001. we're told by OAND in the press release
"Ontario's Naturopathic Doctors: Providing Greater Access to Primary Healthcare for Ontarians" (2015-07-01):
"on behalf of Naturopathic Doctors across Ontario, the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND) is pleased to announce that after eight years of discussions with the Ontario government, the Naturopathy Act, 2007 was proclaimed today [...]";
so now, the government of the province in a direct accomplice. 'Falsehood, unrestrained, though not much restrained anyway, by the Ontario government.'
"naturopathic medicine has been a regulated health profession in Ontario since 1925 under the Drugless Practitioners Act. With proclamation of the Naturopathy Act, 2007 Naturopathic Doctors become a self-regulated healthcare profession under the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA) [...]";
how can you be a profession if you are based on falsehood? That's been going on no matter who has been regulating. So I don't regard the 'self-regulation' as much of a change, and neither do news outlets. Obviously, without fanfare, this is OAND trying to create some kind of buzz through a press release. When all else fails, DIY.
