Big Victory - But It's Not Over Yet

Kudos go to Trueman Tuck of Friends of Freedom for working tirelessly behind the scenes for this very important milestone in our fight to force Health Canada towards it purported mandate of protecting the health of the tax payers.

It is a sad commentary that we have take a regulatory body to task, just to it's job!

The job is far from over though - there are many road blocks that still need to be passed in the parliamentary process . Given the blatant disregard by Health Canada to the people's wishes this is only an intermediate step and a sustained effort to maintain momentum will be required to reach our goals.

The vested interests are incredibly adapt at lulling us into compliancy. Sadly, we will have to maintain our guard at all times, given that the history of these government bodies are so easily corrupted to abuse their position. Or we will continue to see strict regulatory enforcement on the small guy while leaving the big money to do as they please. As it has abundantly been made clear from earlier posts referred at the end.

We have a great opportunity to counter the pharma lobby groups by educating the nay sayer MPs. These can be accessed at: 124 yea 85 nay 10

Then by going to to: MP Listings

A note of praise to the yea sayers will also go a long way to maintain the momentum in our direction...

Last but not least Member of Parliament James Lunney, get's high praise who had the guts and fortitude to go against the tide to force this change...

Lunney's Bill: Big Victory
Natural Health Products Bill Goes to Committee

OTTAWA- A Canadian Alliance bill to amend the Food and Drugs Act was passed last night with the support of all opposition parties and many government members. Bill C-420, sponsored by James Lunney, MP for Nanaimo-Alberni, would place Natural Health Products under a food-style directorate, rather than a drug-style directorate as currently proposed.

Lunney has raised concerns that outdated clauses (3.1 and 3.2) of the Food and Drugs Act have been used to take low-risk, high-benefit vitamin, mineral and herbal products off the market. "In a day of skyrocketing health costs, all avenues of promoting healthier Canadians need to be explored,” said Lunney. "With Bill C-420, we could still have Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), inspections, and evaluation of claims, but oversight would come from a more appropriate food-style directorate, one that better understands the history and culture of such products, which by their nature are not patentable.”

The bill will be referred to the Standing Committee on Health. The Committee is expected to examine the bill, hear from witnesses, and consider amendments before it returns to the House.

"The vote of 124 to 85 indicates that Members of Parliament want this matter to be examined more thoroughly before new regulations come into effect early in the new year,” said Lunney.
