Gag Order Hearings - Drs. Chopra and Haydon

On Tuesday June 20 beginning at 9:30 am, the Federal Court of Canada will
be holding hearings on the gag orders imposed on Health Canada scientists
Dr. Shiv Chopra and Dr. Margaret Haydon.

The hearings will be held at the Royal Bank Building, 90 Sparks Street,
11th floor, Room 1104. The hearings begin 9:30 am on June 20 and may
continue Wed June 21.

Health Canada imposed gag orders on Dr. Chopra and Dr. Haydon, preventing
them from speaking publicly about their concerns that the health of
Canadians is being risked due to the approval of drugs of questionable

These drugs include hormones and antibiotics that are administered to food
producing animals.  Some of these drugs have been banned in Europe because
they are linked to cancer. Yet they have been approved in the Canadian food

Those who can, please attend the meetings and lend your support to Health
Canada scientists whose efforts to protect public health have put them at
odds with the pressure at Health Canada to race products to market.
