It’s the people speaking.
It’s a grassroots initiative, arising from the experiences of the people who use preventive and nutritional choices to assist their health. So, it’s not about what the government wants for us, or corporations want for us, but what WE, the people, want.
It’s so good it needs defending.
It’s arisen out of the need to defend what the grassroots see as a solution. People are rising to the occasion to selflessly participate because they have something they want to protect. Their choices, and ultimately their health.
Making it easier to support.
It prevents negativity.
It stops Canadians’ focussing on what they don’t want, and don’t like and gives them the real answer of what they DO want. Every word has power.
It unites people.
It’s a concept that keeps everyone from the public, to the politicians, to the beaurocrats on the same page, and united, because it’s a place where everyone can share a common vision for the future.
It represents ‘freedom of choice’ in truth.
It’s not an empty promise, or a pre-election pledge. It’s a noble and worthy cause, in writing.
It has great roots.
It is based on positive rights our courts have procalimed we should all enjoy. It follows the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms which courts have interpreted as supporting our rights to access treatment options of our choice.
It gives prevention & wellness a legislated place in our society.
It was written by a constitutional lawyer who experienced first-hand the conflict between beaurocracy and an emerging self-care reality. Governments say that they encourage individuals to take care of themselves, and thereby reduce costs to themselves and society. Prevention, after all, makes sense in a world overridden with high costs of emergency care. But, is this lofty ideal really a toothless promise, without the support of legislation, and resulting regulation?
It supports politicians.
It gives government and beaurocrats more strength when faced with corporations who have a vested interest and who want to control and manipulate.
It’s non-partisan, or all-party.
It's a citizen's initiative where are parties are invited to support.
It’s not funded by government, but by grass roots.
It's a grassroots initiative that is supported and funded by citizens.
It’s born in Canada.
In Kamloops, to be exact. The Charter can be shared with every nation. It's truly Canadian!
It’s serving the needs of all nationalities and cultures.
It doesn’t try to fit Chinese medicine, or Ayurvedic Medicine, or Native American Medicine or any traditional medicines practiced in Canada into mainstream crisis medicine. It respects their individuality, and supports it.
It creates a Ministry of Wellness.
Like, yahoo! Isn’t this about time?!
It needs help.
Everyone’s help. It started with an idea, but it’s not something that came with automatic financial support – it will require any and all to see how important it is, and pledge to stand beside it. A small amount monthly, given by a large number of people, would be enough to achieve this. It could be as little as $5, or as much as anyone could afford. The groups forwarding the Charter must raise funds to cover travelling across the country, legal fees, meeting fees, printing of materials for educational purposes.
It's for your health- on your terms
Under the Charter everyone is deemed to be competent to be able to make personal health decisions.
This is a clear case of not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.
You can no longer assume that the liberties you currently have will remain available to you. You must speak up for them. Here is a great cause to participate in.
