WHAT IS AN OMBUDSMAN? In this penultimate 1:49 minute video of a 21-part series, Shawn Buckley explains Sections 24-47 of the Charter of Health Freedom, which all outline the creation of a Health Freedom Ombudsman role. These sections identify the purpose of appointing an Ombudsman and how that role serves to protect and uphold access to health freedom for all Canadians. Currently, if a person’s health is being threatened by the removal of a natural health product, they may face an extremely costly and slow process to be heard by a Court, if they even make it to a hearing. One can expect that with the resulting diminished quality of life, most Canadians do not have the time, money or energy to begin this fight. Under the Charter of Health Freedom, the role of the Ombudsman is to act as a voice for the public if their health freedom is being threatened in any way by any federal government department.

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. In the final clip, Shawn will explain Consequential Amendments.
