Milk War is the story of organic dairy farmer Michael Schmidt’s battle to legalize the sale of unpasteurized milk in Canada. In defiance of federal law, Schmidt has supplied his friends and neighbours with raw milk for over 20 years. On November 21st, 2006 Schmidt’s dairy farm was raided by 20 armed officers, his equipment was seized, all dairy products were destroyed and farmer Schmidt was charged with 20 criminal offences for distributing unpasteurized milk. A David and Goliath story; when asked if he was willing to go jail Michael said: “Whatever it takes to give people the freedom to choose healthy nutritious food.”

Speaker: Karen Selick of the Canadian Constitution Foundation
