Freedom in Crisis Lecture Tour National Press Release Distributed Nov 22/10

Press Release Highlights

“Bill C-36 is sold to us as necessary for our safety,” says Buckley, “but if I’m correct, this bill represents one of the most unsafe legal moves – certainly in my lifetime.”

Responding to outrage from consumers and vendors of natural health products, the government and MPs from all parties backed off, specifically exempting natural health products in the latest version – Bill C-36.

In spite of the exemption, Buckley remains concerned that Bill C-36 is still a ‘Trojan horse’ that will ultimately pave the way for government to re-introduce the same sweeping provisions that by-pass the rule of law to apply to Canada’s natural health industry, which has been under siege since natural health products (NHP’s) were included under the Food & Drug Act in 2004. As a result of Natural Health Product regulations, thousands of products have become unavailable to consumers, restricting access to healthcare alternatives.

Buckley is giving a cross-country lecture tour–Freedom in Crisis—November 18 to December 7 to alert the public about the potential threat to rights and freedoms that Bill C-36 poses, as well as to the negative impact the Natural Health Product Regulations will have on NHP businesses and consumers as the regulations come into full force. Buckley will also be providing a guide for NHP businesses to help vendors understand their rights and protect their businesses in the event of a Health Canada raid.

It should not be a surprise to anyone paying attention that the NHP Regulations as they are currently drafted can only lead to the loss of the majority of NHPs that we have traditionally had the freedom to use.  Under our current regulatory regime, all natural health products are deemed by law to be dangerous and illegal.  The starting point is that all must be removed from the market. The only exceptions are those products that can overcome a number of barriers created by the Regulations. 

The barriers will change over time, but anyone thinking that changing them will solve the problem is missing what is happening.
