Canada’s Charter of Health Freedom Voice, Mailed In!

Double the amount of envelopes received in half the amount of time! The NHPPA team cannot overstate how encouraged we are to see national involvement at store, clinic and public level grow. A systemic and collective spirit has emerged to support the effort. A small handful of resolute NHP manufacturers have allied with us. They send printed petition sheets, petition posters and “Help Us Fight Back” brochures to their customers in product shipments. THAT is the wheels within wheels process that we want to continue to foster. If this momentum continues there is a good chance that the Charter of Health Freedom and its partner petition will have a firm place in Canadian history.

A Different Kind of Federal Election Lawn Sign

Conspicuous, unmistakable, public demonstration. Brent from Calgary embodies the spirit of an activist. Of his own volition, this freedom fighter took NHPPA’s “Do You Want My Vote?” MP postcard campaign to another level. Using the self-print downloadable postcard file available on our website, Brent had the image blown-up to create this emphatic lawn sign. We couldn’t love it more! What an effectual strategy to amplify his voice in opposition of the Self-Care Framework. Now, if we only had access to a few city buses in Ottawa!

Foods Are Banned in Therapeutic Forms. Send An Email.

This interview contains nearly indescribable value. You’ll hear one Aha! moment* after another. If you’re an NHPPA supporter, you’re likely someone reunited with wellness by infusing your body with products from the Earth. You can freely grow herbs in your home garden or forage for them in designated forests. But once these plants are distilled, encapsulated or ground for therapeutic purposes, the government gets involved and restricts access.

Shawn Buckley July 2019 Interview with Hugh Reilly

Counterpoint? Leave it to the independent media. On July 16, 2019, Shawn Buckley joined ardent NHPPA supporter, Hugh Reilly of ThatChannel.com, for an interview (40 minute watch), on “Health Canada Destroying Health Freedom”. Hugh explores, with interesting insight, the dire situation we are facing with Health Canada’s regulatory changes of natural health products (NHPs). Shawn reveals new impacts the changes will have on our access to NHPs and the information we need to make informed decisions about them.

This interview was held one day after the NDP Health Critic, MP Don Davies, was browbeaten nationally by a CBC reporter. He was ridiculed for his position on the changes Health Canada has set in motion. He was silenced for questioning the Self-care Framework, including what it means for NHPs and Canadians’ ability to access them. “Don Davies is being attacked deliberately by the major media to basically ensure that the NDP supports this new Self-care Framework going into the election. And I think all of us need to be contacting Don Davies and the NDP leader today, and saying we support what you’re doing.”

Help Us Fight Back Brochure

NHPPA’s “Do You Want My Vote?” MP postcards have had an unsung companion piece, doing its job, to incite action. Launched in April 2019, the “Help Us Fight Back” brochure gives consumers the “main points of the issue” along with the names of four civil servants to call directly. Thousands have been printed and shipped to stores across Canada. Many more were printed by local stakeholders themselves! Thank you for that, retailers and clinics! “Help Us Fight Back” has offered consumers the highlights about the threat to their personal freedoms. You, like many other Canadians we’ve spoken to over the past several months, may be wondering why NHPPA is encouraging you to call agency employees.

We answer that question from the facts that were revealed in research about the latest assault on the natural health product industry: the four bureaucrats listed on the postcard and brochure make up the “committee” of “senior management” who are responsible for the origin of the Self-Care Framework. They are the ones who laid down the “non-negotiable” principles to make changes to NHP regulation happen.

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!

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.”
