Dear Sir / Madam,
I MAY REPEAD SOME INFORMATION IN MY CHAPTERS, BUT THESE ARE SOME OF
INDEPENDENT LETTERS / COMMUNICATIONS WITH GOVERNAMENT AGENCIES.
I am suffering a great deal with life threatening medical conditions not
able to afford groceries, needed medications nor to pay any of my financial
*The extraordinarily lucrative pharmaceutical industry has long been driven
more by profit, power and policy then pills or concern to Health and Safety.
There is much moral posturing in an industry that is only too well aware,
that it capitalizes on a captive market of the desperate and the afflicted.
*It is important to differentiate in between an accident and a crime
(criminal, methodical negligence). Torpharm/Apotex got engaged in
intentional malicious conduct violating all statutes with a reckless
They deliberately acted with knowledge of a high degree of probability of
serious harm to me and reckless indifference to the consequences of that
It acted in the face of a perceived risk that its actions will violate all
We are faced with unethical corporation that engaged in illegal production
of prohibited products, violated all rules of the corporate system and in
the process sacrificed health of own employees.
We did have on daily bases incidents/accidents and substantial product
In manufacturing area we were encapsulating / compressing very many products
on daily bases (spontaneously /parallel).
On each piece of equipment/system we were running different product.
On regular bases particular machine was changed over to different product/
format in the same day.
Maintenance Technicians were not limited (as stated by Company's witness) to
service only "outside of machines", but for most of cases inside of machines
and in particular in process compartments where tooling was installed and
On/in all cases of any equipment failure or problem with quality of the
product (hardness, thickness, contamination etc.) was followed with direct
and prolonged Technician's unprotected exposure.
On regular bases Technician had to spend hours at the time running and
tuning machines to the proper speck due to fact that hired Operators did not
have any prior pharmaceutical/mechanical experience and could not correct
the problems (even minor ) on their own. On regular bases Operators did run
away if the failure /spill occurred.
Due to introduction of dangerous products all employees in Quality Dept, all
in Sanitation Dept, all in Manufacturing Dept., all in Maintenance Dept and
so on left the Company and Company was not able to recruit qualified
candidates. This situation created total collapse of compliance with any and
all of GMP, SOP and Safety regulations.
To great extend, absence of qualified /responsible Personnel, Company's big
financial problems (expansion, Legal liabilities, pending processing of
approvals of new products) exhausted/collapsed Company's financial fluidity
and prevented Company from supply of base items (toilet paper, gloves, eye
protection, protective uniforms, masks, you name it, etc.). We did have
cases, when Operators urinated in to the floor drains in process Rooms
during production runs etc...:)
Because of total chaos in all areas and non compliance, Company instated in
positions (key positions like management, safety etc.) individuals not
qualified /not willing to voice any constructive opinions.
As result of Torpharm/Apotex's negligence (exposure to advanced structural
composite materials /chemicals used in the manufacturing processes which
have been classified as to have a co- carcinogenic and/or synergistic
effect) I AM DISABLE. For many years Company melted and boiled / processed
chemicals in hundred of pounds at the time in order to challenge existing
/valid Patents of Brand Name's by process ( Cyclosporin- Cyclosporine is a
potent immunosuppressant used originally to prevent the rejection of
transplanted kidneys, continues to be recommended for a variety of organ
transplants - Company did not have ISOLATION areas nor any other compliance
to process it so in order to keep processing it , Company apparently managed
to changed its CLASSIFICATION and Personnel walked in it as in the sand on
the shore beach with out any protection, brain function controlling drugs
(psychiatric), antidepressants and narcotics which I worked with: PAXIL,
Lavitra, Plavix, Bupropion, Gabapentin, Gemfibrosil, Metformin, Omeprazole,
Temazepam/Etodolac, Metroprolol , Norvasc, Depakote and other brain function
controlling drugs and antidepressants, narcotics blood composition and
pressure controlling drugs etc.).
Those processes were conducted in /on not approved equipment and in
manufacturing area not approved for such operations.
Also I got massive and unprotected exposure to unidentified product (s ) in
/ during out of control accident (we did have many accidents) when one of
not approved new products proved to be volatile and during process exploded
causing inferno, burning/baking for period of time while releasing toxic
fumes and causing collateral damage to equipment and infrastructure. For
many days Company did not procide with any clean up or secureing of
contaminated area due to Ministry of Labor apparent investigation.
BEYOND ANY DOUBT I WAS EXPOSED TO THE DANGEROUS SUBSTANCES WITH OUT ANY
PROTECTION AND THAT THEY CAUSED THE ADVERSE EFFECTS AND INJURIES I NOW
As result of Company's negligence (exposure to advanced structural composite
materials /chemicals used in the manufacturing processes which have been
classified as to have a co- carcinogenic and/or synergistic effect I am
suffering skin discoloration, sinuses and respiratory ailments (fluid in
upper lungs). I am suffering from severe hypertension (which at the present
is out of control - BP 235/135) and due to it as well as chemicals effect
my hearth was damaged, migraine headaches, joints and back pains, nervous
system effects (state of mental turmoil, compromised motor skills,
compromised speech mechanism, memory elapses etc.), vision problems
(constant presence of a black spots in eyes which may indicate minor stroke
effect/hemorrhage or Depakote's side effects etc.) my heir turned white
under psychiatric drugs, kidney pain and changes, enhanced risk of cancer,
and fear of cancer.
I experience a feeling of general discomfort and sickness; weakness, trouble
breathing, unusual drowsiness, dizziness or light-headedness; unusual /
unexplained stomach upsets, the sudden development of a slow or irregular
I have serious concerns about the safety of the levels of exposure. My worry
is that a toxic build up of the drugs and/or its metabolites can be fatal.
Some of the side effects I experience include infections, nausea, dry
mouth, constipation, decreased appetite, sleepiness, dizziness, sexual side
effects, nervousness, tremor, yawning, sweating, abnormal vision, weakness,
insomnia, including electric shock sensations, abnormal dreams, agitation,
anxiety, nausea, mood fluctuations, headache, fatigue, sleep disturbances,
skin rash, anorexia, leg pain , joint pain , muscle pain, pain in arms and
legs, abdominal cramps, body chronic pain, medication taste, sore throat,
also effects include vomiting, rash, flu-like symptoms.
I am suffering a great deal with life threatening medical conditions not
able to afford groceries, needed medications nor to pay any of my financial
dues. I am not able to perform any chores around my residence, forced to
relay on assistance. I was "swimming in" / a massive exposure with out any
protection to a potent immunosuppressant, brain function controlling drugs
(psychiatric), antidepressants and narcotics which overwhelmed my system.
Toxic build up of the drugs and/or its metabolites can be fatal.
I AM ON MULTIPLE MEDICATIONS BEING AFRAID OF UNCERTAIN TOMMOROW.
The evidence proves that alleged facts were true.
Company, with its mandate to bring relief / help to people suffering from
many medical conditions did make me disable ( work related medical
conditions) limiting my professional and personal life, making challenging
my social life, destroyed my marriage, imposed extreme hardship on my family
and relatives/friends, indirectly killed two of my elderly parents (since
they learned about my situation they suddenly died few weeks a part - I was
sole provider) and in vicious / malicious manner on on going bases is
preventing me from enjoying my Constitutional Right to be able to provide
Some Doctors are vigorously complaining about my non compliance in
treatment, but they failed to acknowledge , that despite my cautioning
about my saturation with chemicals and need on their behalf to be very
selective with prescribing any treatments , they treated me with array of
drugs for a illusionary condition which I did not have . I underwent number
of tests (amongst in Nuclear Physics Lab) which conformed that I do not have
AT THE TIME, WHEN DOCTORS BECOMED PADDLERS FOR PHARMACEUTICAL
Many Doctor's statements are ridiculing and consciously ignoring fact ,
that my medical conditions are directly related to prolonged and
unprotected exposure to drugs at work ( 6.5 years). Despite my repeated
attempts to focus Doctors attention on the real source of my problems, most
Doctors refused to talk about work connection with my conditions.
It was clinically proven, that such potent and unpredictable in effect drugs
like Bupropion, Tramadol Hydrochloride (Serious potential consequences of
over dosage with tramadol hydrochloride tablets are central nervous system
depression, respiratory depression and death), Cyclosporine (a potent
immunosuppressant), PAXIL (crystalline paroxetine hydrochloride hemihydrate)
and many more in fact do cost all medical conditions I do suffer right now.
The human nervous system is particularly vulnerable to toxic-chemical
insults. Many chemicals can permanently disrupt nervous system function.
Do cause emergence of anxiety, agitation, panic attacks, insomnia,
irritability, hostility, aggressiveness, impulsivity, akathisia (psychomotor
restlessness), hypomania, mania, and other unusual changes in behavior,
worsening of depression, and suicidal ideation, especially early during
antidepressant treatment and when the dose is adjusted up or down. Families
and caregivers of patients should be advised to look for the emergence of
such symptoms on a day-to-day basis, since changes may be abrupt. Symptoms
such as these may be associated with an increased risk for suicidal thinking
and behavior. There has been a long-standing concern, that antidepressants
may have a role in inducing worsening of depression and the emergence of
suicidality in certain patients during the early phases of treatment.
Withdrawal can often be more dangerous than continuing on a medication. It
is important to withdraw extremely slowly from these drugs, usually over a
period of a year or more, under the supervision of a qualified specialist.
Antidepressants have been recognized as potential inducers of mania and
psychosis. Is reported that over 200,000 people a year enter a hospital with
antidepressant-associated mania and/or psychosis.
Adverse reactions are most likely to occur when starting or discontinuing
the drug, increasing or lowering the dose or when switching from one SSRI to
another. Adverse reactions are often diagnosed as bipolar disorder when the
symptoms may be entirely iatrogenic (treatment induced). Withdrawal,
especially abrupt withdrawal, from any of these medications can cause severe
neuropsychiatric and physical symptoms (which do have bearing on
cardiovascular system and many more). I was addicted to many of those drugs
and abruptly withdrawn by Company. FDA published a Public Health Advisory
that reiterates several of these side effects and states (in part)
"Anxiety, agitation, panic attacks, insomnia, irritability, hostility,
impulsivity, akathisia (severe restlessness), hypomania, and mania have been
reported in adult and pediatric patients being treated with antidepressants
for major depressive disorder as well as for other indications, both
psychiatric and non-psychiatric." PAXIL interacts with other Inhibitors.
Paroxetine will elevate plasma levels of thioridazine etc.
Use of / exposure to antipsychotic drugs and IV drug abuse of MPTP which
inhibits the function of mitochondria within the nerve cells of the brain,
Environmental toxins may play a role in Parkinson's disease. Exposure to
psychiatric / antidepressants drugs may potentially cause symptoms of
Adverse reactions to psychiatric / antidepressant medications (treatment
induced) are often diagnosed as bipolar disorder when the symptoms may be
entirely iatrogenic (treatment induced).
Antidepressant induced violence / suicide at work is documented.
In my case many Doctors are taking advantage of a sick and impaired
individual, not able to effectively / aggressively defend himself in
articulated manner due to medical condition (compromised speech mechanism
and other neurological problems).
Many Doctors are DESPERATELY TRYING TO ATTRIBUTE MY COMPLEX WORK RELATED
MEDICAL CONDITIONS TO ANY AND ALL MEDICAL CONDITIONS IN MY ENTIRE LIFE IN
ORDER TO GET AN EXCUSE TO UNDERMINE MY CLAIM.
Apotex falsified all records provided by them to WSiB and engaged its
employees in criminal conspiracy (documented),which untimely further
deteriorates my state of health.
Many individuals involved in my Case purposely are omitting very critical
evidence and medical conditions (or are reducing it in to insignificance).
Please focus on 7 years of my unprotected work with toxic / controlled
substances/narcotics , which are known to cause my conditions even in
dosages regularly prescribed by Doctors and much more/worse if over dosed.
Please start to question harmful molecules which Company processed not
reviling nature /name of them and keeping in confidentiality Work Orders
and Safety Data Sheets as well not providing any protection for employees.
Apotex did knowingly and willfully make a materially false, fictitious and
fraudulent statements and representation in a matter within the jurisdiction
of the Ontario Labor Board, WSiB (Workers Compensation Insurance Board),
Ontario Human Rights Commission, Ontario Health Act, Ontario Labor Law as
well obstructed Canadian Constitution etc.
Apotex committed many counts of perverting the course of justice or
intending to pervert the course of justice, many counts of perjury, criminal
conspiracy, criminal negligence, criminal recruitment of false witnesses,
attempted murder, did cause permanent disability, irreparable damage.
Company terrorized by many means any one / other employees voicing concerns
about issues with Safety and quality of the products.
*-Company's conduct was planned and deliberate,
- Company's intend and motive was clear,
- The defendant persisted in the outrageous conduct over a lengthily period
- The defendant attempted to conceal and cover up its conduct,
- Defendant was aware that what it was doing was wrong,
- The defendant profited from its misconduct,
- Defendant knew that violation was deeply personal to me (the plaintiff),
- Company understood my financial vulnerability,
No Justice System is allowing a Criminal to fabricate an alibi/evidence.
Due to such approach by WSiB and some other Agencies, TorPharm/Apotex so
boldly breaks the Law and flourishes on their path of crime.
Overlooking their activities is like being an accessory to the crimes and
this is against Public's best interest.

DAYS OF EXCLUSIVITY IN ORDER TO SECURE MAXIMAL PROFIT.
Why present problems with Aporex (non compliance, contamination,
investigation etc.) are not on the news.
COVER UP? General Public kept oblivious about crimes being committed against
it by Apotex.
