Trial date in 2015 set in the Michael Schmidt and Montana Jones vs the CFIA sheep-napping conspiracy case

I’ve been mostly quiet, waiting. Waiting for light, for inspiration, for renewed spirit, for solutions regarding the future and the farm and waiting for the date to be set for the preliminary hearing.

Don’t have all the answers yet. Forging ahead and trusting they will appear when they will. It’s hard to fathom it’s been four years of varying states of limbo already, since the CFIA Sheep Siege began. Four years!

The most important realization is that things will happen, things will change. For better or worse, they will change with or without me. Isn’t it better to show up?

I’ve felt monumentally supported at times, and at others, whipped myself with blame for being anxious and overwhelmed with the feeling that the CFIA has stolen my simple life. Continue reading

CFIA lays 5 criminal charges against Michael Schmidt, Montana Jones and two others over 31 Shropshire sheep

From a CFIA news release dated Dec. 5th:

December 5, 2012, Ottawa: In consultation with the Public Prosecution Service of Canada, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has laid criminal charges against four people, following the unlawful removal of sheep from a federally quarantined premises in April 2012.

It is alleged that by unlawfully removing and concealing the sheep, the program was threatened and the health and safety of other sheep and the industry were jeopardized. Continue reading

Michael Schmidt charged over sheep

From David E. Gumpert, on the Complete Patient blog:

“The 31 famous rare sheep suspected by Canadian public health authorities of harboring the feared scrapie disease have all been found, slaughtered, and tested free of disease.

But the affair of the missing Shropshire sheep–kidnappedearlier this year by a mystery group known as the  Farmers Peace Corps, opposed to the government agenda of summarily disposing of the rare sheep on suspicion of harboring a pathogen–is still alive for the  authorities. They are preparing to charge Ontario raw dairy farmer Michael Schmidt with serious crimes in the case, which involved relocating the sheep from the farm of Montana Jones. Schmidt took on the role of mediator between the government and its opponents, but the government clearly sees Schmidt as having been an important part of the sheep-relocation scheme.  Continue reading

“Where’s the real conspiracy?”, asks Michael Schmidt, pointing to GMOs, raw milk bans and not to mention the extermination of rare heritage breeds.

From David E. Gumpert, on the Complete Patient blog:

“…It would be nice if such matters were a subject for public discussion. But in Canada and the U.S., the regulator approach is brutally simple:  We know best and we’ll decide what to do and everyone better listen to us…or else.

Ontario raw dairy farmer Michael Schmidt is simply seeking an avenue for discussion about an aspect of this issue that could be sensitive but important to many farmers and consumers alike–the wholesale elimination of rare sheep species, without consideration of possibly alternative avenues of investigation. He is prepared to accept destruction of the animals if they are actually found to be harboring disease.           Continue reading

Conspiracy theory the basis for threat of 14 years in prison for Michael Schmidt?

News release via Globe Newswire:

Ontario, CA, Aug. 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — On August 2 2012 the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) raided the farms of Ontario farmer Michael Schmidt and Montana Jones in connection with the disappearance of Jones’ herd of genetically rare Shropshire sheep.  CFIA brought 20 officers and multiple police cars to conduct the 7:00am raid on the Schmidt’s farm.  During the 8-hour raid, officers confiscated all electronic recording devices from the home and farm, including computers, cell phones and cameras.  Schmidt and Jones both faces possible conspiracy charges that could result in up to 14 years in prison.

In March of this year, a group calling themselves the “Farmers Peace Corps” claimed responsibility for the disappearance of the sheep that were destined for slaughter due to a connection with the disease Scrapie.  While Scrapie is not transmissible to humans and causes no threat to people, it is seen by the CFIA as a threat to other sheep.  In June, the Shropshire sheep were found and immediately destroyed by CFIA.  They all tested negative for the disease.  CFIA is refusing Jones the appropriate compensation for her sheep.

Do “elites” use food to dumb us down?

Alex Jones believes that food is being degraded to dumb people down. Here’s an excerpt from his recent post on Infowars.com:

“The grocery store, along with your kitchen sink, are two of the most dangerous places in the world.

In a special video, Alex Jones addresses one of the darkest modes of power the globalists have used to control the population– food. The adulteration of the planet’s staple crops, genetically-altered species and intentionally-altered water, food and air all amount to a Eugenics operation to weaken the masses and achieve full spectrum domination.
