[2008 Dec Canada] Expert urges no-fault vaccine compensation

[2008 Dec Canada] Finding fault with vaccine insurance

Vaccine injury compensation in Canada (2002)

"There is no government (vaccine damage) compensation system in Canada, and impossible to win damages in the courts in this country.  Only the province of Quebec (which often does its own thing) has a compensation plan that has turned away more than it has awarded. Only a handful of people have ever successfully gotten compensation in that province.  
    Canada seems determined to deny vaccine injuries as a fact of life.  Canada is also a convenient test ground for vaccines, and our children serve as the test population.  The five in one DTaP,Polio & Hib vaccine (known here as Pentacel) was developed and tested here for years prior to it filtering out into the larger vaccine marketplace.  
    Big Pharma loves Canada as the legal system has set an impossibly high bar, thus insuring that vaccine injury victims will not be awarded damages in the courts, which conveniently enables the government to maintain the myth that vaccine safety & injuries is a non-issue.  As well, Health Canada (our drug oversight department) is cozy/cozy with the pharmaceutical industry.  A recent book, written by a Health Canada whistle blower scientist titled "Corrupt to the Core" document this. 
    In Canada, hope of any court awards or government compensation seems an impossible dream at this point in time. Without court awards, government won't budge, and without a reform of the rules governing personal injury cases, no court will ever rule in favour of a vaccine injury victim."---Edda West VRAN (Dec 2008) [See: Lucia Morgan]
