Trial for raw milk farmer
August 01, 2008 05:02

Dairy farmer Michael Schmidt will be back in a Newmarket court in September to fight contempt of court charges for allegedly distributing unpasteurized milk in the Region of York.

The motion for contempt filed by the region was scheduled to be heard yesterday, but Superior Court Justice Michael Brown ruled the matter was too serious to proceed without a trial. The case has been adjourned until Sept. 10 for a three-day trial to allow the court to hear from witnesses.

The region filed the contempt charge against Schmidt for failing to obey orders to stop distributing raw milk within its borders.

Quote:Selling raw milk is illegal in Canada. Health officials warn unpasteurized milk can contain dangerous pathogens, such as salmonella and E. coli. But proponents of raw milk, who claim it provides health benefits and aids digestion, say they have the right to consume whatever food they want.
