More Than 500 Health Professionals Protest Bill S-10

Over 500 physicians, scientists and researchers, led by the Urban Health Research Initiative, a program of the B.C. Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS, the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network, and the Canadian Public Health Association are making an argument that Bill S10 is both ineffective and expensive.

Bill S10 is drug legislation that includes mandatory minimum sentences of 6-9 months for growing 6 or more marijuana plants, and 12-18 months for making any hashish (including baked goods!) This is the first time in Canada's history that a minimum sentence has been set for marijuana.

The Health Care professionals sent a letter to Stephen Harper and opposition leaders that said:
“We, the undersigned, are concerned that the federal government is pursuing significant amendments to federal drug legislation, through Bill S-10, which are not scientifically grounded and which research demonstrates may actually contribute to health and social harms in our communities,”

Although the government has not produced detailed budget estimates regarding the potential cost of implementing mandatory minimum sentences, similar sentencing regimes introduced in the United States have cost taxpayers billions of dollars. During these difficult economic times, this raises the question of why the federal government proposes to spend scarce financial resources on policies that have been shown to be expensive, ineffective and harmful.”

These are the kind of laws that we wrote about in our previous post HERE. The federal government is hell bent on building new jails, and filling them up. Regardless of what any professional or the people of Canada have to say.

I applaud the professionals as they stand up for us. But we in turn need to stand up and support them as well! Please send them an email to let them know that you ARE standing with them on this issue.

Privatized Prisons Coming To A Community Near You?

In the summer of 2010, Stockwell Day announced that the federal government would be "investing" 9.5 billion dollars into news jails, and renovations to existing prisons.
For all of the unreported crimes, that studies show are rising. I still to this day have not figured that one out. How does the government know how many unreported crimes there is? They are not reported.

Here is the video of Stockwell's announcement.

There is a method to the madness behind this. Canada has flirted with the idea of privately owned and operated prisons for many years now.

The Penetanguishene Correctional Center was a striking attempt at getting in on the controversial private-prison craze that has swept the United States, where for-profit businesses now run over 150 prisons. This experiment ended with failure in 2006.

The man behind the idea of privatized jails in Canada was and is Rob Sampson. He spearheaded the Penetanguishene experiment, and was the head of the review panel that decided to give this massive funding to build new prisons.

Before entering politics, his career was in, yup you guessed it banking. He worked for Toronto Dominion Bank from 1980 to 1987, and at the Toronto branch of Chase Manhattan from 1987 to 1995.

The Canadian government is also creating insane laws and sentencing, at the same time. Between Bill-C36, Bill-S10, and the mandate to link small petty crimes with organized crime, with huge mandatory sentences. This brings many more prisoners, for much longer time frames.

In a time that our government is selling off crown corporations, and discussing selling more. It is only a matter of time before they start openly talking about privatizing our prisons. More than likely it will be shortly after the new jails, and renovations are complete.

What we are seeing is the formation of a win/win situation for the bankers. Our tax money will fund there jails expansions, and our government is setting the laws to lock more and more Canadians up. American companies run by the bankers will then come and buy our jails. Brand new and filled with prisoners.

These prisoners will become the modern day Canadian slaves. Working extended hours for as little as twenty five cents a hour. Building appliances and other products.

Doesn't the sounds of this make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside? I know it sure makes me feel safer know our government wants to enslave us, and hand over every piece of our nation to the banking elite!

How To Detox Aluminum From Your Body

With the large amount of aerosol spraying (chemtrails) that is taking place over us on a daily basis. Is is vital that we learn how to protect ourselves from the chemicals in them, as much as possible.

The main ingredient in the chemtrails, seems to be aluminum. The toxic effects of aluminum are believed to be a major culprit in many diseases, including Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease, various dementia's and bone diseases. Also Rheumatoid Arthritis, AIDS - Autoimmune Disorders, allergies, constipation, epilepsy, and heart problems, hyper- activity, kidney diseases, Osteoporosis, Schizophrenia, and more.

There are many other ways out there, other then the detox method that I will explain. But this is the most simple, effective and cost effective one that I have found.

If you can incorporate at least one of these into your diet, you will be well on your way.

Drink 2 - 3 glasses of water with half of a lemon freshly squeezed into it a day. Lemon water will speed up your metabolism, thus promoting circulation and the elimination of toxins.

Use kelp (fresh or supplement). Kelp and seaweed are the most protective natural resources against radiation and environmental pollution, particularly heavy metals.

Drink homemade fruit juices in the morning on an empty stomach. Fruit acids are very effective detoxifiers.

Cilantro fresh, or in supplement form. Cilantro binds to heavy metals and helps remove them from your body (garlic is also effective).

Activated charcoal has been used since ancient times as a powerful poison antidote and to get rid of toxins. Very effective in drawing out the aluminum and fluoride build up in your bones.

Other than adding at least one of these to your diet, the usual actions for a detox of any kind apply. Lots of exercise, staying away from the processed foods, and my favorite getting a half hour here and there in the sauna.

I hope these tips help you out, and if you have any other methods or suggestions please share in the comments section.

Harper and Obama To Discuss The New North American Security Perimeter On Friday

In December the story about the North American Security Perimeter made the headlines. While government officials denied this at first, they eventually confirmed it. Now on Friday February the 4th 2011, Stephen Harper will be in Washington D.C. To discuss this "deal" with Obama.

The government is being very tight lipped when it comes to the details of this plan. Which has been called a "deal designed to ensure the vital trade flow between Canada and its largest trading partner is not choked off by the aggressive U.S. security bureaucracy".

"The New Border Vision is being billed as a 21st century border management system that will include new common consumer product regulations, a pre-clearance agreement for goods crossing the border to expedite waiting times and the use of advanced technology to utilize biometric data for travelers at airports and land crossings, according to people familiar with the plan".

What can be expected if this deal becomes official?

Well we can already see it taking shape. The department of homeland security would effectively take control of the Canadian Border. As we have written about here, The American military will be patrolling the Canadian - American border with unmanned predator drone planes. The use of advanced technology to utilize biometric data, is already in use by the department of homeland security. Watch the video on their website here. They would only be expanding this program into Canada.

Add in Bill C-42, An Act to amend the Aeronautics Act that would require Canadian airline carriers that fly over the U.S. to provide the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with passenger information. This includes name, date of birth, gender, as well as passport and itinerary details when applicable. And what else is there left for us to cede to the Americans? Only making it "official" by telling the Canadian people?

Heck the Toronto Star even posted an article in June of 2010, that openly states:
"Want a faster frontier experience? Cede Canadian land to U.S. customs agents who’ll in turn make the trucks run on time". source

You would think that Canadians would be mad as all hell over this right? Nope not most of them. Most are totally in the dark about it, and most of those who are aware. Are leaving comments like these.

"With what is going on in the world today the Americans have every right to tighten up their borders. Unfortunately, like the idiot at the Calgary airport that made an issue of an 80 year old ladies breast prothesis the petty bureaucrats who will carry out the rules can't stop abusing their authority which will further widen the relationship between our two countries. Another win for the terrorists."

"85% of our exports go to the US, the less restriction the better."

We as a country do not need to hand over our land, resources, or sovereignty to any foreign nation! Especially not one as corrupt and Illegal as the American government, and their goons at the TSA. I urge all Canadians to stand up! Talk to your friends and neighbors, hold street actions, write your elected officials, anything. Do not just sit back, and fall deeper into tyranny,

Al Gore Still Trying To Push Global Warming Amidst Heavy Snow Storms

One thing I can say about Al Gore is that he sure does not know when to quit! After 31,000 scientist's including the founder of the weather network, all trying to sue him, and all signing a petition stating that man made global warming is a fraud. After the "climategate" email scandal, that proved that most of the computer models used by the IPCC had been "tricked" (in other words falsified). He is still holding tight!

After Bill O'Reilly made some kind of comments about the snow storms hitting New York, and the northeast recently. Al Gore posted this response on his blog.

An Answer for Bill February 1, 2011 : 11:43 AM

Last week on his show Bill O’Reilly asked, “Why has southern New York turned into the tundra?” and then said he had a call into me. I appreciate the question.

As it turns out, the scientific community has been addressing this particular question for some time now and they say that increased heavy snowfalls are completely consistent with what they have been predicting as a consequence of man-made global warming:

“In fact, scientists have been warning for at least two decades that global warming could make snowstorms more severe. Snow has two simple ingredients: cold and moisture. Warmer air collects moisture like a sponge until it hits a patch of cold air. When temperatures dip below freezing, a lot of moisture creates a lot of snow.”

“A rise in global temperature can create all sorts of havoc, ranging from hotter dry spells to colder winters, along with increasingly violent storms, flooding, forest fires and loss of endangered species.”

Listen to the logic here. Global temperature rising will cause more snow fall, and colder winters. Well Al, I hope that you realize that more and more people are starting to use their common sense! Absurd comments like this are loosing there grips on peoples minds, and they are starting to see you for what you are!

A greedy money and control hungry elitist! As you moan and cry about polar bears dieing off (when in reality their population is exploding), from your 50 room mansion, that sucks back the natural resources. All while you tell the general population that we need a carbon tax to save earth. That will be payed to a company that he runs.

Oh uh I guess you can call me a global warming denier now, or whatever they are calling people that use common sense these days.

On that note, I will leave you with a great film to watch on this topic.
The Great Global Warming Swindle.

Hamilton's City Council Not Interested In Giving People The Freedom Of Choice?

One week ago I sent the mayor and all the city councilors an email in regards to the addition of hexafluorosilicic acid (fluoride) to the cities drinking water.

Here is the email that was sent:

Hello, my name is Terry Wilson.
I am a new resident of Hamilton, and my family has lived here for over ten years. I am writing you today because of something that I find quite disturbing.
The city of Hamilton is promoting that tap water is the clear choice, and that it is completely safe. But the city is still adding what is commonly known as fluoride
to the public water supply. What most people do not realize is that the "fluoride" that is being added to our water is really called hexafluorosilicic acid.
hexafluorosilicic acid is literally classified as a toxic waste, that is produced from the phosphate fertilizer industry. It is not a naturally occurring substance like your water reports state.

There is a very wide range of side effects that occurring from ingesting this substance. Just recently the 23rd scientific study linking fluoride exposure to lowered IQ in children. Among other professionals citing that there is now more evidence linking fluoride exposure to cancer, than there ever was with DDT. You can look at all of the scientific studies here: http://www.fluoridealert.org/health/

Water fluoridation is the only medical treatment in Canadian history, that has been implemented on a large scale, without the informed consent of the patients. To my
knowledge there has never been a public vote on the issue in Hamilton. In cities across Canada, who have never voted on it and now have. Barrie, Kitchener/Waterloo, and now Calgary (on the verge of a vote) have all now held votes, and the people voted it out.

The time for a vote on the issue of water fluoridation in Hamilton is long over due! I hope that you will support this, and the people of Hamilton will not have to enact the Ontario fluoridation act, to force a referendum.

No politician or bureaucrat in city hall or in Ottawa have the right to tell us what will or will not go into our bodies.

Thank you, and I will look forward to your response.
Terry Wilson

The first response that I received from city councilor Brad Clarke. Brad is himself against fluoride, and agreed to add a poll to his blog about the addition of it to our water supply. In the one day that his poll was posted, 85% percent of the voters checked off a box that said to completely remove all fluoride compounds from the water supply in Hamilton. If that was an election, it would have won in a "landslide" victory.

That one totally threw me off, but then I got the second response.

Hi Terry,

Thank you for your message regarding Fluoride in the water. This topic has been brought up in Council Meetings. As things come to light with respect to changes in the way tap water is being treated, the Council will make a public announcement.

I acknowlege your concerns, and will be recording your message.

The Mayor aprreciates hearing from residents on the many matters relating to City business.

Deanna Levy
Communications/Community Relations Administrator
Office of Mayor Bob Bratina

And the third was a short conversation with councilor Lloyd Ferguson.

Our Medical Officer of Health has advised us it is the right thing to do. I am not a medical professional and therefore rely on her advise.

I totally understand that! I am not a medical professional either. But when there is so many medical professionals, who oppose the practice, I think that it is in the best interests for the people of this great city to be given the chance to decide if they want it or not. I guess my real question is, would you support a public vote on the issue?

We had a long debate with public input two years ago and decided to stay with Fluoride. I know a number of medical doctors and dentist in Ancaster and all of them say Fluoride is the right thing to do.
Sorry I could not be more helpful.

The other twelve councilors have not replied at all.

This is very disturbing, but not new in the fight against fluoride. Although most of the population does not even know that it is being added to the water, or what it even is. And those who do know, (for the most part) all agree that we deserve a choice. Our elected officials do not seem to be interested in giving the people the
right to informed consent, or freedom of choice. They avoid the question like it is the plague, and when forced into the corner they will throw it of on to the head medical officer of health. Who of coarse fully supports it.

That is one doctor, out of the thousands in this country. Regardless if it is one doctor saying so, or every doctor in Canada saying the same thing. You still have the right to informed consent to any medical treatment!

The Canadian Awareness Network will not stop this battle until everyone in this great city gets that freedom to informed consent. These emails are only the start of what will probably be a long and hard fought battle!

Dr. Paul Connett Special: What Fluoride Really Does To Your Body

Infowars special featuring Dr. Paul Connett, on January 27 2011.

"Alex talks with Dr. Paul Connett, a full and tenured professor of chemistry at St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York, where he has taught for 15 years. He obtained his undergraduate degree in natural sciences from Cambridge University and his Ph.D. in chemistry from Dartmouth College in the US. For the past 14 years he has researched waste management issues with a special emphasis on the dangers posed by incineration and the safer and more sustainable non-burn alternatives. Dr. Connett has researched fluoride over the last few years and has produced Fluoride: A Statement of Concern. Alex also covers the latest news and takes your calls."

Could Food Shortages Come To Canada In 2011?

While we all watch the civil unrest in Egypt, Tunisia, Lebanon, and Yemen unfold. The one thing that is connected in all of these countries is the fact that all of them faced food shortages, and sky rocketing food prices.

Can that happen in Canada in 2011?
Yes it can! We are are already being warned that food prices will sharply rise this year, due to gas and energy prices rising. Which has already caused the inflation rate to hit 2.4% in December 2010.

Recently in Berlin Germany Agriculture ministers from Europe, Africa and Canada met and warned of the dangers of inflation and food shortages.

"Aziz Akhenouch ( Moroccan) denounced the "rocketing prices" which threaten purchasing power as well as political stability in his country, which is a major wheat importer and saw prices double last year."

In that week long meeting, the only options tabled as a solution, was more GM crops and more trade agreements. And we have all seen how well both of those work out!

Add the fact that Canadian production is now lagging behind the Americans (among many other countries), source and this looks like it could become a real problem very soon.

The Canadian government seems to be doing very little to prevent this from happening, and personally I will not wait for them to come up with a solution. Even if they do, it will not have our best interests in mind!

We need to band together in our communities, and create our own protection barrier against a food shortage. Building community Gardens, and networking are going to be vital! Our government and the international community can try to scare people into whatever regulations they want. But if we have networks of communities that can sustain themselves, none of it will work! And the people will get by just fine.

Unmanned Military Plane Now Patrolling Canada - U.S. Border

If hearing about the North American Security Perimeter lately, has not been enough for you. Now we get this news.

The Predator aircraft's have seen combat over Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bosnia, Serbia, Iraq, and Yemen. Add Canada and the U.S. to that list now. All in the guise of combating the drug trade. Let me restate that. The unmanned military aircraft will now be patrolling the the Canadian - U.S. border, to fight the war against drugs! That is said to move in large amounts, frequently across the border. Just a little bit of overkill don't ya think?

In reality this seems to stem from what has been said about the North American Security Perimeter.

"The New Border Vision is being billed as a 21st century border management system that will include new common consumer product regulations, a pre-clearance agreement for goods crossing the border to expedite waiting times and the use of advanced technology to utilize biometric data for travelers at airports and land crossings, according to people familiar with the plan."

Utilization of new technologies, and new common consumer product regulations (cough cough* Bill C-36 the consumer product safety act).

Using the drone planes that are equipped with high tech camera's that can see threw walls of houses/buildings and vehicles, would definitely cut down border wait times. Because the border agents would know which cars to stop and which ones not too, before they even reach the border. But what does that say for our rights?

According to this article, "Officials with U.S. Customs and Border Protection say the aircraft can transmit live, streaming video and radar images from above the huge swaths of rugged — and remote — terrain"

At first this is where they will be used. But as many of us already know, that is only the start. The push towards the North American Union is getting faster, with everyday that passes! We all have to unite and stand against this coming police state, and protect our sovereignty right now! Or all will be lost.

Better Go And Get Your Vaccine!!

On the front page of the Hamilton Spectator January 18 2011. There is a picture of a needle and a bottle of medication, with the ever scary caption " Flu has hit really hard, really early".

I always give the link to any related articles that I am speaking about. But unfortunately this story is not posted on the Hamilton Spectator website.

The front page article says:
"Medical officials warn this years flu has the province in a nasty grip at a time when the number of Ontarians who received the seasonal vaccine is at an all time low.
"It's happening really hard, really early" said ministry of health spokesperson David Jensen, noting there are more than 1,800 lab confirmed cases across Ontario, about eight times higher than the average for this stage in the season. "That's why we're trying to get the word out for people to get their shots."

It goes on to say that there is four hundred confirmed cases and three deaths linked to influenza so far in Hamilton. But there are hundreds more that likely have not been lab tested. Are you scared yet? Ready to take your family to the flu clinic yet?

This article is nothing more than a pure scare tactic! Big Pharma is not happy that most Canadians have become aware of the high risks behind the flu shot and they are not making as much money. There is not one word about boosting your immune system with the food you eat, Vitamin D or C, or any other method of flu prevention, other than the shots!

Or how the influenza and most other vaccines are ineffective and dangerous. To left is a chart showing a sharp decrease in mortality rates from influenza in America, long before the vaccination programs were rolled out.

There is a great article
explaining these facts here:

The best way to protect yourself against influenza, is by living a proper lifestyle! Eating raw organic foods, making sure you get a good intake of vitamins (vitamin D and C especially), and being active. Not blindly listening to propaganda and injecting synthetics into your body.

Vaccines have been a big money maker for big pharma companies, for a very long time now, and they refuse to accept the fact that people in large numbers have caught on to their scam. In the coming months expect the propaganda machine to be in high gear, when it comes to vaccinations!

Big Pharma Loves You!

There is so many examples of big pharma showing how much they love people, it is hard to know where to start! Between unsafe drugs, unsafe vaccines, lobbying to have harsh laws/regulations on their competition (the ever dangerous Natural Health Foods), and on and on. If you were to sit down and write a list of all the ways that big pharma companies love and care about us all, you would end up with a large stack of paper by the time you were done!

There is one example of their love that not too many people talk about, or know about. In Canada there has been people who become addicted to illegal drugs, for a very long time now. A large number of those people eventually at least try to become clean (at least once). To do so, they turn to the methadone clinics. Pharmacuetical companies produce the methadone, to help people who are suffering threw addiction.

In the brains of addicted people, methadone prevents heroin or morphine from interacting with receptors for natural painkillers called endorphins , blocking the effects of the addictive drugs and reducing the physical cravings.

The methadone usually costs about five to ten dollars a day in Canada. My research conduted in Brantford Ontario, shows that about 3,000 people visit the methadone clinic a day.
When you do the math, the pharmaceutical companies are making anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000 a day from just this one small clinic. WOW showing love, can be very profitable don't you think?

Over half of the 3,000 visitors a day to the small clinic in Brantford, are there because big pharma and their doctors loved them so much, that when these everyday people. Who most of, had no history of drug abuse, got injured. They where given drugs like Oxycontin (a narcotic pain reliever). Even after they're injury had healed and a doctor will no longer prescribe these medications to you. Do not worry! They can be purchased online without a prescription. But if you decide that you no longer wish to take the pain reliever, big pharma is right there with another drug for you! Now if that is not love, I don't know what is!

With all of this love and profits that are being made from both drugs, I do not know how things could get any better! Pharmaceutical companies profiting as they help you with your pain, and then when they help you get off of those painkillers. You get to suffer oops, I mean enjoy this whole process that could take years instead of weeks/months.

These are great times we live in aren't they?

World Wide Bans On Natural Health Products

In Canada we are witnessing the total raping of our health freedoms. We now have the consumer product safety act (Bill C-36) as a law. Which does not effect Natural Health Products itself, but it opens the door to allow the Canadian government to adopt foreign laws and foreign trading block's regulations on basically all products (including NHP's), without parliamentary scrutiny.

Health Canada is using unrealistic licensing standards on NHP's. For example, parsley in capsule form was not given it’s NPN because the manufacturer could not provide safety studies. Parsley is a herb that has been used for thousands of years. Think about it! When was the last time your heard of someone dieing from parsley (fresh or in a capsule)? Over 20,000 NHP's since 2004 have been not been licensed, because of absurdity like this!

But at the same time Health Canada is loosening the regulations on pharmaceuticals.

Here is a clip from a recent article I read from the Ottawa Citizen.

"What kind of "modernizations" should we expect to emerge from Health Canada's artfully stage-managed "technical consultations"? First and perhaps most important could be a shift of the burden of proof. The "precautionary principle" would be scrapped if drug companies had their way. So, instead of the drug industry having to prove that its products are (comparatively) safe before they can be licensed, new products would be presumed to be safe unless critics can prove that they are more harmful than beneficial."

That's right you do not get to choose what you put into your body Canadians! NHP manufactures must prove that herbs that have been in use for hundreds if not thousands of years are safe. But big pharma companies do not have to prove the safety of their synthetic products. Oh no a critic must prove that they are not safe, AFTER they have been given out to who knows how many Canadian people.

This is only the tip of a very large iceberg in Canada. But it is not only happening here.

In America Bill S510 (HR 2751) has passed. All of the provisions, restrictions and requirements of this law, would apply to small farmers and small food producers (think farmer’s market, fruit, veggies, jam, pie, nuts, eggs, and yes herbs). Simply cutting off the herb production of the country.

Many of you have probably heard about the European Union Banning many Chinese and Indian Herbs. The AHN has been standing up against this mandate. Here is what they have to say about it:

"The date—ironically April Fool’s Day 2011—represents one day after the end of the transition phase of the EU Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products Directive (THMPD). The THMPD exists as a sub-Directive of the Human Medicinal Products Directive, and was originally intended to be a fast-track licensing system for a wide variety of traditional herbal products, including those of non-European origin. These include the super-traditions of Ayurveda, associated with the Indian subcontinent and that of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Both are of more than 4,000 years standing. The directive was originally implemented in 2004, but the lengthy 7-year transition period has lulled many into thinking that the April 2011 date marks the implementation of a new directive. This is not the case."

"What are the facts about THMPD?

* 31st March 2011 marks the end of the 7-year transition phase of the THMPD
* The directive requires that the same type of pharmaceutical standards applied to conventional, synthetic drugs are applied to complex, polyherbal products
* A range of eligibility and technical problems, along with prohibitive costs, have, so far, prevented any products from either the Chinese or Indian traditions from successfully being registered under the scheme"


This shows that in Canada, America, and in the European Union the attack on NHP's is kicking into gear. Not by flat out banning them. Because it is well known that, an action like that would not be tolerated by the people. So the tactic seems to be the slow and methodical elimination of these products, through licensing regulations.

Testing and proving the safety of NHP's apparently can cost upwards of US $100,000.
For small to medium sized manufacturers this is devastating! But to the large companies it is tolerable. Unfortunately the large companies seem to be the ones complying with big pharma. By using genetically modified ingredients, and other synthetics produced in the pharmaceutical industry.

The small guys in our communities are being "licensed" out of business, because they refuse to comply. They refuse to keel over in the presence of big pharma.

They have looked out for us, and our health for a long time now. It is time that we return the favor! We now need to not comply right along with them! DO NOT buy from the major NHP companies. Instead look for the smaller, and more local products.

It is estimated that over 10,000 Canadians die every year from pharmaceuticals. Do you think the number of deaths caused by NHP's comes anywhere even close to that?

We are the gears of this machine, and we decide when it stops!

CHFA: Voice Of The NHP Industry Or Controlled Opposition?

The Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA), Canada’s largest national trade association dedicated to the natural health industry.

The association represents manufacturers, retailers, wholesalers, distributors, growers and importers of natural and organic products, including foods, vitamin and mineral supplements, herbal products, homeopathics, sports nutrition products, fibres and health and beauty aids.

With a membership of over 1,000+ business owners and operators, CHFA represents an industry that contributes $3.5 billion to the Canadian economy.

The CHFA is the official voice of the natural health industry from the grassroots to the Hill. We work to make certain the industry is heard when legislation is being drafted. We also provide our members with great networking opportunities, like our annual trade shows.

The CHFA also plays a key role in Nutri-Net Canada.
A collaborative initiative among industry and trade associations, institutions and provincial government organizations, aims to promote the development of a knowledge-based, value-added industry dedicated to improving the nutrition, health and well-being of Canadians.
Led by the Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA), Nutri-Net Canada will oversee and coordinate a series of studies and conferences in 2007/2008 as an input to the development of national functional food/natural health product (FFNHP) sector strategy. The strategy will define the scope of the industry, outline short and long term goals and how to achieve them, increase the participation of the traditional food industry, and increase the participation of the health community.

All of which sounds great! Until you do a little digging. The Canadian government has been vigorously attacking the NHP market place. Between proposing (and passing) draconian laws and licensing procedures. Right down to Health Canada and the RCMP conducting armed raids on the homes of naturopathic doctors. Like in the case of Dr. Eldon Dahl, whose home was raided over things like folic acid, in 2009. So one would assume that a group like the CHFA would not be in Health Canada's good books.

But that is not the case. The Canadian government is funding the CHFA and the Nutri-Net Canada program. In 2007 a press release was released from the government titled: CANADA’S NEW GOVERNMENT INVESTS $721,000 IN NATURAL HEALTH PRODUCTS

And from estimates this funding has now reached over 2 million dollars.

The CHFA and the Nutri-Net program are being used to to encourage and facilitate regulatory compliance of Bill C-51 (which eventually became Bill C-36 and became the law known as the consumer product safety act).

They are also trying to "slow Bleed" the NHP industry with the new licensing programs that Health Canada aims to implement in 2011. The original start date was set to be March 1 2011. A number of PAC members felt that the end of the Compliance and Enforcement promotion period should be June 1, 2011, for manufacturers, importers, packagers and labellers (vs. the previous March 1, 2011 date)and December 1, 2011 for retailers and distributors (vs. the previous September 1, 2011 date).

The CHFA does not support these dates. The CHFA suggestes that August 1, 2011 for manufacturers, importers, packagers and labellers and February 1, 2012 for retailers and distributors would be more appropriate. Rather than opposing these actions from the Canadian government, they only want to spread it out. But why?

Would that extended time frame give the CHFA and the large players in the NHP industry the appropriate amount of time to wipe out the small and medium players who cannot afford the onerous cost of compliance ? Perhaps the smaller companies will not compromise their ethics and/ or add synthetic and GMO inferior fillers to standardize their products to get their NPNs?. If Natural health products really are so dangerous and need such stringent specifications, and outrageous standards of evidence, can someone please show me the dead bodies?

Here is a great quote from www.biomedcentral.com

"On the other hand, some representatives from large companies
are disappointed with the time frames provided by
the NHPD but for different reasons than representatives
from SMEs. Large firm employees are frustrated that the
implementation stage is moving slowly:
the faster the weaker players get out of the business, the
better, from a commercial side or predatory side ... there's
only going to be 3 or 4 big players that are going to survive.
We intend on being one of them. So I'm saying if
you're going to cause that, then do it faster. Quit slow
bleeding us."

This is not surprising after you look at the other companies involved with the Nutri-Net program. A large percentage of the directors and board members of the organizations come from either Bio-Tech companies, or Pharmaceutical Companies.

That's right! Funded by the government and in a large part being run by Bio-tech and pharmaceutical companies.

Voice of the NHP Industry or voice of the government within the NHP industry? You decide.

We should all support initiatives like the Charter Of Health Freedom
With that passed as a law this whole mess of bureaucracy and red tape over your health freedoms will be alleviated!

The Canadian Air Transport Security Authority humiliates An 82 Year Old Woman

Elizabeth Strecker of Abbotsford British Columbia did what many Canadians do around the Holiday season, she did some traveling to spend time with her family.

On January 4th 2011 she was at the Calgary airport for her return flight back to Abbotsford. The airport security asked her to go threw the full body scanner and she complied. But there was a problem.

Elizabeth Strecker is a cancer survivor and wears a prosthetic breast. Which showed up on the scan. A security guard then asked her to raise her arms (something that she cannot comfortably do with her left arm since the surgery). According to Strecker: "The arm is full of fluid. I don't know why but it doesn't drain and is very painful." But security did not want to listen to that and insisted that she raise her arms.

She then used her right arm to lift the left one. But it was so painful that I cried, she said. With many people around it was quite an humiliating experience.

Are we all so full of fear that this kind of practice has become acceptable? Not only to put and 82 year old cancer survivor threw an unsafe full body scanner, but to humiliate her and put her threw pain!

What has happened to common sense? Why would any airport security she this woman as a threat? Why are we just blindly following the patterns of the TSA in America? The TSA scans and does it's enhanced pat downs on everyone. Seniors, children, and everyday people.

Is this all really worth it? Is it keeping us Canadians safer or is it just humiliating and demoralizing everyday Canadians?

In B.C. Expect The Government To Be Knocking At Your Door If You Grow Your Own Vegetables!

Len Gratto and Stacy Gowanlock of Mission, British Columbia have both been slapped with $5,200 inspection fees after having having their homes inspected by government officials.

This is not only happening in Mission B.C., This inspection process is also happening in Surrey , Richmond, Coquitlam, Langley, Langley City, Abbotsford, Pitt Meadows, Chilliwack and Port Coquitlam. Between 2005 and 2009 these cities conducted 3,528 inspections.

Under the safety inspection programs, inspectors armed with B.C. Hydro statistics on abnormal energy consumption can enter private homes without warrant. Sounds kinda familiar doesn't it? (Bill C-36).

"The safety inspections came about as a result of concerns over grow-ops that pose electrical hazards from faulty wiring and the overloading of residential electrical circuits." Globe and Mail

Once again a bypass around section 8 of the Canadian Charter Of Rights And Freedoms (Everyone has the right to be secure against unreasonable search or seizure.).

Oh but don't worry, it is all just to keep you safe! A fire could happen if there is faulty wiring. That is all the government is concerned about.

In the case of Len Gratto, the officials hit the jackpot! He was guilty of growing cucumbers in his basement. And with Stacy Gowanlock, they just missed it! Only finding some dirt residue and some piping leading to the chimney. What criminals these Canadians are! How dare they grow their own food! The audacity of some people eh.

The fight against marijuana has hit an all new low with this. Government officials being given the power to enter and inspect the homes of Canadians without a warrant, with police waiting at the front door. All because it may not be cucumbers, it could be the evil marijuana.

And then even if the officials do not find anything illegal, they slap you with a huge fee for making them search your home.

After the G20, and Bill C-36 trampling all over our rights as Canadians, this is just another way our government wanted to show that they love us, and only want to keep us safe! Forget about your rights and freedoms Canadians, just trust the government!

They will keep you safe, and keep all of those bad people who like to grow their own food in check! We need our police state!

You Are What You Eat!

Twenty percent of Canadians will personally experience a mental illness during their lifetime. Although most mental illnesses begin during adolescence and young adulthood, people of all ages, cultures, educational and income levels experience mental illnesses.

Mental illnesses take many forms, including:

mood disorders, such as depression and bipolar disorder, which affect how one feels,
schizophrenia, which affects how one perceives the world,
anxiety disorders which affect how fearful one perceives places, events or situations to be;
personality disorders, which affect how one sees oneself in relation to others; and
eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia, which influence how one feels about food and one's body image.

Our chemical rich modern diet with large amounts of processed and packaged foods, saturated fats, artificial colors, flavors and preservatives and an excess of caffeine and alcohol radically changes our internal ecosystem. Considering then that ‘we are what we eat’ it is little wonder that the incidences of depression and mental illness are so widespread in our culture.

Many research studies are now concluding that eating processed foods and manufactured foods, can be related to the onset of depression. In Paul Zane Pilzer's book The Wellness Revolution he states: “It's the food supply that is causing depression and obesity in this country. It's all the refined ingredients that have their nutrition stripped away.” By eating de-natured foods we are not giving our brain the nutrients it needs to achieve a healthy and balanced mental state.

Why is it that people who pursue healthy diets tend to have a positive outlook and outstanding mental health? It's the foods...because the food we eat greatly affects our mental state, and if we eat healing foods, and foods rich in vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients, then we will have healthy mental function.

Hamilton Ontario's Bill C-36 Rally

On Saturday January the 8th 2011, the Canadian Awareness Network, Grasshopper Media, and We Are Change Brantford converged on Gore Park in downtown Hamilton.

Armed with fliers, DVD's, a megaphone, and the charterofhealthfreedom.org petition (available for download HERE)

We started out with the megaphone with speeches by Terry Wilson and Frank Gotz, and quickly got a great response. People began to come over and get information. We gave out countless DVD's, fliers, and spoke with many concerned Canadians who had never heard of the consumer product safety act, or Bill C-36.

Coupled with a rally by We Are Change Calgary, and a great clip on CHCH news by eart4all.net on Friday, we are getting the word out there!

CHCH news cip.

And this is just the beginning! With the NHPPA getting ready to start a campaign against this illegal law, we have no intentions of giving up. We are going to fight this thing right until the end! Once the Canadian people become aware of what this so called law is, the quicker we can have it repealed. It is a daunting task, but the future of our nation depends on it!

Video clips from the Hamilton Rally:
Part 1

Part 2

Keep watching for more street actions, and if you want to get involved please contact us at canadianawareness@live.ca

We the people of this great nation, are the only ones who can fix it! It is time to stop watching from the sidelines and take action.

Top 10 Ways To Naturally Dotxify Your Body

In this age that we live in, our bodies are exposed to hundreds if not thousands of toxins everyday. They come from the water and food that we consume, the beauty products we wear, all the way down to the air that we breathe.

It is extremely important to know how to remove them. You do not need to go out and buy expensive detox kits, or take any kind of medications to do so. You can detox your body naturally, with very little extra cost.

The health benefits of doing a detox are endless! Even though there are a lot of medical "professionals" who will tell you otherwise. Here is a small list of what detoxing can do for you:

* Purify liver, kidney and blood
* Eliminate years of built up internal waste
* Increase energy and focus
* Lose weight
* Ease chronic pain
* Look younger
* Boost immune system
* Cure high blood pressure
* Get rid of acne
* Simply feel fantastic

Ill start off with the method that I use (it is not included in the top 10 because it is one of the hardest ways, on your mind and body).

I start by taking kelp and activated charcoal supplements one week before (two of each everyday). At the end of that week, I do a water fast for 48 hours. Then break the water fast with a ginger, lemon, kale, and celery juice. I continue with vegetable juices for a three day juice fast. Using as large of a vegetable variety as possible. To break the juice fast I start to eat small amounts of vegetables, and then ease in some fruits and nuts. It is essential to have pure water, and 100% organic foods to do this.

This is the hardest method in my opinion because it really takes a toll on your body. You will feel like you have been hit by a truck! Your nose will constantly run, you will get severe headaches, feel very fatigued, and even feel some depression. But within days after finishing you will see a total reversal. You with feel clear, focused, and overall great!

That kind of an intense cleanse is recommended once a year. It is not an everyday thing.

Here is our top 10 ways to detoxify without having to go threw an intense program:

10. Eat plenty of fiber, including brown rice and organically-grown fresh fruits and vegetables. Beets, radishes, artichokes, cabbage, broccoli, spirulina, chlorella, and seaweed are excellent detoxifying foods.

9. Cleanse and protect the liver by taking herbs such as dandelion root, burdock and milk thistle, and drinking green tea.

8. Take vitamin C, which helps the body produce glutathione, a liver compound that drives away toxins.

7. Drink at least eight glasses of clean water everyday.

6. Breathe deeply to allow oxygen to circulate more completely through your system.

5. Transform stress by emphasizing positive emotions.

4. Practice hydrotherapy by taking a very hot shower for five minutes, allowing the water to run on your back. Follow with cold water for 30 seconds. Do this three times, and then get into bed for 30 minutes.

3. Sweat in a sauna so your body can eliminate wastes through perspiration.

2. Dry-brush your skin to remove toxins through your pores. Special brushes are available at natural products stores.

1. Exercise is the number one method to detox your system! Yoga, jogging, stair climbing, or any other cardio exercise works well.

These are all options that can be incorporated into your everyday life, with health benefits that are endless. You will not get sick as much ( helping to eliminate any of the so called need for dangerous vaccines), and you will have less of a chance of developing diseases like diabetes.

But even beyond that, you will feel amazing! Whenever I have spoke to a person who has done a detox, they cannot believe how great they feel! And swear by it!

Give it a shot people. What do you have to loose? Even if you do not enjoy the experience, you will not of lost anything. You will have only gained knowledge.

Video From The January 8 2011 Mass g20 Demonstration

We Canadians will never forget the weekend of June 26th and 27th 2010. It is "A weekend that will be remembered as a weekend of infamy" For Canada. We all need to stand in solidarity and fight against the tyranny's that this government seems to be content with, pushing on to the people of this great land.

We stand with our brothers and sisters in Toronto!

Video info:
The police and governments of Toronto, Ontario and Canada, have now proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that they THINK they can literally round up hundreds of citizens, gathered together to exercise their Charter rights to protest, for no legal or discernible reason-AND THAT WE THE PEOPLE OF TORONTO, ONTARIANS AND CANADIANS WILL SIMPLY STAND IDLY BY. The suspension of civil liberties-the snatching and grabbing of citizens off the streets, and throwing them in a cage, in many instances without access to legal counsel and in a few cases after being threatened or physically harmed by the police services. The arrested citizen then has to bear the cost of trying to defend themselves. If the police acted illegally where is the accountability? The citizens of this city again have to bear the cost of trying to prove that, and the public pays the damages-not one single person in government or the police agencies has been held accountable. So in fact, the police are totally and utterly unaccountable. The bureaucrats who made the decision to round up peaceful protesters, or just people walking down the street, are unaccountable. The politicians are also unaccountable, as apparently they have veto power over investigating themselves and apparently don't even have the guts to conduct any kind of investigation, instead some semblance of an investigation has to be conducted by the Ombudsman. Who the hell is accountable? So WE THE PEOPLE if the police can illegally detain Canadians without any kind of accountability or oversight, how is this in any functional way for the citizen, any different from a police state? Arbitrary arrests and detentions on the basis of secret laws that nobody knew about, with no accountability. That is the very definition of a POLICE STATE. WE THE PEOPLE are still absolutely appalled by what we saw on that weekend and shaken to the core by the hundreds of examples of police brutality that we witnessed and experienced and utterly disgusted by the silence and sheep like acquiescence from the people who are supposed to be representing all of us in Toronto and Ottawa.

Stephen Harper: Corporate tax cuts needed

While in Welland on Friday Mr. Harper was still pushing forward with the corporate tax cuts for all his buddies in the private sector.


"We are gaining more revenue from the business sector by having low rates than we were by having high rates," Harper said. "This is in the interest of everybody and it's the direction we'll continue to go."

He also added that the latest job numbers that show full-time employment rose in Canada by 38,000 in December were "encouraging." But he again warned the global recovery is still fragile and "significant challenges" remain.


Am I the only one to see that full time employment numbers rose in December because it was the holiday season? Most companies hire on almost double the staff, just to let them go, come January and February. It is called seasonal help.

Or how about the fact that in December of almost every year previous to the the corporate tax cuts and the "economic downturn", The full time job statistics were around double the 38,000.

Rewarding the corporations with tax cuts is not effective, nor is it working! The only thing that it is doing is making it harder for the little guys to compete. Clearing the market place for the mega corporations.

Take a look at this governments economic policies. Slam the average people with more taxes (H.S.T. , eco tax, and so on) and rewarding the big corporations with tax breaks. Sounds just great for the average Canadian does it not?

That CBC news article does not even touch on the fact that Mr. Harper dodged everyone who came out to see him. Some of the workers who have been locked out by U.S. steel in Hamilton, were there to speak to him. Some concerned Canadians wanted to let him know what they thought about the consumer product safety act, and he even dodged the children who were there to see him.

Here is the video titled: Stephen Harper makes children cry in Welland

So Mr. Harper wants to reward the big corporations, and not even let the Canadian people who are being effected by all these polices (not just the tax cuts) see him, never mind get a chance to speak to him.

Oh and Mr. Harper the Canadian people do not care about your "global recovery" We care about fixing Canada, and making it a country for and by the people. Not for and by the corporations!

Bee Pollen, Cinnamon, And Many Other NHP'S No Longer Being Sold In Canada

Health Canada is continuing to block natural health products from hitting Canadian shelves. In there most recent move a major NHP manufacturer has been forced to discontinue 53 safe, popular NHPs. Including Bee Pollen, Zinc, GABA, Resveratrol, Grapeseed extract, cinnamon, boron, Gaba, B12, and boswellia.

When the regulations started in 2004, Health Canada classified NHPs as “DRUGS”. This meant that there were now two classes of drugs: synthetic pharmaceuticals, which are patentable, and NHPs, (vitamins, minerals, herbs, probiotics, etc.)

Within three years, this requirement had eliminated well over 20,000 imported American products from Canada, because their makers couldn’t justify the cost or hassle.

American made NHP's that are safe and very effective are slowly being blocked from the small Canadian market. Health Canada is accomplishing this by setting very high and costly testing standards, that these companies cannot afford to provide. In return for the small return. And bet your bottom dollar that Health Canada knew this would be the case!

It is a calm and collected way for Codex Alimentarius to be phased into Canada.

According to the Herb Regulation In Canada, under section C. The UN Codex Alimentarius Commission

* The UN Codex Alimentarius Commission aims to harmonize international food standards to protect consumers against health hazards and fraud; to ensure safe practices in the food trade; and to facilitate international trade in food and food products.

* In 1997, the Codex Commission’s Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses reviewed concerns over potentially harmful herbs and botanical products sold as foods. It stated that the toxicity of herbs is essentially a safety problem with no nutritional implications and recommended that national authorities establish lists of potentially harmful plants on a toxicological basis.

* As one of its 151 member countries, Canada is free to adopt or reject the standards, guidelines and recommendations the Commission develops. The herbal community is concerned that Canada will yield to international trade pressure but Health Canada stresses that the World Trade Organization does not have the authority to require countries to adopt and enforce a Codex finding.

According to this Canada is free to adopt these standards or not to, but unfortunately Health Canada seems hell bent on imposing these draconian measures, on top of the other draconian measures like the consumer product safety act. To keep Canadians safe from products that have been in the market place for decades, without one known death caused by any of them. But you know things like Bee Pollen and Grapeseed extract are so dangerous, they just can't take that chance!

It is very clear that health Canada is fully on board with codex, and is being backed by the big pharma corporations that want the Canadian people unable to naturally defend themselves. Big pharma/health Canada wants all of you fully dependent on their ineffective and dangerous pharmaceuticals!

George Soros Given A Canadian Globalist Of The Year Award

"TORONTO - Global market fundamentalism and U.S. attempts at international cooperation have failed and given rise to a new world order, one dominated by China, says George Soros, the billionaire philanthropist whose forays into politics have made more headlines lately than his massive hedge fund profits." Source

As a main player in the economic downfall of 2009 (also one of the few people to make a lot of money from it), it is not surprising that Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty, and Research In Motion co-CEO Jim Balsillie awarded Soro's with the CIC Globalist of the Year award on November 15 2010, in Toronto.

CIC (Canadian International Council) is just one of a vast network of Canadian think tanks that focus on globalization. We have written about the CIGI globalism school in Kitchener/Waterloo, that is run by Jim Balsillie. We have also seen what kind of a job Mark Carney and Jim Flaherty have done. In there time in office, the Canadian economy and marketplace has taken a nose dive, and there is still no end in sight.

So as hard working Canadians are loosing their jobs, everything is OK. Because the banking elite of this country are focusing on giving out awards for globalist of the year! Who need to focus on fixing our economy, and preserving our national sovereignty when we can give out awards to elite criminals!

Soro's joins some great company with the likes of WTO Director-General Pascal Lamy, who was the 2009 globalism award winner.
