Percy Schmeiser – A TRUE Canadian Hero


In May of 2004, the Supreme Court of Canada, in a 5-4 vote, ruled that Percy Schmeiser, a canola farmer in Saskatchewn, violated Monsanto Canada’s patent on its “novel” invention of genetically modified – ‘Roundup Ready’- canola seeds.

Mr. Schmeiser vehmently contended that the GMO patented seed had somehow, blown onto his propery. Monsanto disputed the claim and insisted the Canadian Farmer had ‘reaped and reused’ the GMO seed without authorization or compensation to Monsanto.  Read more on the ruling here.

Over on Monsanto.com , these thugs claim that ‘Percy Schmeiser is not a here – rather, he’s a patent infringer who knows how to tell a good story.”  Regardless of what Monsanto writes on their web-site about OUR Canadian Hero, Mr. Schmeiser is old school and opposed to genetically modifying nature. To that end, why on earth would this farmer intentionally plant GE seeds.  At the end of the day, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that Mr. Schmeiser was not unjustly enriched, rather, his profits for the year in question “were precisely what they would have been had he planted and harvested ordinary canola”. As a result, the Saskatchewan farmer did not have to pay any damages to Monsanto for patent infringement.

Prior to the 2015 overhaul of the legislation implementing stiff regulations regarding genetically modified (GE or GMO) foods, Monsanto managed to introduce GE food under a new category entitled “novel foods” and provided governments with scientific consensus that GE foods pose no greater risk to human health than conventional foods.

In Canada, Health Canada fired Shiv Chopra and Margarety Haydon in 2004 for insubordination when the two repeatedly went public over their concerns about the safty in the controversial Bovine Growth Hormone. The two were being pressured to approve the ‘Recombinant Bovine Somatotropin (rBST)’ growth hormone to boost the pruduction of milk in dairy cattle.

Most recently and a dozen years after these whistleblowers were fired by Health Canada, a tribunal has ordered reinstatement – see the update here.

Science Direct asserts that the research into recombinant DNA technology, has provided unparalleld advancements in the agricultural and pharmaceutical industries, producing more food and therapies for the world’s population.  The question that never gets answered is this: What are the perils of GE foods?  NCBI, another scientific site, has this to say about GM foods. Scientific studies seem to back this controversial subject.

With the regulation of medical and recreational cannabis in the near future, is it a surprise to learn that Monsanto has hooked up with GW Pharmaceuticals in the UK along with the largest seed accumulator – HortaPharma B.V.?







Big Pharma Interrupted

someone say weed

Big Pharma Interrupted  –  their profits are threatened by whole plant based cannabis medicine. The pharmaceutical industry is against legalizing the plant on the basis that it fails to protect the safety of children.  If that concern had a miniscule of truth to it, the industry would NOT prescribe their harmful psychotropic drugs to children.

The largest pharmaceutical market in the world is the U.S. – representing 35% of the global market.  Those states that have adopted a medical cannabis policy are witnessing a significant drop in prescription drugs including those for pain and for symptoms associated with chemotherapy – two very lucrative money making conditions for Big Pharma).

The pharmaceutical industry is the largest industry raking in massive amounts in revenues at the expense of people suffering from acute health challenges to life threatening diseases.  In fact, the Washington Post published specific results for reduced prescriptions including painkillers, anxiety, nausea, psychosis, sleep disorders and depression  in those states with a medical marijuana law.

What is the pharmaceutical industry doing about a plant that can reduce their revenues by at least $4 billion annually?  This industry is spending an obscene amount of money to discredit this plant as harmful, untested, dangerous and of no use, unless it is of pharmaceutical grade.

Just Say NO to prescription drugs!

What is an Anxiety Attack?


An anxiety attack is also referred to as a “panic attack” and can be brought on by real or imagined fear, often described as excessive fear.  An anxiety attack, can be characterized as having the following:

  • uncontrollable crying
  • shortness of breath
  • shaking
  • a rapid heartbeat
  • an overall out of control feeling of dread.

Unfortunately, it is said that these attacks are more common in women than in men. It is also important to note that these attacks are more often than not, usually related to some psychological factor. For example, psychological factors that can instigate a panic or anxiety attack includes:

  • work-related stress
  • family related stress
  • too much changes in your life all at once
  • anything that can make you feel overwhelmed is liable to trigger an attack.

In addition to psychological factors, other factors that can bring on an attack include the following:

  • stimulants such as coffee and sugar
  • any foods that you are allergic to
  • chemical food additives such as MSG, aspartame and even salt

OK, so what can we do about panic attacks in order to avoid them in the future, or at least alleviate their severity?
