A Question of Balance by Rick DeSylva Sep 1/10

In the July/August 2010 issue of The Agora Master Herbalist and NHPPA Board Member, Rick DeSylva has written a thought provoking article titled, A Question of Balance. Having 30 years of experience in the natural health community, Rick provides his perspective on Bill C-36 and the Natural Health Products Regulations. Rick asserts, “we as adults – [are] fully capable of making all necessary decisions for our own bodies, and in keeping with our own belief system, have the inalienable right to determine what is best for us, and to have access to those substances via appropriate regulations.”

Shawn Buckley on PI Window on Business Jul 28/10

Shawn spoke to Jon Hansen, blogtalkradio’s PI Window on Business host. 

 Jon has called the show “Criminalizing the Sale of Natural Health Products?” Jon writes “Against this backdrop we are once again pleased to welcome our health care industry thought leader Jeff Knott and the NHPPA’s Buckley, to discuss natural health products from both a patient’s rights and treatment effectiveness standpoint.”

Jeff Knott will be answering from a mainstream medicine perspective and Shawn, from the natural health paradigm. Should be interesting. Tune in and post your thoughts on the interview on NHPPA’s Facebook page.

Newly Released 23 Minute Short Documentary Film
– A Question of Sovereignty

Kevin Miller, an award winning writer, producer, and director (Generation RX and We Become Silent: The Last Days of Health Freedom) comments on his new documentary film: 
“Quietly, over a period of many years, unconstitutional legislation encompassed in Bills C-51, C-6, and the current Bill C-36 have placed not only basic civil liberties and freedoms at risk, but Canada’s national sovereignty as well. The film shares how entangling alliances with groups like the World Trade Organization, the World Health Organization, Codex Alimentarius, the United States and even multinational corporate interests have become so powerful that they literally threaten to make elected officials in Parliament irrelevant.

A QUESTION OF SOVEREIGNTY discusses why this dramatic shift in the balance of power puts the nation and its people at a vital crossroad early in the 21st century — and why some of the past giants of Canadian politics may hold the answers to Canada’s future.”
