HD 205 – Milk War Q & A Vancouver BC

Excerpts from the Question and Answer session with Alice Jongerden and Declan O’Driscoll after the screening of Milk War in Vancouver, BC. Gives the history of the pasteurisation laws in Canada, some of the differences between BC and Ontario, how Home on the Range cowshare got started and why Alice can’t milk the cows at present. In BC raw milk has been declared a hazardous substance without looking at all the facts. Given the increase in food-borne illness (and deaths) in the industrial agriculture food system targeting small scale local community dairies is irrational and unnecessary.

Milk War was co-produced for ichannel by Stornoway Communications and The Path to Gimli. Milk War premiered at the Royal Cinema in Toronto in September, 2010 and can be seen on iChannel.

Amid a resurgence in local food systems emerges Milk War, a documentary highlighting raw milk skirmishes that pit corporate-owned regulatory agencies against food freedom.

Written and directed by award-winning journalist, Kevin O’Keefe, and produced by Declan O’Driscoll, the 60-minute film explores the Michael Schmidt case, a biodynamic farmer who legally challenged Ontario’s ban on raw milk. -Dissident Voice
