You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars, you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. -anonymous note found in Old Saint Paul church dated 1692

A proposed Canadian legislation, Bill C-51 plans to remove 70% of natural health products (vitamins, herbs, traditional medicines) from Canadians with many others available by prescription only.
The Bill aims to restrict research and development of safe natural alternatives in favour of high risk drugs along with creating a kind of "Health Police" to enforce these proposed laws. Canadians could be punished with severe fines (up to $5 million), jail time of up to two years, seizure of property and seizure of bank accounts for simply speaking about or giving a natural product without the approval of government. The new law goes so far as to warrant action against a person who would give another person an "unapproved" amount of garlic on the recommendation that it would improve that person's health.
