Bill C-6

“For the first time in Canadian history”, lawyer Shawn Buckley explains, “Bill C-6 not only abolishes the law of trespass, but also allows warrants to be issued to search private homes without evidence of criminal wrongdoing*… in violation of Section 8 of the Charter.”

Part 2

2. Under Bill C-6 (various sections) , “guilt (of anybody considered to violate this act, if the Minister thinks this is so) is determined by the Minister”, not by the courts! (As was the case for the past thousand years since England’s Magna Carta). Since when has any minister greater powers than the courts of the country? Since when is any government official, elected or otherwise, above the law?

3. Bill C-6 , in its preamble on page 1 and again in Section 2 (e) and (f), defines our government as includinga government of a foreign state or of a subdivision of a foreign state”, and “an international organization of states”. Canadians cannot question (or vote out) foreign governments. Canada has the right to enter into treaties – if our elected representatives agree to it, and we have the right to change or rescind such treaties by turfing out our government in the next election – but we did not give our government the right to change the very definition of what we own.

4. In Bill C-6, under Section 36 (2) (a) “any regulation made under this Act may be incorporated by [not by us the voters, but by]… a person or body (who the heck is this?) other than the Minister [i.e. a Canadian, elected MP], including by an organization established for the purpose of writing standards [ Codex? What organizations? Where?] … an industrial or trade organization [on whose boards we don’t sit, whose products we may not want, e.g. pesticide companies etc], or a government” [which one or ones?]. Forget the explanation/doublespeak – REMOVE this section immediately.

Whatever else Bill C-6 states and no matter how benevolent its intended protections – nothing warrants the removal of basic rights, the subversion of the Constitution, the usurpation of our courts, and the dis-empowering of Canadian citizens. C-6 CANNOT be amended – it must be withdrawn totally. Any other bill, containing those provisions, already passed or currently proposed, must also be withdrawn.

BILL C6- The Canadian Governments Plan To Outlaw YOUR GOOD HEALTH

codexThe Canadian government, afraid of the public reaction once people find out what they are trying to pull, is currently fast-tracking a Bill which threatens to strip you of your rights to access a wide range of natural health products.  If it passes, and you buy/sell/share/collect/dry/eat/feed to your family any of the restricted stuff, you become a criminal subject to fines 1000X bigger than those currently in effect.

Please take action to protect your current right to use the foods, herbs, supplements, and therapies:

1. visit: http://www.parl.gc.ca/LEGISINFO/index.asp?Language=E&query=5655&Session=22&List=toc
to form your own opinion about whether this law is good for you
or for your country

2. sign this petition and pass the word to your friends, family, anyone
who cares.  It is important to put your name.  If you leave it blank,
it won’t count in the end.

3. write paper letters, phone, email your MP

The  government is putting out misleading information that this Bill
is OK, that it has none of the nasties that the opponents are claiming.
Let’s take it as a sign that the pressure of opposition is having an effect,
and rather than backing down, let’s keep the pressure steady.

Bill C-51 died, but has now been resurrected by the friends of the pharmaceutical industry in the Harper government.  It seeks to outlaw up to 60 percent of natural health products currently sold in Canada, even while criminalizing parents who give herbs or supplements to their children. The law, known as C-6, was introduced by the Canadian Minister of Health on January 29th, 2009, and it proposes sweeping changes to Canada’s Food and Drugs Act that could have devastating consequences on the health products industry.

Press Facts

Eliminates the Ability of our Elected Officials to Protect Us
Section 30(7) of Bill C-51

  1. Bypassing our elected official’s ability to vote out laws that are not the will of, or in the interest of the Canadian people.
  2. Allows government agents, (not elected officials) to create binding laws behind closed doors.
  3. New powers will allow enforcement of these laws by the searching and seizing of private property and bank accounts without warrants.

Fast Tracks New Drugs to Market; Reduced Safety Measures

  1. By shortening the approval process for new drugs.
  2. By placing the responsibility of safety on drug companies with a proven track record of downplaying the health risks and side effects.

Increased numbers of adverse drug reactions will lead to an increase in malpractice and personal law suits against doctors who prescribe new drugs which have not been tested properly for health and safety risks.

University of Arizona, concluded that overall, the cost of U.S. drug related morbidity and mortality exceed $177.4 billion in the year 2000 with over 200,000 deaths created annually.

Ernst F.R., Grizzle A.J., Drug Related Morbidity and Mortality: Updating the Cost-of-Illness Model, J Am Pharm Assoc. 2001;41:192-9

Makes Upwards of 70% of Natural Health Products illegal

  1. At the current rate of licensing failure, more than 70% of natural health products will be illegal.
  2. Broad definitions will allow government agents to invoke enforcement on people who do as little as share a “therapeutic product” with a friend. Garlic and many other foods are therapeutic products.

Not “one” person has ever died in Canada because of a Natural Health Product.

Bill C-51 is not about Canadian Safety

Bill C-51 is about Big Pharma

Bill C-51 will allow binding laws to be created in secret

In Canada the law making process takes place in a public forum with our elected officials voting for or against them. They are held accountable to the public for their decisions. If Bill C-51 passes, it will allow laws to be created behind closed doors, by government agents who may not have our best interests in mind.
