Canada’s Bill C-51 May Outlaw Natural Health Food Products
Friday, May 9, 2008
On April 8, a bill was introduced into the Canadian House of Commons that has highly worrisome implications for natural health products and those who consume and use them. The same implications might be in store for Americans as well.

A newly proposed law in Canada, Bill C-51, just may outlaw up to 60 percent of natural health products currently sold in Canada — and criminalize people who use them. Bill C-51 which makes significant changes to Canada’s Food and Drugs Act, was introduced into the House of Commons by the Canadian Minister of Health. The first reading on April 8 was followed by it’s second reading on April 28, barely time for consumers, trade groups, and elected representatives to examine, debate, or compose official positions.
Acts in Canada must pass three readings in both legislative houses before becoming law. This is supposed to give representatives and the general public time to become aware of any proposed changes, have them debated, and give their consent. On the other hand, Regulations are published in the newspaper twice and can then be signed into law. Parliament does not vote on Regulations. (Keep this bit in mind for later.)...

Canadian Rights And Freedoms Are At Risk
[An Important Notice Regarding Bill C-51
On April 8th, 2008, the Canadian Minister of Health introduced Bill C-51 into the House of Commons. This Bill proposes significant changes to the current Food and Drugs Act that will have wide-ranging negative implications for Canadians
· Remove democratic oversight,bypassing elected officials to vote in laws and allow bureaucrats to adopt laws from other countries without our consent.
70% of Natural Health Products from Canadians and many others will be available by prescription only.
· Restrict research and development of safe natural alternatives in favor of high risk drugs.
· Punish Canadians with little or no opportunity for protection or recourse for simply speaking about or giving a natural product without the approval of government. More than 70% of people in Canada use a Natural Health Product. The new law goes so far as to warrant action against a person who would give another person an “unapproved” amount of garlic on the recommendation that it would improve that person’s health.
Proposed New Enforcement Powers:
· Inspectors will enter private property without a warrant
· Inspectors will take your property at their discretion
· Inspectors will dispose of your property at will
· Inspectors will not reimburse you for your losses
· Inspectors will seize your bank accounts
· Inspectors will charge owners shipping and storage charges for seized property
· Inspectors will be empowered to store your property indefinitely
· Inspectors will levy fines of up to $5,000,000.00 and/or seek 2 years in jail per incident
With your assets and money under their control will you be able to defend yourself in Court?
Can you trust government with this new law and enforcement power?
Would our government really ever turn this law against us?
Read the following account.
In 2003 Health Canada launched an attack on a group of mentally ill patients and the company who supported them naturally. They seized shipments of a safe natural therapy required by the patients and stormed the support center with 17 armed officers and agents. The company (Truehope) reported that they lost contact with more than 300 of their Canadian participants. The Canadian Mental Health Association told of suicides as a result of government action. (http://youtube.com/watch?v=1cOc4EmbS1I)
Health Canada then charged the not for profit company, burdening them with heavy legal costs. Truehope was found innocent by necessity and instructed by the judge to continue under legal and moral responsibility. Although the agents admitted knowing they were injuring people through their actions, they stated under oath they care only about policy and directive. And what happened to the more than 300 mentally ill Canadians that became unreachable? In the months and years following, reports of hospitalizations and suicides during the seizures have surfaced. No Health Canada agent has ever been charged. (http://youtube.com/watch?v=1cOc4EmbS1I)
Will this new law be used to abuse and punish special interest groups, minorities, religious groups or others?
Why do bureaucrats want to bypass the Parliament and Senate’s approval to create new laws?
Why do bureaucrats want seizure warrants without judge approval ?
With fines being increased a 1000 times, and seizing authority without a warrant, is Bill C-51 meant to bankrupt and silence its target audience?

This might set a precedent for other governments.
Government wants control of everything so they can line their pockets with money. Drugs is big business.

they know that people are trying to eat better and live better
doing this causes people to think better
they cannot have that
all throughout the bible, the oppressor always tried and forced the swine into the diets of the israelites
if you are thinking right and eating right, they have less control over you
i'm telling you now, this shit will get outa hand

The strange thing about this ( it is called bill C-51), is that the bill went thru a first hearing in the Canadian house of commons ( a place where they discuss governmental issues) in mid April, yet I did not hear anything about it in the news.
Then I first heard about it on Saturday evening and heard it was the second hearing. It needs to go thru a third hearing before becoming law in theory, but some are saying because it is a "regulation", a different technical term, they can make it law any time now.
See how they slip it under the radar?
I was talking to friends about this and how real news like this does not get much cover, but some dumb shit gets most of the cover on the news.
