Next Thursday, Sept. 1st, Vaxxed will wrap up a five-week run at Toronto’s Kingsway Theatre. The doc is also being screened at the Imagine-Rainbow Cinema in Ottawa until Sept. 1.
The Toronto theatrical run began with four question and answer sessions with Dr. Wakefield and Brian Burrowes on July 29-30 (opening weekend).
Originally scheduled to play for one week only, the run was extended due to ongoing interest generated by word of mouth publicity.
More about the movie here.
From Jon Rappoport’s blog:
““Let’s see, Mr. Reporter. You received an undercover recording of a medical researcher confessing his crimes. You posted the recording and wrote about it. You’re the one who is guilty of a crime. Next case!”
“Wait, Your Honor! That recording is vital information for the public. It shows that a vaccine considered to be safe actually causes brain damage in children.”
“No. It shows you violated the law by posting the recording. It was illegally made, and you aided and abetted and forwarded that crime. As I said, next case!”
Buckle up. Continue reading
You may remember a few months ago when the exclusion of Vaxxed, a documentary film about the issues around vaccination, was excluded from the Tribeca film festival in New York.
Well, as it turns out, that exclusion was maybe the best thing that could have happened to it. The resulting publicity has helped spark interest in the film and its message.
A week ago, last Friday, Vaxxed debuted in Toronto at the Kingsway Theatre, followed by a Q and A session with Dr. Wakefield. There was another Q and A after the screening on Saturday and then the film was set to run until August 4th, which was yesterday.
But now, due to public interest, screenings will be continuing until August 11th. So if you didn’t get down to see it already, there’s still an opportunity to do that.
Thousands of petition signers urge parliament to modernize milk laws
Toronto, Ontario—A group of Canadians are hoping for a Health Canada policy change for raw milk. A Parliament e-petition in favour of changes to Health Canada’s raw milk policy has already gathered over 4,000 signatures. The petition, sponsored by Member of Parliament (MP) Larry Miller, ends on August 11, 2016.
As many Canadians return to natural and local foods, a growing number of fresh food enthusiasts want their milk produced on a small-scale from local farms. This natural, raw milk, that people have been consuming for thousands of years, is actually illegal in Canada—something that the petition creator, Cory Harris, is working to change.
“I started this petition so Canadians can have the freedom of choice to access natural foods from farmers we know. Currently, not only is it illegal to buy raw milk from a farmer, it is even illegal for me to own a cow and board it at a farm,” says Harris. “I don’t like to see the government send raids and swat teams out to farms over milk. It is time to see this policy modernized and see Canada welcome a new and more collaborative, farmer and consumer-friendly model for raw milk alongside the existing system.” Continue reading
