Marvin Ross: Why is Health Canada Still Allowing Quack Medicine to be Sold to Dangerous Psychotics?
Alternative medicine may have led to death in the case of Jordan Ramsey in Vancouver. Ramsay murdered his father, Donald Ramsay, and severely injured his mother while in a schizophrenic psychotic state. He had stopped his prescription medication at that time in favour of a vitamin product, Empowerplus ® (EMP). The real culprit, however, may actually be Health Canada, which seems to have been unable to enforce the law. According to Health Canada, Empowerplus® is still not authorized for sale in Canada because of the health claims associated with the product. Yet we need to know why it is still for sale now.

Reive Doig: B.C. Missing Women's Inquiry Budget: Who Is Prostituting Themselves Here?
Compare the budget for B.C.'s Missing Women's Inquiry (approaching $7 million) and the amounts charged by those working for the commission with what's spent by frontline charities like WISH and PACE that actually work with sex trade workers in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. Senior commission counsel Art Vertlieb billed the province $483,741 for his work on the inquiry. If you put that together with the $482,139 billed by associate counsel Karey Brooks and her law firm you could fund WISH, with its $900,000 budget, for an entire year, and still have enough left over to fund PACE for a season.
