There is still hope! (Archive in CODEX.)

Subject: A Historic Day - A model for change in Health Freedom
Date: Thu, 23 Oct 2003 07:45:16 -0600

Oct 22, 2003 will go down in the annals of world history. The day that
Canada
spoke out and alerted history forever...

Yesterday Bill C-420 (A bill to amend the Canadian Food and Drugs Act) was
voted
on in the House of Commons. Voting the controversial bill through were 124
Members of Parliament to the opposing side of 85.The bill was fostered and
promoted by Dr. James Lunney (Nanaimo-Alberni). Dr. Lunney has worked
tirelessly
to move the bill through the house, even under great opposition. He has
proved
that one courageous man can make a difference affecting the whole world. I
believe in the end Canada will be seen as a benchmark in the world of Health
Freedom.

The parliamentarians carried the bill saying:
1) That dietary supplements, botanicals, herbs, and other natural health
products are not drugs, but rather are foods.
2) That the Sec 3(1) and 3(2) and Schedule "A" are to be repealed. These
sections prohibit claims from being made on dietary supplements and the
like.

Many of the Members of the House voted across party lines to carry the bill.
A
historic act itself because while many nations are moving under pharma
pressure
to restrict the use of dietary supplements and herbs, Canada is moving in
the
opposite direction. The regulator in Canada (Health Canada) has resisted
change
and is now under extreme pressure because of multiple law suits that have
been
filed against it and some of its employees. These law suits challenge Health
Canada's draconian actions.

Support for the bill was provided by a number of groups, the Red Umbrellas
being
one. http://www.redumbrellas.ca This is a group of individual ladies that
had
been previously diagnosed with depression, bipolar or some other mental
disorder
but have overcome their disorders through the use of a dietary supplement
called
EMPowerplus. www.truehope.com They have been ignored by Health Canada and by
the
minister of health anne mclellan Health Canada has attempted to block the
importation of EMPowerplus and has interfered with valuable research which
was
taking place at the University of Calgary with patients suffering from
bipolar
disorder. Many of the voting M.P.s were seen to be wearing Red Umbrella pins
at
the time of the house vote.

Providing support to the bill as well were the Friends of Freedom
www.friendsoffreedom.org . To date over 100,000 petition names were
delivered
to parliament to protest the actions of Health Canada and support the Foods
are
not Drugs movement.

This is only the beginning of a new day in Canada. More support is needed to
build a movement that the whole world will look to. Many thanks to Dr. James
Lunney and others who gave their support.

Regards,
Anthony Stephan
Truehope

Talk about a much needed victory, considering what happened in Australia and England the last year. My only guess is that the politicians instinctively sense how asleep most people are on this issue, figuring those who are not asleep will be more apt to vote at the polls.
