Charter to 308 MPs Post-Campaign Report

WHEN TO ACT 

In order to make an impact we need every MP to hear about the Charter, from multiple sources, at the same time.

It is important that you act this monthbefore the end of May 2013 when this campaign closes.

Flood every constituency office with facts about the Charter of Health Freedom, in a form they can’t ignore.

THE ACTION

!

We need at least one person from each of the 308 ridings to deliver our new Charter of Health Freedom package to their MP.

WHY DO THIS NOW?

This is a critical time for the Charter Of Health Freedom. We are nearing a landmark 96,000 signatures on the petition. This is no small feat. Canadian history will show you how our petition stacks up. This will make it the largest federal petition in the last 15 years.

We want to identify an MP to present this petition in support of the Charter to the House of Commons. To give all MPs an opportunity to be part of this historic public message, they need to fully understand the issues.

It is also important to capitalize on recent press coverage of the regulation of NHPs. You can read the current debates and conversations here.

As mainstream media take notice be certain that MPs will be watching.

Debating with Health Canada May 14/13

debate

FOLLOWING THE CONTROVERSY?

Shawn Buckley has recently drafted an assessment of the exchange.

Over the last few months two debates have sprung up in the media, as a result of Health Canada employees taking exception to articles which lay bare the current crisis in the natural health community. Shawn Buckley has now written an overview and reply to both.

First, Adam Gibson’s Letter to the Editor “Crying Wolf” was printed in Alive Magazine in response to Shawn’s article “Safe or Unsafe?

Then, Dr. Rona’s Letter to Alive Magazine’s editor “Noisy Spin Control” went to print to oppose statements made by Adam Gibson and in defense of Shawn and the NHPPA.

As if this was not already an excellent volley, Dr. Gifford-Jones’ Toronto Sun article “Health Canada: Where are the dead bodies?” was met with a response by Scott Sawler and published directly on Health Canada’s website.

Both replies are similar and use figures which evade the issues at hand, but what’s important is that Health Canada’s NHPD entered the debate!

We sincerely hope that the conversation will move from mere contradiction to a considered analysis of the issues over time.

We have been posting the articles, letters and replies on the NHPPA FaceBook page as they have come out. However, since the stories are intertwined and ongoing, we thought it was time for a summary.

An excerpt from Shawn’s overview, “I don’t think that any of us expect Health Canada to agree with concerns on how they regulate natural health products. At the same time, I would rather have them stay silent than to use a canned argument that is misleading and does not address the concerns raised. These are important issues and we cannot arrive at the best regulatory environment for natural products unless we honestly and fairly debate legitimate concerns and issues.”

Read Shawn’s complete overview.

Follow us on Facebook and tell us what you think. Is it a good thing that Health Canada is taking notice of the dissent?
