Why do we love slavery?

If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as a sorry state as the souls who live under tyranny.

Shawn Buckley is a constitutional lawyer who lives in Kamloops, BC and runs Natural Health Products Protection Association (nhppa.org). The organization’s goal is to “protect access to natural health products and dietary supplements.” Here is Shawn Buckley’s talk, Occupy Your Body. The lecture is about how government is systematically taking away your personal rights to choose what you put in your body. Shawn Buckley also talks more about his experiences with raw milk enforcement across Canada.

Updated February 21, 2012: Here is the Ontario Court of Justice Judgement by Justice P.D. Tetley on September 28, 2011. Section [96] states: “The entitlement to consume milk, raw or otherwise, is not a Charter protected right. Accordingly, the Respondent bears the obligation of establishing that the restrictions on raw milk consumption and the prohibition of its sale and distribution is ?grossly disproportionate? to the legislative objective inherent in the applicable provisions of the Milk Act and the H.P.P.A. This assessment involves consideration of the extent of the alleged Charter infringement, if any, and its significance when contrasted with the interest, or objective, the legislative initiative was enacted to address.”
