The battle that Truehope started way back in 2003 has had what we would consider to be a happy ending. The Federal government defended itself by presenting evidence that convinced the court that what Tony Stephan, David Hardy and their entourage tried to do was actually wrong. Their lawyer Shawn Buckley presented the usual case with submissions from Dr. Bonnie Kaplan and the rest of their supporters. But, in the end they failed to impress the judge with their arguments. We don't know what the legal costs have added up to, but they must be significant. Shawn Buckley has filed an appeal.
Links to the actual court case:
The case was won because Health Canada's lawyer proved to the judge that Truehope had violated the Foods and Drug Act when they advertised and imported unapproved products to be sold by them in Canada.
E.M.Power has not received a DIN or NOC for any of the indications for which it is being sold and advertised and is not properly labelled. Consequently, the false, misleading, and deceptive selling/advertising of this unapproved and improperly labelled drug product is in violation of sections 9(1), 9(2), C.01.003, C.01.004.01, and C.01.005.
