Haunting the Princess of Pink since 20/07/11...
Hmmm...Earlier this month, figure skater Patrick Chan, a world silver-medal winner and one of Canada's top hopes for an Olympic gold at Vancouver in 2010, went to Dr. Galea for treatment of a tear in his left calf muscle. It was the day before the office was raided. There is no evidence to connect the raid with any of the client treatments.
The good doc may or may not have violated Canadian laws in terms of obtaining and using homeopathic medications not sold in Canada, but at the moment it strikes me as being about as significant as when the LA County Department of Public Health raided all of the chinese restaurants who were preparing Peking Duck the traditional way.
And they went through the proper channels to get the treatment approved before it was done to Patrick, so all is good there.
I want some of that for my left calf muscle tear!
I do agree that the whole Department would be very likely slavering at the first sight of the dripping ducks in the Chinese restaurants.

I think that's a no-no in terms of bacterial growth....
