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
If you look around, you can see the sorcerers of this particular apocalypse already hard at work trying to change mankind’s future into a disaster very much like the one described here. Nevermind climate change and bizarro weather (HAARP anybody?). It doesn’t take much imagination to guess what could happen with the continued and expanded use of GMOs and worse rendering much of the world’s food unusable. The people of Venezuela have already been living with $150-a-dozen eggs, and empty supermarket shelves — which only goes to support sci-fi author William Gibson’s claim that “The future is already here — it’s just not evenly distributed”. From VICE Motherboard:
“The US national security industry is planning for the impact of an unprecedented global food crisis lasting as long as a decade, according to reports by a government contractor.
The studies published by CNA Corporation in December 2015, unreported until now, describe a detailed simulation of a protracted global food crisis from 2020 to 2030.
