Never heard of this before this article. I don't think it will ever happen personally. They are strict here..but that is retarded.

Subject to a $5million dollar fine for possessing Vitamin C??? C'mon, this has got to be an April Fools joke from last year or something.

As for on the News..I watch it quite a bit and never saw anything about it. I also live around a lot of hippie protesters who post stuff on the telephone poles well in advance when something like this occurs..again nothing haha.

I'm Canadian and I think the only reason I believed this for a second is because I'm hahaha! Had me worried I was like... WTF!?

Move to the United States, it's that easy....If not support the country you live in.

Just mega dose Orange Juice or did they ban that too as a biproduct of this bill?

if it is true then I think it's outrageous, high doses of vitamin c also treats polio.. Why support steroids but not a life saving vitamin?

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.

Crock of sh!t:

I bought Vitamin C a month ago, I live in Ontario.

Yeah, there's no way this would ever be true.. lol

It was a bill (C-51) that was introduced in 2008 but was struck down.
If it did pass, it would've had huge ramifications for the natural health industry in Canada. Old news, though.

PEOPLE ARE RETARDED............. YOU CAN'T BAN A VITAMIN, YOU GET IT IN TOO MANY FOODS, THAT IS JUST STUPID TO EVEN CONSIDER.

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.

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
I give a f**K!!

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
