From Bayshore Broadcasting, Thurs. Jan. 28th, 2016:
“Durham area raw milk producer Michael Schmidt has received two injunction notices from York Region and the Attorney General on behalf of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural affairs.
Schmidt says the blanket injunctions name himself, his wife and son — as well as any “John Doe” producing and distributing raw milk in Ontario.
He says it would basically make it a crime for any farmer in the province to hand over raw milk to a neighbour and he plans to fight the injunctions in a Newmarket court March 16th.
