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

Those caught with unauthorized vitamin C are subject to a $5,000,000 criminal fine and up to two years in prison. The heart of the issue is not only taking away one's right for self-preservation, but relinquishing one's physical well-being to government."

    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.

    That is what I have been trying to say lol. I AM CANADIAN to slogan myself haha. My buddy owns a nutrition store too and I am sure he would have mentioned it...

    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.

    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

  12. 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!?

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

  14. This is the most ridiculous sh*t I've ever heard. It has to be a joke...

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

  16. 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?

  17. 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.

  18. Crock of sh!t:
    "Published May 26, 2009".

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

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

  20. 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.

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

  22. 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.

  23. 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

  24. 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.

  25. Nice. Now you can pick up Heroin and Oranges from your drug dealer What about sneaking an orange prison style.....

  26. 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

    I give a f**K!!

    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.

  31. 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
