C-51 is on the Order Paper for today, June 17th, scheduled for renewed debate http://www2.parl.gc.ca/HousePublications/Publication.aspx?Pub=projected&Language=E&Mode=1&Parl=39&Ses=2

Your ongoing efforts are needed for a huge SURGE to "persuade" the Conservatives to stop C-51 from passing second reading and to cancel C-52 and the Drug Sub Class Natural Health Product regulations immediately. (See WHAT TO DO- Below.)

THINGS ARE HEATING UP AS THE CONSERVATIVES                                                                            & BIG PHARMA GET DESPERATE!

The National Post published an article yesterday in an attempt to smear Truehope and the Strauss Herb Company which are (naturally) being accused of being "quack companies" desperate to kill C-51 http://www.nationalpost.com/news/canada/story.html?id=590205

The article asserts (falsely) that Truehope is attempting to "hide" their affiliation with www.stopc51.com but that is patently absurd and totally exposes the National Posts pro Pharma bias. If you go to http://www.healthcanadaexposed.com/c51/contact.asp  right there Truehope clearly identifies themselves as having built the site by giving this email address: support@truehope.com  along with their tollfree number. The National Post would have readers believe that the national campaign against C-51 is being pushed by "fake grass roots" or "astroturf" when nothing could be further from the truth, but this is how they're trying to spin it.

Additionally, this entire section of the Stopc51 site details Health Canada's witch hunt against Truehope's product Empower Plus which has helped thousands of people with bipolar illness http://www.healthcanadaexposed.com/pages/default_hce.asp  This page provides details about how Truehope beat Health Canada in court and about how Health Canada murdered several of their customers by driving them to suicide.

I am disgusted with the National Post a newspaper. Not only do they engage in these lies about Truehope, but they also quote Terry Polevoy, (the widely discredited pimple doctor from Ontario) who fancies himself to be the heir to also widely discredited so called "quackbuster" Dr.Stephen Barrett in the USA. (The two work closely together as "attack dogs" on behalf of big pharma, engaging in numerous frivolous lawsuits against alternative practitioners and the natural products industry on both sides of the border. I urge you to write a letter to the editor to complain http://www.nationalpost.com/contact/letters.html?name=Letters&Subject=Letter+to+the+Editor... You'll find plenty of juicy (albeit totally true) dirt on Polevoy and Barrett at http://www.quackpotwatch.org/opinionpieces/stalkerpolevoy.htm where Tim Bolen rakes them and all the other so called quackbusters over the coals. I am going to call Tim in a minute to ask his help in sounding this alarm.

WHAT TO DO: Contact your MP via http://www2.parl.gc.ca/Parlinfo/Lists/Members.aspx?Parliament=0d5d5236-70f0-4a7e-8c96-68f985128af9&Current=True 

Tell them you oppose C-51 which is scheduled for debate today and that you want it killed. Tell them the bill threatens to give Health Canada Police State Powers which they would use against the Natural Products Industry. Request that they watch these videos of MP James Lunney discussing his concerns about the bill: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=James+Lunney%2CC-51&search_type=&aq=f 

Let them know that we are tracking all MPs on this issue via this database http://www.healthcanadaexposed.com/c51WhatMPsSaid/index.html and that any who vote the wrong way on it will be driven from office. Let them know we will be handing this issue on a silver platter to their competitor prior to the next election if they mess with us because Health Canada has killed entirely too many Natural Health Products consumers already and we're not going to take it anymore.

Call everyone you know and urge them to take immediate action!! Forward this alert after removing the unsub link at the bottom!

Donations to IAHF assist us in bringing you this timely information. If C-51 isn't killed in Canada, its draconian measures will come south to the USA via FDA's Trilateral Cooperation Charter.
