Four amigos: MPP Randy Hillier, Sean McGivern, Michael Schmidt, and MPP Bill Murdoch just before the anniversary news conference November 18, 2008

Last Wednesday November 18th, raw milk farmer Michael Schmidt and supporters held a news conference at Queens Park Toronto to mark the second anniversary of the raid on Glencolton Farms November 21, 2006. In the days to come we’ll be presenting material from that news conference, much of which didn’t make it through the mainstream-media news filters. So stay tuned for more exciting episodes. To start the ball rolling, here’s a photo that Michael wanted, out in the hallway before the news conference got underway.

In case you’re wondering who that Randy Hillier character is, here’s his website.

And as for the others in the photo, Sean McGivern represents the Grey-Bruce Landowners Association, Michael Schmidt is a well know raw milk advocate and farmer and Bill Murdoch was the MPP who sponsored a private members bill in 2006 to have the Ontario study the question of raw milk regulation. The bill was defeated.
