New NHPPA Opinion Piece and Articles Mar 26/12


Shawn Buckley and the NHPPA research, write and distribute information and opinion pieces as part of our core work. Until the actions of Health Canada come under proper scrutiny, in accordance with Canadian law and democratic practice, we cannot, and will not stop placing the issues where they will be read, understood and passed on. We are encouraged to see that doubt for the future of the industry is spreading. This doubt will turn into action.

Our concerns for the impact of the 2004 NHP Regulations, and the opportunity they afforded to unelected officials for abuse and corruption have been dismissed by many as ‘fearmongering’ but now the word is spreading beyond the core industry believers. As smaller companies go to the wall, with very little power of redress, the unsayable can be printed. The questions are becoming accusations, the evidence of harm is too widespread to gloss over as inadvertent.

This month, several new devastating examples of the power of the written word are available for you to use to inform your networks and grow the push back.

Shawn Buckley On The Vinny Eastwood Show Mar 19/12

New Zealand’s Vinny Eastwood recently invited Shawn onto his show: Guerilla Radio.

Vinny quit the telecommunications industry when he noticed that when he lied to the customer the company’s profit margins went up. He went out with frustration at the mainstream media and began to make his own news by interviewing activists about real issues that truly affect New Zealand and the world. His show now broadcasts worldwide 5 days a week, including across the USA on American Freedom Radio.

Of Shawn’s interview Vinny wrote, “Shawn Buckley…exposing incredibly dangerous draconian legislation being passed to rob people of their rights to life, liberty and property, and not least of all their most basic health freedom!”

Charter of Health Freedom Petition Update Mar 8/12

Thanks to all of you who have been sending your completed petition sheets to our new Ontario address, they have been arriving safely, as have the redirected pages from BC. The counting continues, and we are delighted to update you with a very exciting milestone.

As of today, the NHPPA has 85,490 petition signatures.

Since the launch of the Charter of Health Freedom on September 10 2008, the NHPPA has aimed to make the petition in its support the largest in Canadian history. 3 million signatures is our goal, that’s 10% of our nation’s population. And we’re confident that this number is achievable because of concerned Canadians like you.

But where do we stand, what benchmark are we trying to exceed?


  • The largest single petition to be presented to the House of Commons in Ottawa in the last 5 years was for the Employment Insurance Program for the extension of medical benefits. This petition had a total of 85,421 signatures.

With 85,490 signatures we have already created the largest federal petition the Canadian government has seen since Feb 19 2007!

  • The largest petition in the last 15 years was a series of related petitions against Child Pornography. This series totaled 96,065 signatures.
We are 89% of the way towards the largest federal petition in 15 years. But, we know that Canadians are so incensed at the loss of their rights and freedoms that we can aim to top the largest petition in Canadian history.
  • We want to collect more signatures than the 625,510, presented on Feb 9 1949, regarding the creation of a Bill of Rights!
Here are two ways for you can make a difference:

1) If you haven’t already, CLICK HERE to download a printable version of the Charter of Health Freedom petition. Then get your family, friends, colleagues, classmates and customers to sign the petition. The NHPPA is collecting the completed petitions so send them to this address: 5070 Fountain Street North, Breslau, ON N0B 1M0.

2) Within the next month, download a printable copy of the Charter of Health Freedom itself and send or take it to your Member of Parliament. The next campaign we will be rolling out will require that your MP understands the Charter. Add a note that you will be following up in a few weeks to seek your MP’s thoughts. Be persistent! We are actively seeking an MP to present the petition to parliament…and this will create huge grass-roots popularity.
