Chilliwack’s Home on the Range raw milk dairy is filing a constitutional challenge of the Public Health Act’s ban on the production and distribution of unpasteurized milk in B.C. Supreme Court, while Fraser Health sits on the sidelines.
Fraser Health had issued the dairy’s then-operator Alice Jongerden with a cease and desist order and sought and obtained a court injunction last year to stop the dairy from producing raw milk. But Fraser Health spokesman Roy Thorpe-Dorward said the health authority will take no further action against the dairy, now operating as Our Cows, until the court challenge has run its course.
