CANADIAN RAW MILK CRUSADER ENDS THIRTY-SEVEN DAY HUNGER STRIKE
MEETS WITH ONTARIO PREMIER DALTON MCGUINTY
Raw milk crusader Michael Schmidt has abandoned his hunger strike after meeting with Premier Dalton McGuinty on November 4, 2011.
Schmidt began his hunger strike in late September after he was found guilty on 15 of 19 charges related to the sale and distribution of raw milk.
The Durham farmer, who has been fighting for years for the right to sell unpasteurized milk, had a meeting with the premier’s chief of staff when McGuinty decided to join in.
A spokeswoman for McGuinty says the meeting went well, and Schmidt was invited to speak to the Liberal caucus, but the government will not change its position to allow the sale of raw milk….’
