From Ontario raw milk farmer and food rights advocate Michael Schmidt:
In 1994 our adventure into the food rights battle started with a vengeance.
If I count right that means 20 years this February.
In the meantime we had;
5 Premiers in Ontario
3 different parties forming the Ontario Government.
10 ministers of Agriculture in Ontario !!!!
11 Ministers of Health in Ontario
3 Popes in the Vatican
3 Presidents in the US
2 medical officers of health in our county
260,000 deaths deaths directly related to smoking just in Ontario
0 death due to raw milk.
1,5 million liters of milk produced at Glencolton Farms
No comments needed since all these numbers speak for themselves
And raw milk still keeps flowing at Glencolton Farms, because the cows keep coming home in the morning and in the evening – The amazing reality of life.
I have not counted the days in court, the amount of court papers and the money spent on defending our right for food of our choice.
I just know that we WILL prevail.
After 7 years we finally will have our case heard in front of Ontario’s highest court on February 5.
Happy new year.
2014 = 2+1+4 =7. Or 14 divided by 2 is also 7
