    Never happened. I can't find any other news source on it either. Pretty sure its not true.

    Well I was wondering if any of the member here live in Canada and can shed some light on it. I heard somewhere, that it hasn't been enforced, but was announced.

    Well that's good news, but if something like this does happen please let us know. I've heard they have been trying to ban vitamins and minerals for a long time.

    I will. It is more along the lines of banning things that are very potent. They have always done this, which is why I order most of my stuff from down south. We do however have a very healthy culture overall that supports healthy living for the most part. Especially BC and Quebec. We have a very high food quality standard. We also have a no tolerance rule about borderline supplements..Which sucks in a lot of cases. Always ways around though

    I live near a large hippie community in British Columbia. My understanding of the situation is simply that they want to limit the size of the vitamins. No more 500mg horse pills or some such.

    Whenever alternative media gets a hold of something like bill C-51, they are going to go on a fearmongering campaign to have it stopped. just like the big boys on mainstream news.

    It was a bill (C-51) that was introduced in 2008 but was struck down.

    billc6.com/www/stopc6

    If it did pass, it would've had huge ramifications for the natural health industry in Canada. Old news, though.

    A hoax.
    As someone else said, the alternative health media are all over stuff like that.
    I am a member of some of those groups and they really get the word out.
    Even if the situation might be some obscure little improbable tidbit.

    They do it a lot of time to keep people on their toes.
    I have nothing against pharma per se, but selling me a medicine for my asthma that might cause upper respiratory problems and death associated with them is a pretty good stretch.

    Although we did approve prescribing powers for naturopaths Kinda counter-intuitive that ruffled doctors' feathers. http://www.cbc.ca/health/story/2009/...ng-rights.html

    It's a hoax. Period.

    Do a google news search and you'll find nothing. A web search has that same article coming up on a few times on various political sites. It's total BS.

    I'm surprised this is spreading, quite a retarded article, I'd laugh if I were the author, especially seeing that this is seen as true. Could you imagine the deficiency issues this would create.

    Thanks to the internet, I have seen that a woman sneaking an orange, no, a couple of oranges "prison style"... or even "baby style" is quite possible. Apples too.

    Thank you, internet.

    I gotta "Choosy moms choose JIF" PB jar in a VJ on my cell phone from a buddy....ewwwwww....

    And many a times I thought of moving to Canada to try it out for a year or two.....New Brunswick is like 2 hours away from here, so I'm sure its not too different, but would be interesting to see how the laws and gov't are different. And I'm half canadian-french, so I would fit right in

    Exactly and was reintroduced as Bill C6 which was also killed...it has some real bs attached to it..like abolition of trespass rights. To be reintroduced in the future I am sure...I don't think any Canadian would willingly accept it if they knew the full story.

    Vitamin C is in a lot of foods and beverages we consume, including multivitamins. This sounds absolutely ridiculous. Then again; Did anyone else ever hear about that one time when the Bush Administration considered banning creatine? LOL
