Shawn Buckley has been busy drafting a new Private Members Bill to repeal sections 500-504 of Bill C-47.
A critical part of this Private Member’s Bill is to ensure that any penalties or orders that activated while the therapeutic product provisions applied to natural health products are undone.
In other words, we have drafted this Bill to continue our work to make certain that no NHP manufacturer, retailer, or practitioner can be persecuted for telling the truth about NHPs and subjected to $5,000,000 per day fines.

“We are amending the decision-making process during states of public health emergencies to ensure that elected, accountable, transparent and represented officials are making decisions during such events,” said Alberta Justice Minister and Attorney General Mickey Amery in a Thursday speech in the Legislative Assembly of Alberta.

These subtle red flags can be confused with other health issues. Here’s what to know so you can protect yourself and others.
During the first few weeks of being infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), most people — roughly two-thirds — experience a mix of flu-like symptoms that indicate their body is reacting to the virus. After being exposed to the virus, your immune system jumps into action to get control of the infection and clear it from your body.
This early phase of infection, known as acute retroviral syndrome or acute HIV infection, can be so mild that certain individuals may not even notice they’re sick. People often mistake the symptoms, such as a fever or headache, for the flu, mononucleosis or tonsillitis.
In most cases, these early signs only last a week or two. “It basically feels like a flu reaction since the initial HIV viral load is very high,” said Dr. Monica Gandhi, an infectious disease specialist at the University of California, San Francisco.
Experts share the beliefs about the virus that are not only wrong but dangerous, too.
Many factors ― including scare tactics in school, agenda-pushing politics and misrepresentations in popular culture ― have created a massive stigma around HIV and AIDS. This impacts everything we think we know about the condition, from who we believe can contract HIV, what an HIV infection looks like and how the virus spreads.
Experts say that incorrect stereotypes about HIV have led to underdiagnosis and undertreatment for many folks who are either afraid to get tested, don’t think they need prevention or don’t think they can get the virus.
John Campbell, Ph.D. this week explained what’s known so far about the surge in pneumonia affecting children in China, and why it likely isn’t a new pandemic but possibly may indicate the presence of an antibiotic-resistant bacterial infection.
Reports of a “mystery wave of pneumonia” circulating among children in China have some people wondering if there’s a new pandemic afoot, internet lecturer John Campbell, Ph.D. said in a recent YouTube video.
“The short answer appears to be no,” said Campbell, a former emergency room nurse and teacher. However, a survey of the available information indicates there are “some strange things that are happening that don’t quite make sense.”
Campbell cited questions regarding what is causing the respiratory infections surge and whether the symptoms are typical.
