From Gordon Watson in Vancouver:
Wednesday evening October 19th 2011 doors open at 7 pm
at the Sapperton Pensioners’ Hall 318 Keary Street, New Westminster. Free admission
This coming Wednesday, for about an hour, starting at 7:20 pm, I’ll be giving a bit of an update to do with raw milk continuing to be available in British Columbia.
In a nutshell : the ruling in Ontario, in which the Court ruled against raw milk dairy farmer Michael Schmidt, does not change our situation here in BC. REAL MILK is still flowing within the ‘Our Cows’ cowshare.
I set up cowshare – originally named “Home on the Range” – based on the right to use and enjoy private property. We could always prove precisely who held shares, and exactly what was the property we owned jointly = cows in the herd as it was registered with Jersey Canada. In contrast to our model : when it got down to brass tacks in Ontario, Michael Schmidt didn’t come up with the paperwork to satisfy the Court that the cowshare he was running there, was actually a joint-ownership arrangement. He was found guilty of ‘selling milk’.
The ‘Our Cows’ herdshare here in BC is, at law and in practice, genuinely a group of individuals who are exercising are right to use and enjoy the production of our jointly-owned asset = our herd of Jerseycows
Now Fraser Health Authority is having a go at Michael Schmidt. Although he took pains to explain his capacity as the Agister for Our Cows, and that the herdshare in BC had been re-organized as a vehicle delivering raw milk as a cosmetic, rather than for human consumption, FHA alleges he’s in contempt of the Court Order which put Alice Jongerden out of business.
Fraser Health says the same thing against me. The thing is set to be heard in the Supreme Court of British Columbia in New Westminster, on November 2 2011 at 9:30 am. Having been through 5 trials for contempt of Court in other political issues … and won a couple of them! … I do know a thing or two about how it’s supposed to go.
For the second hour on October 19th, I will give my opinion about the upcoming criminal prosecution of Russell A Porisky, set for trial in the Supreme Court of BC, at Vancouver. Starting back about a decade ago, Mr Porisky used to hold forth about how the Income Tax Act didn’t apply to a Natural Person. And how that concept could be applied so as to avoid paying tax on income to the Person to whom a Social Insurance Number was allocated. I took a bit of flak from members of the cult dba as the Paradigm School of Prophetic Tax Law Interpretation, when I criticized him for perpetrating a fraud on consumers, by omitting to tell prospective customers about certain Paradigm students who had gone to gaol for tax evasion, after RevScam disagreed with the Porisky method.
Mister Porisky now faces 9 counts such as tax evasion, and counselling an indictable offence. Finally! he will get his opportunity to explain it all, from the prisoner’s box.

Directions to the hall : Keary Street crosses East Columbia Street, immediately to the south west of the Royal Columbian Hospital. The hall is at 318 Keary, about 200 yards up hill from the Sapperton SkyTrain Station.
The #112 bus goes right by Royal Columbian Hospital Free parking around the hall is quite limited / hard to find on residential side streets. So be prepared to park a ways a way, and walk to the hall. There is some pay parking just around the corner.
