Lawyer Karen Selick debates raw milk on CHCH TV 11 today at 5:30 PM

Lawyer Karen Selick talks to A Channel reporter yesterday at the Newmarket courthouse.

Canadian Constitution Foundation litigation director Karen Selick will be a featured guest later today on CHCH television in Hamilton;  she will be taking part in a panel discussion with Hamilton’s medical officer of health, and possibly a representative from the Dairy Farmers of Ontario (DFO). Sounds like we could be making history here. Tune in at 5:30 PM today, Thursday April 14th, 2011.

    It turned out the DFO declined.

    Well, no surprise there, but it’s good they asked.

    Well the DFO had never the spine to face the music. They very good using thousands of dollars in advertising money to misinform and mislead the world. To have the courage to be challenged, not them.

      But maybe if they keep getting asked like this, they’ll get the message that they need to be able to formulate a public response.

    Dr. Mackie made the point that “prohibition” might cause more harm than good by making raw milk go underground. He seems to be more open-minded than some in his position.

    Karen, do you know if the segment can be watched online anywhere?

    How about having a similar debate with a mock DFO representative? Openly declared, of course. One of the writer-performers from Air Farce comes to mind . . . When an elephant in the room won’t talk to us, a little tongue-in-cheek exposure could help shed more light on why we are in this very sad, grossly undemocratic situation than court appearances do. I would certainly wish for a little comic relief round about now, especially for you, Karen. Thanks so much for all that you are doing, legally, judiciously, ethically, and morally.

      Sounds like a great idea, Beverley! Perhaps you would write the script. Maybe we could get Randy Hillier to play the DFO rep.

  7. Beverley Viljakainen

    I think Randy would be fun and he could easily get himself up to look like one of them. As for writing the script so as to do this serious farce justice (pardon the pun!), it would need someone who knows the DFO ‘script’ in much more detail than I. I tend to catch ‘officialdom’ drift and then act in accordance with what doesn’t smell so strongly as motivated by the desire to profit and control. Thanks for the offer though.
