How is it that people can smoke themselves to death or drink their lives into oblivion, and the government makes some lame gestures at trying to say it’s bad for your health? But you dare mention “raw milk” and you have the health police on your door step and all your activities monitored!
Raw milk is a health food in its natural state – no additives, preservatives, GMOs, or other harmful ingredients – just real food that’s good for you.
Michael Schmidt in Ontario, Canada is on a hunger strike until he gets a meeting with Dalton McGuinty, the premier of Ontario, to discuss changes to the sale of raw milk, making it legal for those who choose to buy it.
This debate is about the right to make choices. In an interview, Michael Schmidt made an interesting observation, “It’s really more about the right to informed choice, so it’s largely a political issue. I’m not trying to convince everyone else to drink raw milk. I just think that people who want to should have that right. You don’t see the government banning the sale of sliced meat, even though 22 people died during the lysteria outbreak. The hypocrisy is staggering.” (Source: http://www.thegridto.com/city/people/michael-schmidt-raw-milk-activist/)

A reader's response to "A Curse on the Betrayal of Canada": Reader's response: You clearly have no understanding of a parliamentary democracy if you think there...
How great is the pressure in politics and public life to capitulate to those who promote sin. This correspondence took place in 2003, regarding Member of Parliament Larry Spencer’s apology for statements made about homosexuality. Though in some respects his statements were inadvisable, they did not warrant a complete retraction. Sin is sin, and those who know it are more responsible for calling it what it is.
Victor corresponds with Preston Manning, Member of Parliament and leader of the Reform Party, encouraging Mr. Manning to stand in the Lord before men by publicly acknowledging Him and giving Him His due. If we are not willing to do this in the Lord by declaring and standing in what is right and true, in everyday circumstances, what are our lives about, and what are they worth?
