the rest of you I have nothing but pity and some measure of contempt.

À tous les députés et la majorité des sénateurs,
Projet de loi C-36, une acte sécurité respectant produit des consommateurs.
Il comment les choses fonctionnent pas étrange.
J’ai, avec beaucoup d’autres, écrit à vous tous sur le projet de loi C-36 et produits de santé naturels.
États de section 4 (3):
Pour plus de certitude, cette loi ne s’applique pas aux produits de santé naturels tels que définis dans le 1er, paragraphe 1 de la règlement pris en vertu des aliments et drogues.
Ce que j’ai écrit pour vous tous les ai maintes et maintes fois qu’il s’agissait d’un hareng rouge parce que les produits de santé naturels allaient être attaqué en vertu du règlement fait les aliments et drogues et qui est entré en vigueur en janvier dernier, et donc la section 4 (3) était un paragraphe vide de sens.
Mais bien entendu vous tous Saviez mieux que vous avez pas ? C’est une victoire pour vous n’est-il pas? juste que tu connaissais déjà au mieux à la souveraineté et la primauté du droit du Canada.
Il y a eu une série de choc équipe type raids sur les fournisseurs d’aliments naturels de santé déjà et la respecter est sur le point de rupture.
C’est ce que j’ai reçu par courriel aujourd’hui de deux sources différentes.
Je regrette d’être porteur de mauvaises nouvelles. J’ai reçu la confirmation de l’intention d’application de la Loi de Santé Canada nouveau pour 2011. Le 1 mars 2011 Santé Canada commence une application complète du nhp. Voici les détails :
· Le 1 mars 2011 détaillants ne pourront acheter sans licence stock auprès des fournisseurs (EN ou NPN est requis), indépendamment d’une présentation étant dans la file d’attente.
· Le 1 mars 2011 les importateurs ne seront pas laisser d’importer des produits non homologués (EN ou NPN requis).
· Sur le 1er septembre 2011 détaillants ne pourront vendre aux consommateurs de tout produit qui n’est pas un EN ou NPN. En d’autres termes, les détaillants pourront continuer de vendre sans licence stock à partir de maintenant jusqu’au 1er septembre 2011 — mais après le 1er septembre 2011, ils ne pourront vendre le stock non homologué.
Certains d’entre vous ont toute idée combien de demandes sont EN ou NPN qui est actuellement ignoré par Santé Canada pour les années parce que leurs maîtres pharmaceutiques dire du pour faire ? Vous connaissez les produits combien sont être retirés de la liste pour la même raison ? Peut-être un d’entre vous doit vérifier qu’il n’est pas difficile de trouver la réponse. (Indice : c’est dans les 500 000 + plage). Pas un seul pharmaceutique a été refusé ou retirés de la liste, en dépit des centaines de milliers de morts, dans combien d’années ?
Donc pour ceux si vous qui étaient fiers que vous a réussi à obtenir ce « concession » et par conséquent a prétendu que ce projet de loi C-36 a été très bon pour le Canada et les Canadiens, et si vous n’avait pas besoin d’écouter ce que nous avons dit à vous, je dis merci pour modifier la structure même du Canada, la santé de ses citoyens et certainement des libertés de ses peuples à la pratique de leurs propres soins de santé et de la protection des renseignements personnels par votre acceptation négligente et l’adoption du projet de loi C-36, avec un nom accrocheur.
, Il est beaucoup trop tard pour vous permet de relire ce que vous avez passé tellement allègrement avec peine même en regardant le projet de loi et il est brut attaque sur la souveraineté du Canada et des règles de droit. Même si la lutte vaillante va par quelques Canadiens au Sénat qui est n’est plus une chambre de moderer mais une extension de l’idéologie personnelle et leur détermination à détruire le Canada par remise notre Parlement, les tribunaux et les personnes à ses maîtres d’entreprise un homme. Non c’est une conclusion de manque à gagner, à moins que certains de ces laquais Harper au Sénat réaliser ce qui se passe et décident que le Canada est plus important qu’un projet de loi vraiment dangereux avec un nom accrocheur.
Le ministre de la santé a fait un excellent travail de vous vendre sur la nécessité pour ce projet de loi C-36, sans jamais se référant à l’objectif réel derrière le projet de loi. Vous tous les députés sont tombés pour lui sans tenir compte de vos électeurs, qui vous sont censés pour représenter, et sans écouter leurs cris d’alarme. Excellent travail. J’attends de vous tous à être récompensés lors des prochaines élections.
Quand le premier règlement laminage UE, États-Unis, Chine, Israël, ou partout où sans vous même être mis au courant d’eux ; Lorsque nos fournitures agricoles et alimentaires sont tous contrôlés par Monsanto. Lorsque notre budget est sous la direction du FMI ou la Banque des règlements internationaux, rappelez-vous ce…VOUS AVERTIS.
Je ne prendrai pas les médicaments que Santé Canada tente de forcer sur moi, comme l’année dernière avec le non testé, non dangereux H1N1 vaccin pour un faux en cas de pandémie, mais plutôt, je chercherai sur le marché noir pour ces aliments naturels qui sont bons pour mon corps. Étant donné que je deviens maintenant vieux ne sera pas longtemps avant de commencer à la pourriture attribuable à un manque de disponibilité de nutrition saine pour les aînés de faible revenu, si je vous remercie tous beaucoup.
Mon plus grand mépris est pour les dirigeants des partis qui vous dit quoi faire et vous l’avez fait aveuglément. Quand la mort commence à se produire en raison de la malnutrition et l’utilisation de médicaments excessive ; la crainte d’et l’actualité de raids par la police anti-émeute armés pour la simple possession « suspect » d’un produit peut-être dangereux ; l’enlèvement des possessions personnelles simplement parce qu’ils peuvent être supprimés indéfiniment, n’oubliez pas de véritables maîtres de Santé Canada, Santé Canada, loi C-36 et de votre part dans ce.
Mon admiration pour ceux qui se battent encore pour le Canada, le Sénat, et vous savez qui vous êtes. Sont inclus dans ce tout simplement vous savez ce que je pense du reste, mais je vous remercie pour vos efforts continus au nom du Canada, mes enfants et petits-enfants. La force est peut-être avec vous.
Pour le reste d’entre vous, j’ai rien mais pitié et une certaine d’outrage au Tribunal.
If you don’t like what you see or hear do something about it instead of complaining.
About a month ago I was pulling into my driveway and heard this exchange on CBC radio. “Do you think the media over-hyped the H1N1 virus threat?” To which CBC responded “Don’t look at us, we only go with the Script that’s handed to us.” Finally, some truth from the Media.
The main stream news would do well to put out a “Statement of Truth.”
“We are no longer interested in hiring journalists. However, if you are a fiction writer and would like a long-term contract writing for National Media outlets, please apply as your services are in great demand.”
As the kind of strategy contained in the GAP business plan has never been pursued, the Group noted that there were obvious risks. A major risk factor is the underlying assumption that there will in fact be a pandemic. If there is not a pandemic within the next five years, there may be loss of interest and
political awareness, and other public health needs may shift investment away from pandemic
influenza. Therefore, it is critical to identify the best possible strategy to maintain political commitment
and WHO is working with partners (UNICEF) and donors to mitigate this risk

TORONTO – Ontario’s H1N1 vaccination program averted nearly one million cases and as many as 50 deaths, a newly published cost-analysis of the program suggests.
The finding is surprising, given that the province — and the country — started putting vaccine into arms just about the time the fall wave of the pandemic peaked.
From Tuesday’s Globe and Mail Published on Tuesday, Jul. 20, 2010 8:44AM EDT Last updated on Tuesday, Jul. 20, 2010 9:24AM EDT
Even failures can have a silver lining: Ontario had the lowest H1N1 vaccination rate in the country, but the millions of dollars poured into its program averted nearly one million cases of pandemic influenza.
The gates foundation is heavily invested in vaccines. He says in the attached video, the population could be reduced by 10% with the “proper” use of vaccines. Makes you want to roll up your sleeve, doesn’t it.
Note – I received a call this morning, Nov 12th, from Keli Hogan, Committee Clerk for the Senate Committee on Bill C-6. Shawn Buckley will be speaking to the Senate Committee, Nov 25th
Just received update on Bill C-6
Farewell Canada. Bill C-6 will be passed in days. SPREAD THIS NOW!!!!
Under the banner of Consumer protection as well as Health and Saftey, Canadians should prepare for a loss of basic human freedoms that were once protected under the Canadian Charter of Rights…..
Bill C-6 is about to have its 3rd and final reading before being passed into law. With a sense of desperate urgency I am now busy sending emails to Canadian Senators and MP’s to try and halt this draconian legislation, which will end Canadian freedoms as once enjoyed by so many.
I appeal to Canuck’s on this website to consider investing 15 minutes in this cause. I am including an email I just sent out to friends and family with a pre-written letter to Canadian Senators and MP’s, and a ‘cut and paste’ list of all Senator and MP’s email addresses.
If you are hazy on Bill C-6, be sure to check out the videos posted at the end of this article.
If you are concerned by this issue, now is the last opportunity to act! – not tomorrow, not after a few days, but NOW! Feel free to use all or parts of the email below….
“Bill C-6 is about to be passed into law. In days it will receive its 3rd and final reading before becoming law. It deserves our effort (NOW) to stop this draconian removal of our basic Canadian civil liberties.” This Bill will also allow for mandatory, total population vaccination programs. Do we want that????
I am asking for 15 minutes of your time to cut and paste a pre-written letter (or create your own) to be sent to our Government Senators (email addresses included below). It’s rather easy to do.
First, here are a few comments about Bill C-6 from Dee Nicholson, National Communications Director for Freedom in Canadian Health Care
“Bill C-6 is unconstitutional: its language violates the provisions of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms as follows:
a. search private property without a warrant;
b. seize private property without Court supervision;
c. destroy private property without Court supervision;
d. take control of businesses without Court supervision;
e. in some circumstances to keep seized private property without a Court order;
f. impose penalties without a Court order.”
(Learn more at http://www.falseflagflu.com/citizen_info_and_action.html)
and, more comments from a friend’s email (at very bottom of this page)…
The C-6 law would allow the Canadian government’s enforcement agents to:
* Raid your home or business with a simple ex parte application via telephone. (Are consumer products so risky that we have to move away from our current search warrant provisions?- Shawn Buckley)
* An inspector who is carrying out their functions or any person accompanying them may enter on or pass through or over private property, and they are not liable for doing so. (May as well throw out all those signs that say No Trespassing and Private Property!)
* The use of force to enter your home or private property with peace officers
* Confiscate your property, take samples free of charge and even charge you storage fees for the expense involved in storing all the products they stole from you
* The ability to amend Bill C-6 Schedule 1 through regulation alone (Very dangerous!)
Here’s the letter for Canadian Senators, to paste into a new email:
-Subject: Bill C-6
The denial of Due Process of law, being employed in Bill C-6 is unconstitutional. According to the Book of Criminal Procedure, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Constitution Act are the supreme law of this country, and any legislation which voids our rights is “of no force or effect.” Why is our government not only passing an unconstitutional law, but fast-tracking it too? How can we trust that this legislation is for the good of the nation and all its citizens, when such manoeuvring is being used to pass it? This Bill must not be passed. It is unconstitutional, illegal and treasonous! You as Senators are there to protect us and not to take our rights away.
Sincerely, (your name)
MASS E-MAILING SENATORS, copy and paste all the address into your BCC in smaller groups in case your email program is limited.
Get the list here:
If you wish to do the same for MP’s (as I am doing as well as Senators) simply replace the “Dear Senator” in the letter to,. “Dear MP”, and cut and paste the following list of MP email addresses…(they are broken into small groups)

“To do nothing is to bid farewell to freedoms for Canadians.”
Info from a Canadian website…..
“For Canadians at this moment, the most serious threat to their rights and freedoms is Bill C-6 which has been passed by our Parliament, and was recently in the Senate for 2nd Reading. The 3rd reading could pass it into Law. (Notice: 2nd reading has now been passed)”
If it passes, it would provide our Government with draconian means to remove supplements, to force-vaccinate the population, to remove all our Rights and Freedoms, including the right to Due Process, which has been our right since the Magna Carta was signed in 1215 AD.

UPDATE/FLASHBACK: Bill C-51, Codex and the SPP
“Many will recall the intense opposition voiced against Bill C-51 which proposed sweeping changes to the Food and Drugs Act. There was also much contention surrounding Bill C-52, the Consumer Products Safety Act. Both Bills would have expanded the powers of Health Canada in areas of seizure and detention. After the last federal election in October 2008, the Harper government essentially reintroduced Bill C-52 as Bill C-6. It has now been passed in the House of Commons and is being debated in the Senate. Despite assurances by the Conservatives that C-6 has nothing to do with natural health products, there are still many concerns. Part of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) agenda, involved the harmonization of regulations. Codex Alimentarius is about implementing a global food code and threatens health freedoms. Codex worldwide implementation is slated for December 31, 2009. Many initiatives such as Bill C-6 are moving forward under the guise of public safety and would expand governmental powers and could be used to violate civil liberties.”
Bill C-51, Codex and the SPP
(Originally Published on June 20, 2008)
By Dana Gabriel
On April 8, 2008, Canada’s Health Minister introduced Bill C-51 which proposed sweeping changes to the Food and Drugs Act. The Canadian government has since been forced to make amendments because of intense grassroots pressure. There are fears that this Bill could lead to some vitamins, herbs, minerals, and dietary supplements no longer being available in the country. Through the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP), Canada, the U.S., and Mexico are already busy harmonizing food and drug regulations into a North American Union structure. Some have suggested that this Bill would also bring Canadian law into compliance with the Codex Alimentarius Commission. Bill C-51 has the potential to take away the rights of people to freely choose natural medicine as an alternative to expensive drug-based products and treatments.
Bill C-51 will further encroach on civil liberties and increase police state measures. There is reason for concern because of the Bills ambiguous language in regards to raids and seizures. It has been referred to as a police state bill masquerading as a health bill. It will make it easier for Canadian officials to seize natural health products and remove them from store shelves. It grants inspectors the power to raid homes and businesses without a warrant and the power to seize bank accounts and property. Some might recall that in the early 90’s, the FDA engaged in paramilitary raids on American health food stores, holistic treatment centers, and other nutritional supplement businesses. This behavior created such a public outcry and backlash, leading Congress to pass the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) to protect the right of American consumers to purchase and use nutritional supplements.
If the Harper Conservative government thought that they were going to quietly pass Bill C-51, were they ever wrong. When word hit the Internet and blogosphere that up to 60% of natural health products currently sold in Canada could be outlawed, it sparked a swift and strong public reaction. In Bill C-51, the word drug has been replaced with “therapeutic products” and gives the government broad reaching powers to further regulate their sale. Health Minister Tony Clement has vowed to change the parts that lumped natural medicines in with pharmaceutical drugs. This includes a clearer definition of natural health products into the Food and Drugs Act. There have been other amendments made, but there are still many concerns surrounding Bill C-51. It might be safer to do away with it in its entirety and start from scratch.
It is the SPP working groups that are harmonizing regulations and laws, writing out policy initiatives and recommendations. They are the real power, laying the foundation for a North American Union. Part of the SPP calls for the “Identification and appropriate adoption of best practices in maintaining the safety, efficacy and quality of pharmaceutical products.” NDP MP Peter Julian said in the House of Commons that, “Bill C-51 would limit access to many health products and allow the fast-tracking of new drugs that have not been proven safe. Bill C-51 blends in with the SPP agenda, which is about harmonizing regulations across the board with the United States, resulting in lower standards.” There are fears that Bill C-51 will bring about a more U.S. style approach to food, drugs, and consumer product safety. This includes turning more power over to the drug companies with increased reliance on their testing and research. These same drug manufacturers would themselves be more responsible in fast-tracking the drug approval process and further looking after any safety concerns once the drug has hit the market. Under the Trilateral Cooperation Charter, the FDA is also working with Canada and Mexico in further harmonizing regulations between the three countries.
It is not just through the SPP and the Trilateral Cooperation Charter that the harmonizing of food and drugs is being achieved. The Codex Alimentarius Commission which is part of the United Nations is setting international guidelines for food products including dietary supplements. They are using muscle provided by the World Trade Organization to undermine and bypass domestic laws. Section Six of CAFTA talks about using the Codex codes as the regulatory standard for all signing nations. It is through the Codex guidelines that vitamins, minerals, and other natural supplements could become limited and even banned. Some fear that Bill C-51 is an attempt to place Canada under Codex control.
Many argue that Bill C-51 is unnecessary, and that there are already laws in place to protect consumers from natural health products. It’s not about keeping Canadians safe, it’s about further harmonizing our health and safety regulations into a North American Union. How can fast-tracking potentially dangerous new drugs and at the same time outlawing some beneficial natural medicines be good for anyone? One must understand that it is also about ensuring huge profits for Big Pharma. Bill C-51 should be rejected on the grounds that it threatens the ability of Canadians to choose alternative health products and treatments.
