 Protect your access to Natural Health Products in Canada.

Learn how Health Canada is using the Natural Health Product Regulations to eliminate dietary supplements from the market and what you can do about it!

Countdown to March 31, 2010

The Natural Health Product Regulation deadline.

 

GONE IN 2010...

What is Health Canada doing to our  Natural Health Products?

 

Health Canada is on the verge of eliminating the largest sector of Natural Health Products (NHPs) - those with multiple ingredients. This will dramatically reduce Canadians' ability to care for themselves and increase dependence on pharmaceuticals. This will also mean the end of specialty health food stores as we know it.

 Since 2004, the NHP Regulations have reduced the number of NHPs that Canadians can purchase domestically from over 70,000 to less than 40,000. Of these, approximately 15,000 have been licensed, most being single ingredient products.

Tens of thousands of applications for multiple ingredient NHP combinations have sat unprocessed for years, because, according to regulation guidelines, they cannot be approved.

Health Canada fully admits that the safety of these products is not in question. (Of about 10,000 NHP license applications that they have denied, only three have been denied because of safety concerns.) They are not even saying that such products are ineffective, given their long-standing use and popularity. They are simply demanding proof in the form of completely unaffordable human clinical trials, knowing that such proof will not be forthcoming.

The licensing deadline for NHPs is March 31, 2010.After which, Health Canada’s requirement for these trials will eliminate an additional 20 to 25,000 products, one license refusal at a time, when in excess of 30,000 have already been eliminated. This would represent approximately 75% of the market since the Regulations started in 2004!

The record shows that this was not what was intended by Parliament or the Standing Committee on Health as the Regulations were being formed.The repeatedly stated intention of Parliament, representing the Canadian Public, was to clearly distinguish NHPs from pharmaceutical drugs and to recognize their high levels of safety.

But, Health Canada followed their own agenda, assigning NHPs a definition virtually identical to that of pharmaceutical drugs, and has used this definition to eliminate the NHPs we've lost.

Given the fact that Health Canada went directly against Parliament's "on the record" intentions as the Regulations were being formed, their actions are in contempt of Parliament.

Health Canada has become a rogue bureaucracy... a force unto themselves that functions outside of the law. If we, as Canadians, continue to allow them to pursue their own agendas, driven by corporate and pharmaceutical interests, we are headed for crisis.

 

The people of Canada have to take a stand and use their democratic mechanism while they still have it. There is nothing less than the ability to care for ourselves at stake.

These Regulations need to be sent back to the Standing Committee on Health to ensure that what was intended by Parliament is what is happening.  

What do we do?

UPDATE ON BILL C-6: In the September issue of Vitality, lawyer Shawn Buckley of Truehope fame, founder and director of the national Natural Health Products Protection Association, will be updating readers on bill C-6, intended to amend the Hazardous Products Act. It has potentially serious implications also for the Food and Drugs Act. C-6 passed third reading in Parliament on June 12, and the responsible Senate Committee will be deliberating on it after the summer recess. Then Senators need to hear from Canadians why this bill must be rejected or drastically altered, seeing it is an even worse reincarnation of the previous bill C-52.

Helke Ferrie's book on that bill, Which Part of No! Don't they Understand? is available for free downloading on her website http://www.kospublishing.com. It lays out in detail what C-52 and C-6 are really about.

The Charter of Health Freedom Project

 

 © 2009 Northica.media, Mediareel.net

  

The Charter of Health Freedom is proposed legislation that gives Natural Health Products and Traditional Medicines their own Act. It offers an appropriate, healthy, beneficial, safe and well-rooted change for regulating the natural health community. Canadians are protected by permitting unsafe products to be removed while at the same time ensuring that safe and effective treatments remain available.

Extract from CCHC Newsletter To Your Health, March, 2009

 

Police State or Democracy??

 

Bill C-6 – The Replacement For Bills C-51 and C-52???

 

 

Many readers will recall that prior to the last federal election there was a broad citizen revolt across Canada against Bill C-51, an Act to amend the Food and Drugs act.  Bill C-51 specifically targeted Natural Health Products (NHPs) and gave inspectorsunlimited powers to enter businesspremises and seize any products with no accountability to any court.  Its affiliate, Bill C-52 was even more objectionable.  Thankfully both Bills fell off the order paper with the election call.

 

On January 29, 2009, a replica in the form of Bill C-6 was tabled into the House of Commons and is being introduced as the “Canadian Consumer Product Safety Act.”

 

Bill C-6 is almost identical to Bill C-52 and contains enforcement and penalty provisions similar to Bill C-51 except that it goes further with the addition of administrative penalties.  Also it addresses “consumer products” as opposed to “drugs”, of which NHPs are a subset.

 

Bill C-6 currently does not cover Natural Health Products.  Section 4(1) of the Bill sets out that the Bill does not apply to consumer products listed in Schedule 1 of the Bill.   Schedule 1 includes in its list: “Drugs within the meaning of Section 2 of the Food and Drugs Act”.  Natural Health Products are “drugs” under the Food and Drugs Act and consequently are currently exempted from the application of Bill C-6.

 

Although Bill C-6 does not  “currently” apply to NHPs, Bill C-6 could be made applicable to Natural Health Products by simple regulatory amendment. 

Regulatory amendments do not need the approval of Parliament.  Section 36(1)(d) of the Bill allows the Government to amend Schedule 1 to make Bill C-6 apply to drugs (which includes Natural Health Products) by passing a regulation.  This puts Canadians in an awkward position. After successfully fighting Bill C-51 in 2008, they could find Natural Health Products threatened by the same provisions found in Bill C-51 applied through Bill C-6.

 

If Bill C-6 passes, it is completely unrealistic to assume that the government would not soon pass the necessary regulation so that enforcement provisions and penalties would encompass drugs and (especially) Natural Health Products.

 

Bill C-6 provides Health Canada with dramatically expanded powers to :

    1. search private property without a warrant;
    2. seize private property without Court supervision;
    3. destroy private property without Court supervision;
    4. take control of businesses without Court supervision;
    5. in some circumstances to keep seized private property without a Court order;
    6. impose penalties that manufacturers, distributors and retailers in the natural health community could not survive.

The real change brought about by Bill C-6 is not that it protects consumers, as current laws already grant the State significant powers to protect safety.  Rather the real change is the abolition of procedural safeguards citizens currently enjoy.

 

● Bill C-6 abolishes the law of trespass thus allowing the State access onto private property  without any legal recourse.

 

Bill C-6 for the first time in Canadian history allows warrants to be issued to search private  homes without evidence of criminal wrong doing.

 

●Bill C-6 allows the state to seize property for an indefinite period without a Court order, and without reporting the seizure to a Court.

 

● C-6 allows the State to assume control over the movement of private property without a Court  order and without a safety concern.

 

● The search and seizure powers in Bill C-6 are probably unconstitutional for violating the right  found in section 8 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and freedoms to be free from unreasonable search and seizure.

 

● Persons can be fined and have property forfeited to the State for administrative violations.   Persons so charged have no right to have a Court determine their guilt or innocence. Guilt is    determined by the Minister.  There is no defence of due diligence or of honest but mistaken  belief. There does not have to be a safety risk to be charged with an administrative offence.  The Minister who determines your guilt or innocence can keep seized property if he/she finds  you guilty.

 

Retailers and distributors of consumer products become liable for product labeling and  instructions.

 

● Some consumer products such as sporting goods may have to be removed from the market for violating the safety provisions of the Bill.

 

● The federal cabinet can incorporate documents from foreign governments or organizations as law by referring to them in regulations. This will remove Parliamentary scrutiny on issues that could fundamentally change the ground rules for the consumer product industry. 

 

 If foods and  Natural Health products were   added to the jurisdiction of the Bill amending Schedule 1, this would allow for the implementation of foreign standards such  as Codex by passing a regulation.

 

 

 Under subparagraph 20(2)(d) there is no 

limit to:

● how much property can be seized , and

● how long the property can be seized.

 

 There is also:

● no requirement for a warrant prior

to seizure;

● no requirement to report the seizure

to a Court;

● no mechanism to have the seizure and on-going detention reviewed by a Court or independent review board (as in the Hazardous Products Act), and most importantly

 

     Considering that the stated purpose of the Act is to protect our safety, it is curious that there does not have to be a health risk for there to be a seizure. 

 

Currently consumer safety is protected under the Hazardous Products Act, the Criminal Code and Civil Law while respecting the law of trespass.  This raises the question as to whether it is necessary to abolish fundamental property rights under the justification of “consumer protection”.

 

Bills such as Bill C-6 are carefully drafted and it is fair to assume that the power to expand the Bill to cover things such as drugs and Natural Health Products without Parliament’s supervision is deliberate.

 

Bill C-6 was written by Health Canada, the very State Bureaucracy which will benefit from the new powers.  We do not allow the police to write the Criminal Code for much the same reason we do not allow taxpayers to write the tax laws.

 

The Bill poses many more concerns.  One can only wonder with amazement what motivates our elected lawmakers (who come humbly to our doors at election time) to even consider such legislation that gives inspectors of “consumer products” far more powers than any police force in the democratic world who are responsible for the investigation of criminal activity of the highest calibre, where, by comparison, risks abound to them and the public at large.

Individual & Civil Rights

Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize an undercover dictatorship.  To restrict the art of healing to one class of men, and deny equal privilege to others, will be to constitute the Bastille of medical science.  All such laws are un-American and despotic, and have no place in a Republic.  The Constitution of this Republic should make special privilege for medical freedom as well as religiousfreedom,”

Did you know:

 

Meanwhile, the natural health products (NHP) continue to be under attack in blatantly illegal ways including recent raids at gunpoint.

 

This is significant because Health Canada is already acting as if C-6 was in place, and as if consequential amendments had already been made to the Food and Drugs Act. Passing C-6 would legalize Health Canada’s behaviour.

 

Since 2004, the Canadian Natural Health Product Regulations have reduced the number of Products that Canadians can purchase from over 70,000 to less than 40,000.

 

Of these, approximately 10,000 only have been licensed, most being single ingredient products.

Currently, some 35,000 NHPs are still awaiting approval. Thousands of applications for multiple ingredient NHP combinations have sat unprocessed for years because according to Regulation guidelines, they cannot be approved.

 

These will be reduced by about 50-70% yet again, starting in January 2010, because most cannot meet the approval process designed for synthetic drugs.

  • Tri-fold each letter and secure the fold with a piece of tape.
  • Also, do not hesitate to send emails with your concerns and frustrations directly to the bureaucrats at Health Canada. (See email links below)
  • Contacting the government does not require a stamp or an envelope, so bring your letters to the post office or drop them in a mail box
  • Repeat once every 2-3 weeks, until you have received a meaningful response - making sure that you change your written concerns or questions each time you send out a letter.
  • Do not stop with a single letter. Write repeatedly, send them emails, send them faxes: Let them know that you will not be ignored or dissuaded.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT Press Release
FDA Attacks Complementary & Alternative Healthcare
by John F. Gilbert, Ph.D. -  President/NTCB 
 
Ijust spent three days reading, re-reading, researching and discussing the proposed FDA guidelines for "Complementary and Alternative Medicine" with two FDA attorneys.  You can download a copy of this proposal for yourself at: http://www.fda.gov/ohrms/dockets/dockets/06d0480/06d0480.htm.
 
When I first heard about this FDA attack on complementary and alternative health care, I considered it another "Chicken Little" rumor. On further study, I'm appalled at the speed with which the pharmaceutical companies are implementing Codex Alimentarius in the USA.  If you don't suspect the pharmaceutical companies control the FDA, you may want to research that further by visiting http://www.HealthFreedomUSA.org.
 
This insidious proposal is designed to redefine every complementary and alternative health care modality and product as "medicine."  This has direct implications on the services and products provided by every alternative health care professional.  There is no facet of complementary and alternative health care that is not affected. If the FDA adopts this proposal, all natural health care would be illegal even for medical doctors.
 
Essential oils, herbs, herbal remedies, homeopathic remedies, minerals, nutritional supplements, plant enzymes and vitamins are redefined in this proposal as "medicine."  Very simply, medicine is under the jurisdiction of the FDA and, by law, only licensed medical doctors may prescribe "medicines." Anybody else who advises, advocates, counsels, distributes, markets, recommends or suggests anybody use "medicine" is practicing medicine without a license.  This is a felony in the USA punishable by fines and incarceration.
 
Aromatherapy, auricular therapy, biofeedback, color therapy, homeopathy, hypnotism, naturopathy, neurotherapy, nutritional consulting, reflexology, sound therapy and wellness consulting are among the alternative health modalities being redefined as "Alternative Medicine." This subtle change of vocabulary from "alternative health care" to "alternative medicine" makes all of these industries subject to control by the FDA as medicine. Only medical doctors would be allowed to provide, prescribe and supervise the delivery of these services. Anybody else who provided any of these services would be practicing medicine without a license and subject to incarceration and fines.
 
That's the bad news. The good news is we have until April 30, 2007 to voice our opinion against this proposal to eliminate complementary and alternative health care in America. Almost 100,000 people have already filed their objection.  According to Dr. Rima Laibow, medical director of the Natural Therapies Foundation, we need 50 times that many people to respond by the end of the month.
 
Please stand up and be counted. Go to http://tinyurl.com/2u7ghc and file your petition in support of natural health care, in support of complementary and alternative health care as we know it today. If you require more information, please visit http://www.HealthFreedomUSA.org or read the FDA proposed policy
