Capilano Honey – a serious health issue and attempted cover up by punishing whistleblowers

ben-mckee-ceo-capilano-honeyCapilano Honey and their CEO Ben McKee instituted frivolous and vexatious defamation proceedings against whistleblower and consumer activist Simon Mulvany in February 2016 because he wrote about the health and safety dangers of Capilano Honey.

Shane Dowling, Kangaroo Courts Australia blog editor, published his findings that also attracted the defamation brigade from Capilano Honey. Their court gag orders and removal of his blog pages exposing the Capilano companies’ disregard for an alleged health issue with their product.

Shane’s latest publication of Capilano’s litigation has stalled. Amazing is that CEO Ben McKee directly contacted Simon Mulvany instead of his lawyers while their defamation litigation was still before the court. He asked:

“How would you feel if there was a product recall of Australian honey in the next few months because it is a possibility “

This email Shane Dowling sent to Capilano Honey remains unanswered.

Dear Mr McKee and Capilano Honey

I would like you to answer the following Interrogatories:

Is the imported irradiated pollen from China that is fed to Australian bees that make honey sold to Capilano adequately tested when it enters the country?
Will the origin of the pollen come up in testing facilities?
Has any Manuka honey tested shown traces of country of origin other than NZ or Australia when tested?
Does overseas ingredients in Australian honey effect Australia’s credibility as an exporter?
What have you done about the widespread use of illegally obtained antibiotics on bees in the Australian industry? If you have done nothing, then why have you done nothing?
Are beekeepers showing vet certificates to Capilano when they are treating their bees with antibiotics.
Has Capilano Honey or anyone been testing Capilano Honey for the weed killer/herbicide Glyphosate (Roundup)?

Can you please respond to the above questions ASAP as I may have follow-up questions.


Shane Dowling

About Managing Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. I have never bought Capilano products as they have been shown to be not truthful in relation to the production of their Honey products. I am a big honey user and have a lot of knowledge in relation to honey production and its uses.
