This is very important. Legislation was passed in 2007 and is in effect and waiting to be proclaimed. More Importantly, this is part of the job Infrastructure promised us by #justintrudeau ....the creation of a new college to create professions for a whole new mental health industry. Including social workers. ALL licenced, trained and funded by big pharma which is in bed with Health Canada.
The sole purpose of the new legislation is to eliminate all unregulated practitioners from the healthcare field as well as all non pharmeceutical regulated practitioners through regulated, diluted and forced new scopes of practice.
All definitions and case law exist that will allow for prosecution by the college of any and all practitioners who treat others in ontario but who are not health care professionals noted in the legislation.
Authorized professionals are physchiatrists and medical doctors, physiologists, registered phsycotherapists, nurses, occupational therapists and social workers.
A lawyer in Belleville ontario is representing the cause you see on facebook and around the internet. Please , if we allow this law and education to take effect, we will then let big pharma win.....in my view...we are now living in a German concentration camp where our thoughts and behaviour are controlled by the thoughts and education of the professional involved. Kind of like room 101 in the book 1984.
Matter of fact this new school and legislation reeks of doublespeak.
Please read the remainder of the legal opinion here.
This is not just for therapists but for patients.....this affects your constitutional rights as a citizen of canada to receive the health care of your choice, and that includes not taking medications for depression or anxiety if that is your choice. This law will now limit those choices and make it illegal for a naturopath to treat you...... please act for freedom of choice and especially in health.....
Virtually any client, or recipient of assistance, could be classified as having a serious disorder, at any time, at the SOLE discretion of the College, and therefore any practitioner could be accused of having treated one or more clients who have a ‘serious disorder’.
Ontario case law has defined this term very broadly, and the psychiatrists’ ‘Bible’, the DSM-5, lists hundreds of ‘serious disorders’. Psychiatrists can use the unscientific DSM-5 to come up with at least one diagnosis for virtually everyone on the planet. Therefore, a prosecutor could easily find an expert witness willing to state that any client had a “diagnosable serious disorder“.
Again, virtually any client or recipient of assistance can be classified as being seriously impaired at the SOLE discretion of the College. Click here to learndetails on how the term has been defined in Ontario case law.
Also, please note the word ‘may’ in front of this term. To fulfill the criteria of the controlled act, the client’s ‘serious disorder’ does not have to ‘seriously impair’ anything – it is only required that it ‘may’ do so, and this will be determined at the SOLE discretion of the unaccountable regulatory College that has been given the power to prosecute competing practitioners.
any technique used to treat human issues may be considered ‘psychotherapy’, and any healing relationship is a ‘therapeutic relationship’;
virtually any person could be deemed to have a ‘serious disorder that may seriously impair’;
natural methods treat the whole person; therefore there is no way that any holistic, energy, traditional or spiritual care practitioner can be safe from prosecution under this law.
Ta.ke action ...send a letter to your mpp as a therapist and as a citizen. 2016 is the year to band together and support this cause....legal action is needed......now.

Another lawyer in British Columbia, Shawn Buckley, is fighting health canada and it's elimination of natural health and naturopathic health medicines from being deregulated in canada. Health canada wants them proven safe, whereas big pharma is allowed deaths from medications regularly and gets approved.
See my post here for more ....it's all part of the same cause.....freedom of health
