“The Grey County local of the National Farmers Union helped organise a protest in Owen Sound yesterday.
About a hundred people rallied at the Grey Bruce Health Unit headquarters in support of raw milk activist Michael Schmidt.
Grey NFU President Sean McGivern says drinking raw milk is an issue of freedom of choice.
The rally could end up creating more legal problems for Schmidt.
He handed out cups of what he said was raw milk.
A health unit official confiscated a sample of that milk and officials say if it is, in fact, unpasteurized Schmidt will face more charges.
Supporters of Michael Schmidt say it’s an issue of freedom of choice.
