Shawn Buckley Interview with Hugh Reilly

“We are bringing changes into our food and drug regulations where basically we are going to guarantee that it will be illegal in Canada to ever use a natural health product to treat a serious health condition”. On May 12, 2018, while in Toronto for the Total Health Show, Shawn Buckley sat down with Hugh Reilly of ThatChannel.com for a candid interview (53 minute watch), ‘Health Canada is causing harm to Canadians. Canadians will hold them accountable.’

• Shawn Buckley’s unusual shift into advocating for natural health products and practices after representing Health Canada in an action against Strauss Naturals (0:55)

• Health Canada tried make the sale of TrueHope’s EMPowerplus formula illegal despite evidence that consumers depended on it for their survival after chemical anti-psychotic drugs stopped working (6:55)

• Health Canada’s new “failed efficacy” meme created to make Canadians believe they need protection from natural health products (21:27)

• How important censorship of truthful information is to Health Canada in the drug approval process (29:25)

• Help NHPPA succeed in pushing back against Health Canada’s proposed new regulation changes (35:54)

• The Charter of Health Freedom is the answer to solving the problem, permanently (44:00)

“Whose choice is it of what you can take when you have a health crisis? Health Canada believes that they have the absolute right to decide what treatments you are allowed to access and, even more importantly, an absolute right to what information you are allowed to have. Because our system is based on censorship.”


New Trial Ordered for David and Collet Stephan

New trial ordered! NHPPA’s heartfelt congratulations to David and Collet Stephan! In 2016 David and Collet were convicted of failing to provide the necessities of life to their son Ezekiel. Shawn Buckley was their trial counsel and can tell you, that in his opinion, there were significant problems with how the Crown conducted the trial and with some of the Judge’s rulings. For example, the Crown was able to lead repetitive evidence from doctor after doctor to overwhelm the Jury with an atmosphere of danger constructed from their assumptions of how Ezekiel was presenting.

On the other hand, the Stephans were prevented from having a witness who visited with Ezekiel the night before from speaking freely. Similarly the Stephans called the Chief Medical Examiner for the Province of Alberta at the time of Ezekiel’s death. This doctor was prevented from giving her opinion, something that had never happened before on the hundreds of occasions she was an expert witness for the State. She has more than likely not been muzzled since when called to testify for the State.

New Discussion Paper Released by Shawn Buckley: The Repeal of the Natural Health Product Regulations

A message from Shawn Buckley: “I would like to thank all of you for remaining active supporters of NHPPA. Our collective ability to make a difference in protecting our freedom to decide how to take care of ourselves depends upon our ability to take coordinated action. For example, during the Bill C-51 campaign in 2008, I was told at a meeting at the Prime Minister’s office that the anti-Bill C-51 mail was being delivered in wheel barrows because there was so much of it. That was you making a difference. Bill C-51 was never passed.

Because the opposition to Bill C-51 was so strong, Health Canada devised a new way to get the severe penalties and powers to apply to natural products. They came out with Bill C-17 which brought in the powers and penalties for a new category of “therapeutic product”. Therapeutic product was defined to exclude natural health products as that term is defined in the Natural Health Products Regulations. Because natural health products were excluded, the public did not raise a fuss and Bill C-17 passed. The NHPPA had called Bill C-17 a Trojan Horse. The danger of the change brought about by Bill C-17 is that Health Canada can make the powers and penalties that were in Bill C-51 applicable to natural products by simply amending the Natural Health Product Regulations.

Our concern is coming to pass.

Health Canada has published a time table for repealing the Natural Health Product Regulations.

Authors of Premier Medical Textbook Didn’t Disclose $11 Million in Industry Payments, Statnews.com

Bias between the covers? This March 6, 2018 article (3 minute read), “Authors of premier medical textbook didn’t disclose $11 million in industry payments”, by Adam Marcus and Ivan Oransky of Statnews.com, reveals the findings of a study showing that, between 2009 and 2013, authors of the world’s most recognized medical textbook profited in the millions from the makers of chemical drugs and medical devices. ”One author, a physician, during that period received nearly $870,000 in funding, including for research, according to ProPublica’s Dollars For Docs database of payments to doctors from drug companies”. Medical students, who learn from the text, are blind to the conflict of interest.


Shawn Buckley Interview on ThatChannel.com

There are two sides to the public safety issue. Health Canada’s side and the truth. On April 13, 2018, Daniel Katz and Hugh Reilly of ThatChannel.com, posted an interview (40 minute watch), “Shawn Buckley on the true purpose of Health Canada”. They discuss the latest Health Canada tactics. Shawn goes into detail about how he views Health Canada as not working in the best interests of Canadians’ health. He was asked, “Who is going to step up, that has the power, to act in the best interests of Canadians?” He responds clearly and decisively – the public. Citizen outrage and sustained action is one of the most effective ways to protect a restricted future. If you haven’t already, subscribe to our email list for specific actions you can take to protect your freedoms. NHPPA produces the pressure campaigns but our only power comes from you. Learn more at the Total Health Show this weekend. We love meeting freedom fighters in person. Shawn is lecturing in Room 204 Saturday at 11am and Sunday at 4pm. He promises, “I’ll scare the pants off you about what’s happening in our drug regulation scheme, if you come.”


Remembering Trueman Tuck

Remembering Trueman Tuck, a strong advocate for health freedom. “I wanted to send out a remembrance for Trueman Tuck. He came to my mind today because I wish he was here for the new battle ahead of us. When I was first learning about Health Canada unfairly attacking natural products, I had the pleasure of meeting Trueman. At the time he had been involved in trying to protect natural products for years. He was always happy to share his knowledge and his thoughts. One of the things that I am indebted to Trueman for is his belief that the common person can make a difference. That we simply have to stand up for our rights and we can protect them. If enough of us get together, we can make a difference. Trueman lived by his belief. He was tireless in trying to educate and motivate citizens to take positive action. He was constantly writing and meeting with Health Canada officials and MPs in an effort to protect natural products. He had an energy for protecting our freedoms that never waned. He set an example for us to live by. We have lost a champion.” – Shawn Buckley

An internet search on Trueman Tuck offers a number of tributes and stories of his tireless work for health freedom. He passed away on January 10, 2016.
