Total Health Show May 2018 | NHPPA Show Report and Photo Gallery

Day 1 of 3 | Friday May 11, 2018

Julia Rickert (National Campaign Director and Executive Coordinator) and Jill Taylor (Director of Outreach) at Shawn Buckley’s (President) Charter of Health Freedom film shoot with Dave Delouchery of Hawkeye Films. Each section of the Charter has been made simpler to understand and easier to share with your network. Edited sections will be posted weekly on NHPPA’s Facebook starting August 2018.

NHPPA’s belief in maintaining freedom of choice is as important now as it’s ever been. Shawn is excited to help all Canadians understand the legal value of the proposed Charter of Health Freedom.

Booth set up and ready for a 4:00 pm show start.

It’s absurd to consider banning parsley or peanut butter. And it’s completely impossible to ban lighting. Yet, these ridiculous actions would protect more Canadians than Health Canada’s ever-stricter NHP regulations. We launched our new $30 ‘BAN’ T-Shirts fundraiser to support our upcoming actions.

New handout materials were created to share with those in your sphere of influence.

Are Natural Health Products Under Attack?

Renegotiating The Terms of Our Surrender

The Right to Treat Your Health Naturally is Under Threat

We had plenty of blank petition pages on hand with our new Charter of Health Freedom petition update “You + 96,497“. It includes information on why the petition is on paper and not online!

Day 2 of 3 | Saturday May 12, 2018

Julia and Shawn welcome NHPPA’s new [2018] Vice President Genevieve Eliany.

Shawn presents his first of two lectures on the topic of Censorship, Science, Belief.

The talk is linked at the bottom of this photo gallery page.

Shawn was happy to engage with NHPPA’s booth visitors after his lecture. Important questions were asked and answered.

Genevieve engaged with veteran and new booth visitors. As a result, many signatures were added to the Charter of Health Freedom petition.


Previewed at the show was one of NHPPA’s first actions after our education phase is complete: a national MP letter writing campaign that includes Shawn’s distressing analysis found in his Discussion Paper “The Repeal of the Natural Health Product Regulations” aka “Renegotiating the Terms of Our Surrender”. 

Advocates of other freedom of choice movements inspire our work. Shawn and Heather Fraser, author of The Peanut Allergy Epidemic.

A meeting with Heather Fraser, Del Bigtree, host of The Highwire with Del Bigtree and producer of the documentary, VAXXED, and members of Vaccine Choice Canada to discuss many issues surrounding vaccination protocols in Canada.

Shawn was a featured guest on the Robert Scott Bell Show where they discussed health freedom and “healing liberty” as RSB so accurately calls it.

Watch/listen to Shawn’s interview with RSB here.

Jill and Julia could not let a photo opp with RSB slip away!

The team welcomed David Stephan who stopped by the show on his way to the Supreme Court of Canada in Ottawa for the appeal of his and Collet Stephan’s convictions in the death of their son, Ezekiel. Two days later we were thrilled to learn of the Supreme Court’s decision that ordered a new trial.

Day 3 of 3 | Sunday May 13, 2018

Fired up and ready for day three!

Shawn presents his second of two lectures on the topic of Censorship, Science, Belief.

The talk is linked at the bottom of this photo gallery page.

Those in attendance left with anger to put to purpose. The censorship of truthful information as a result of Health Canada’s current and forthcoming regulations is shocking. As promised in Shawn’s lecture summary, he will “scare the pants off you about what’s happening in our drug regulation scheme.”

Attendees vie for Shawn’s time after his eye-opening lectures. A crowd waited for Shawn in the hallway to ask their most pressing questions.

Sunday afternoon was a busy time. Shawn’s lectures drive a wave of supporters to the booth to collect our latest handouts in order to in inform themselves and share messages of health freedom with friends, families and colleagues.

Keira discusses the contents of NHPPA’s Censorship Compendium.

Jeffrey Smith, founder of the Institute for Responsible Technology, best selling
author and producer of the documentary, Genetic
Roulette – The Gamble of Our Lives, visited the NHPPA team after giving his own featured lecture at the show.

Del Bigtree stopped by the NHPPA booth to chat about our work and, of course, the team took advantage of another photo op!

NHPPA’s long-time friend, Michael Schmidt stopped by the booth on Sunday to help celebrate another successful weekend of freedom fighting!
