Creative Bube Tube | Health Canada Approves Natural Product, Insect Defend Patch

As the mosquito season approaches, many people search for effective insect protection which remains free from the harmful chemicals found in most insect defence products. This is the first spring where they can be assured by Health Canada's full approval of the natural solution Insect Defend Patch (IDP) and the Natural Health Product number which it was issued on November 27th, 2012.

IDP has generated momentum for this product for over 5 years with the help of top advertising agency Creative Bube Tube, and this approval is a landmark event in the history of insect defence. The Insect Defend Patch, now also known as NPN #80037826 is the only Health Canada approved Natural Health Product proven to help reduce mosquito bites.

As one of the most stringent health organizations in the world, Health Canada's full approval gives the public assurance that using Insect Defend Patch has a positive effect in safely reducing mosquito bites. While pending this status, IDP had a temporary exemption number, and after a full review of their field test results and safety protocols, Health Canada put their stamp of approval on the natural insect defence product.

Approximately 1.3 million patches were sold within Canada in 2012 and with this approval the company looks forward to a promising distribution future, providing the public with a safe and natural mosquito defence product. Insect Defend Patch would like to extend a special thanks to all their retailers who supported them by carrying the patch while they were awaiting Health Canada's full approval.

Insect Defend Patch would also like to thank their partners and associates for their vision and support in helping them get to this level. These partners include, Creative Bube Tube (who created their special effects and animated television commercials), AKM Services International, For the Ages, Impact Sales and Marketing, World Famous Distribution, Best Pak, DSA Consulting, ARTURUS Testing, KGK Synergize, Marketech, Italo Labignan and Canadian Sport Fishing, Ronnie Whittick and last but not least, the CBC's Dragons' Den where Brett Wilson and Jim Treliving offered them the biggest deal ever in the show's history.

Most importantly the principals at Insect Defend Patch would like to thank their customers. The fact that they kept supporting the product and buying the patch because it works, says it all!

KINSELLA: Why Mulcair will never be Canada's PM


The precise moment at which Thomas Mulcair became unfit to be prime minister of Canada is hard to pin down.

It arguably came in 2005, when his party adopted what has become known as the Sherbrooke Declaration -- in which the federal New Democrats accept that is possible to break up the country with 50% plus a single, solitary vote. When the NDP's own constitution requires two-thirds to be amended.

It may have come in late 2012, when the NDP leader refused to defend the flying of the Canadian flag at ceremonies at Quebec's National Assembly. Instead, Mulcair sent out one of his crypto-separatist MPs, who snapped that the banning of the Maple Leaf was Quebec's "own business." Or, it may have happened earlier this year, when Mulcair approved a move to rescind the Clarity Act, the 2000 legislation that governs the rules surrounding secession of a province. The federal NDP want to clear up unity "fairy tales," he said at the time.

Most likely, however, Mulcair ceased to be a contender for prime minister sometime in April, when a book was published in Quebec suggesting the judges of the Supreme Court of Canada actually conspired against Quebec's then-separatist government. In the book,La bataille de Londres, Quebec journalist Frederic Bastien claims Chief Justice Bora Laskin passed secrets to the Canadian and British governments on discussions between high court justices about the legality of constitutional repatriation. Bastien also accuses former Justice Willard Estey of slipping confidential information to the British government in 1980. Never mind that an unprecedented Supreme Court investigation found no evidence whatsoever to validate Bastien's claims.

Forget that Laskin and Estey were not merely two great jurists -- they were two of the greatest Canadians to have ever lived, and that they are not here to defend their good names. Never mind any of that. No, note this: When Bastien's corrosive conspiracy theories were trotted out, Mulcair giddily seized on them, and demanded an inquiry. And, when he got one, he dismissed the results, because they favoured Canada.

Said Mulcair recently: "It's a clear indication that the Supreme Court had no intention all along of ever dealing with this issue seriously."

Take another look at those words. Those are the words of a man who aspires to be prime minister -- smearing the highest court in the land, suggesting that it is lawless. That it is engaged in cover-up. As I said at an Ottawa conference this week -- as one of Mulcair's most ardent defenders angrily sat beside me -- those comments are beyond the pale. They are disgusting and despicable. And they disqualify Thomas Mulcair to be prime minister.

Why did Mulcair pursue such a reckless course? Why did he so irresponsibly seek to reopen old wounds and divide Canadians?

Because he knows he will never be prime minister. Because he knows that his current post, leader of the opposition, is the best he can ever hope for. Because he is always prepared to cut a deal with the separatists to advance his career, and to hell with Canada.

There's been a pattern in Mulcair's public life. At those points where history is watching, at those moments where he has been called upon to choose Canada or Quebec, he chooses the latter. At every juncture where he could have promoted Canada, Mulcair declined. He put his partisan interest ahead of the national interest.

At a certain point in a politician's career, a picture reveals itself. Mulcair's portrait is one that depicts an angry, bitter old man, one who is literally prepared to put the country at risk to curry favour with separatists. Mulcair is a disgrace. He isn't fit to be a dogcatcher, let alone prime minister of Canada.
