Schmidt for milk regulations
November 13, 2010 § Leave a comment
In the Globe and Mail this week Durham farmer Michael Schmidt has made another media appearance. The unofficially appointed raw milk champion is working to support other farmers distributing raw milk across Canada. After traveling to Alberta to back Edmonton farmers, he withdrew his support because he didn’t think that the particular farm was up to standards. He says that this is exactly why there needs to be regulations.
Says Schmidt: “This is exactly why we cannot allow how it is done in Canada now. Everything is pushed underground. People start up doing certain things and there is no proper regulation in place. It is not an Ontario issue, it’s a national issue.”
