Canada Gazette 2 - Food & Drugs Act

While this applies to the Canadian segment of the viewers and is primarily directed to them it is very educational for all as sooner or later everyone will have to deal with it and some are already effected (see: ).

Inge's comments: This issue is extremely important because these totally unwarranted new restrictions - now applicable to healthy foods and food supplements - will result in most of these products disappearing from the open market, and will thus fundamentally limit the ability of the individual to exercise jurisdiction, self-sufficiency, independence and responsibility for maintaining and restoring his/her own health.

For many people, this is a matter of life and death, since the "Medical Establishment" has never been able or willing to serve their needs. Nutrients - the building blocks of health - will now be classified and regulated as "drugs", and so that they can become the legal jurisdiction of the pharmaceutical empire - which means the citizens will now serve as the "pawns" of the agenda and profits of the drug-centered "sickness industry".

These regulations are a drastic and despicable move toward actually "PREVENTING HEALTH and PREVENTING the ABILITY of CITIZENS to SOLVE THEIR OWN HEALTH PROBLEMS AND TO MAINTAIN THEIR HEALTH.” This is truly a criminal attack by the government on the health of the entire Canadian population! Whoever controls the levers of your health, CONTROLS YOU – These regulations make us all slaves of the pharmaceutical and medical establishment – through which we will now have to go for “PERMISSION” to remain healthy. While safe health-sustaining nutrition is being restricted and removed from the open market, dangerous drugs are being openly advertised directly to the consumer to increase drug sales and profits.

I urge you to study these regulations, and to flood the MPs, Senators, letters to newspapers etc. with your protests . I also urge you to help support the legal action for an injunction being taken on behalf of all citizens of Canada by a few very dedicated individuals. (Court cases are expensive!).- However all Canaidans must retain the right to freely access products that have been inherently safe for centuries, and are now being regulated, not because they are dangerous, but "because they are healthy" and threaten the profits of the drug-centered sickness industry.

This is a war that we cannot afford to lose. Your health hangs in the balance.

Hi to all:

Here is the official copy of the new regs from the Canada Gazette 2 site.
They bear very little resemblance to the Transition Team Report and the 53 recommendations provided by the Standing Committee on Health.
Its beginning to look like Australia all over again with 1300 - 1600 products removed off of the shelves in the past year.
Many of the small and mid size companies are out of business, with a vigorous campaign on radio and T.V. warning the public about the dangers of Natural Health Products. It took 3 years for Australia to implement the program... where will we be in three years?
Yes we have only seen 168 products removed in Canada but these regs are more controlling then ever before.

Our law suit against Health Canada points the muzzle at the very heart of these issues:

(a) A declaration that the Applicants’ rights under sections 2(b), 7, 8 and 15 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (the “Charter”), have been infringed by the seizures;

(b) A declaration that sections 23 and 26 of the Food and Drugs Act, R.S. 1985, c. F-27 (the “Act”) and sections A.01.040, A.01.041, and A.01.042 of the Food and Drug Regulation C.R.C. c. 870 (the “Regulation”) infringe sections 7 and 8 of the Charter and are of no force and effect;

(c) A declaration that the definition of “drug” in the Act is overly broad and vague and violates sections 2,7 and 15 of the Charter.

(d) An order quashing the decision of the Respondents to treat Empowerplus as a “drug” within the Act and classify Empowerplus as a “Type 2 health risk” to Canadians;

(e) An order quashing any decision by the Respondents that there may have been a violation of s. 9(1) and 9(2) of the Act;

(f) An order quashing any assessment by the Respondents that there may have been a violation of A.01.040 and C.01.014 of the Regulation;

(g) A declaration that a drug identification number (D.I.N.) or establishment license (E.L.) is not required before individuals may import Empowerplus into Canada for personal use;

"Parliament has not given or delegated legislative authority under the provisions of the Act to create regulations that propound a scheme for establishing, licensing, or requiring submission of production for approval in respect of manufacturing or distributing traditional herbal products, natural health products, vitamins and minerals and dietary supplements. Therefore, any definition of “drug” should be read down to exclude natural health products and dietary supplements, including Empowerplus"

The previous statements are found in our suit, now before the federal courts. We need a groundswell of support financially for the suit and there must be massive action taken by Canadians everywhere to direct their M.P.s to eliminate this nonsense.

Think about it Health Canada approves the sale of a known carcinogen "cigarettes" with less regulation in comparison to natural health products... If an NHP had the same effect as tobacco, would it be removed? Where is Kava Kava, Sami, the soon to be removed MSM and Kelp products? Are they known carcinogens? NO

Time to listen up and ask yourself where is this going?

This is a huge election issue.

I think CTV NEWS had it right when they announced... Tough new regulations from Ottawa will make it more difficult to purchase natural health products.

Time for action...Health Canada must be held in contempt of parliament.
