Peter Helgason of the Natural Health Products Protection Association is quoted as saying, “What problem are they trying to fix” with Bill C-51? The problem is that the natural food and supplement industry is cutting into the profits of Big Pharma. Who's pushing Bill C-51? Certainly not the public.
The real purpose of Bill C-51 is to bring Canada into compliance with Codex Alimentarius. Codex is a United Nations initiative to globally “harmonize” standards and regulations with regard to food and supplements. The little-known North American Security and Prosperity Partnership is also about “harmonizing” standards between Canada, the U.S. and Mexico.
Bill C-51 has nothing to do with concerns for our health and everything to do with making us ever more dependent on Big Pharma for our health needs. It is an assault on our freedom to choose alternatives.
