En français, s’il vous plaît?

Deux de nos documents les plus populaires, en français. Qu’est-ce que ça veut dire? You are a loyal NHPPA supporter. You have read all our posts. Well, at least those that your settings allow, those that have significant engagement or those that we boost! Many of you have liked and shared a few. Many of you quite often! We see every one. We could not have achieved our national success without that kind of action. Last year we dialed up our reach with a fundamental characteristic of the Canadian identity. The Francophone public and professional community across the country can confidently educate themselves and their networks on Health Canada’s assaults on health freedom. Impossible n’est pas français //Impossible isn’t French. We quite like this French idiom for NHPPA’s work. “There’s no such thing as “impossible!”
These two French handouts, and all our other current public education materials, in both French and English, can be found within our Action Kits.
 
We would like nothing more than to have all of Shawn Buckley’s Discussion Papers translated. We do what we can within the limited budget we have. Donate to support our ability to offer activists and advocates more French push back!

Calgary Health Show February 2019 | NHPPA New & Popular Booth Handouts & Materials

#throwbackthursday Three of three posts from the February 2019 Calgary Health Show. The last two years had NHPPA put a strong focus on educating the public, practitioners, retailers and manufacturers on the threats facing Canadians’ access to natural health products and practices. Our attendance in Western Canada allowed us to continue this effort. NHPPA’s support materials are concise and uncomplicated. Yet, complex discussion papers written by Shawn Buckley can be your reference after you share “the problem” among your networks with our easy-to-digest handouts.

Shawn Buckley’s 2019 Calgary Health Show Lecture

#throwbackthursday Second of three posts from February 2019. Check out the video recording (50 minute watch) of Shawn Buckley’s Calgary Health Show talk. Shawn gave a repeat presentation of his lecture called, “Censorship, Science and Belief”. He presents compelling insight to the dangers facing public health when Health Canada’s proposed self-care framework is implemented, grouping natural health products and non-prescription chemical drugs. In Canada, safe and effective natural remedies have never seen such a threat to access. Shawn asserts “We need to create a citizen rebellion, again.”

Consequential Amendments | Shawn Buckley Explains

CONSEQUENTIAL AMENDMENTS In this final 1:06 minute video of a 21-part series, Shawn Buckley explains Section 48 of the Charter of Health Freedom, “Consequential Amendments”. This section is an amendment to the existing Statutory Instruments Act which protects new laws from encroaching upon our rights as laid out by the Constitution and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The Charter of Health Freedom would be added to the list of documents that protect Canadians’ freedom. Going forward any law drafted would have to adhere to a baseline level of established rights so that no existing freedom can be infringed upon.

As the author of this standalone Act, Shawn Buckley makes clear the key features of each section. He breaks down the proposed legislation into language that everyone can understand.

We hope you have learned a lot about the Charter of Health Freedom through this series and encourage you to use these videos to explain the importance of this proposed document to others.

Pure North’s Change.org (Online) Petition and Charter of Health Freedom (Paper) Petition

Reaffirming our mission. Pure North, longtime supporters of NHPPA, recently launched a change.org petition to stop Health Canada’s proposed changes to natural health product regulation. Add your signature. We share and applaud any organization who pushes the matter of health freedom further into public awareness. NHPPA is committed to the Charter of Health Freedom’s foundational paper petition. The paper petition Canadians have seen circulating, since September 2008, remains the most significant way to ask for a change in the law. Online petitions, like Pure North’s, are a powerful way to disseminate a social message, and create visibility quickly, in an online dominant world.

Charter of Health Freedom Petition Update Jul 24/19

There is always talk about being in the 6 digits. We, and that means you, made it to the petition paragon! Now at 101,407 signatures! It is the third largest single Federal paper petition, pending delivery to Parliament, in the last 70 years. Let that sink in for a moment. This new total represents another 4,560 signatures gathered since our update a year ago by dozens of natural health product stores, practitioners and individual health freedom advocates. Every additional petition page filled with signatures demonstrates a significant effort. We know there are many retailers, practitioners and citizens with active petition stations still collecting signatures. This number is far from static! Your actions truly matter.

Information about this petition update, how it stacks up against other federal petitions and how a petition can (and has) changed laws was researched for accuracy and is now shared!

“A Complete List of Alternatives to the Google Search Engine”, Collective Evolution


It has been talked about for over a year. Google. The most popular search engine. The one that is your habit. You might have noticed changes in search results in the past month due to what Google is calling, Google’s most recent broad core algorithm updates. An article (3 minute read) published on July 7, 2019 on Collective Evolution, by Arjun Walia, “A Complete list of Alternatives to the Google Search Engine”, shed some light on what the changes mean for the natural health industry. He writes, “We are living in a very interesting time, one in where we have a ‘ministry of truth’ that is quite Orwellian….”
