Truehope loses court battle with Health Canada

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:

  • TrueHope Nutritional Support Limited v. Canada (Attorney General), 2010 FC 63 (CanLII) - .html
  • TrueHope Nutritional Support Limited v. Canada (Attorney General), 2010 FC 63 (CanLII) - .pdf
  • Court index and docket - recorded entries from May 2003 to January 2010
    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. The website solicits participation in a clinical trial research and seeks to attract parents of children with mental illness with statements such as “finding true hope in despair”. The product is being promoted for the study and treatment of serious disorders such as anxiety and panic disorder, bipolar affective disorder, fibromyalgia, schizophrenia, attention deficit hyperactive disorder, clinical depression, Tourett’s Syndrome, etc. which are not amenable to self diagnosis or self-monitoring.


    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.

    No mention has been made on the Truehope web site and don't expect Shawn Buckley or his NHPPA to admit a defeat of this magnitude.

    I also expect that the folks at "It's Everyone's Business" won't mentioned it either.

    They interfered with my constitutional right to buy vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and herbs. Good on them for fighting Health Canada for being ********. The only thing that HC achieved was proving to all of us that they are ********. The only thing you are proving (and if you read the comments of news articles that quote you, everyone is getting the message) is that you are an *******. The louder you speak, the more you serve the cause. It's hilarious.
