Just a couple of weeks after we originally reported on this petition, the Canadian Raw milk petition has soared past 2700 signatures putting it in the top 12 active petitions on the site.
When we first reported on it, we asked members to send the information to friends and family in Canada so they could sign the Canadian Raw Milk Petition. While we have made it past the initial 500 signatures needed in order to make sure this issue is heard in Parliament, we want to see the Canadian Raw Milk Petition in the top three on the site so that we can show the Canadian government and the Canadian people that a policy change is long past due.
Please add your voice to the other thousands who have signed by going to the petition site and filling out the requested information.
Canadian citizens are petitioning their government to create meaningful dialogue about raw milk availability. Please sign this petition and ask others to do the same. You do not need to be a raw milk drinker or even a supporter to sign this petition. This is about our rights as citizens to choose the foods of our choice from the producer of our choice.
Unlike in the United States where raw milk is legal in most states, Canada raw milk laws are much stricter making it almost impossible for farmers to provide raw milk to the people who want it.
A recent court case has brought this issue to the attention of Canadians. On March 16th 2016, a huge rally outside an Ontario courthouse, showed tremendous support for the Canadian raw milk farmers who are providing the wonderful health food to their communities.
Blogger and activist, Liz Reitzig, chronicles the case, the hearing and the farm of noted raw milk farmer, Michael Schmidt. To get a sense of the farmers who are targeted and what the government is trying to do to these farmers, take a look at her article about Glencolton Farms.

Raw milk is healthy.
I do agree if the Queen of England can drink raw milk with no side affects than so can the rest of us
I support legalizing regulated raw milk and milk products in Canada. Pasteurized milk products and processed foods are proven to be a greater risk. Just this week a pasteurized milk recall was issued in Ontario and Quebec. A June 8, 2016 news story reads: “Saputo expands Neilson brand chocolate milk recall over Listeria concerns”.
As Ted Beals, MS, MD, a physician and board certified pathologist, said in “THOSE PATHOGENS, WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW”:
“Listeria monocytogenes is present as well in our homes and on our bodies.
The public ingests listeria on a regular basis without becoming ill. You must ingest huge numbers of a virulent strain of Listeria monocytogenes to cause gastroenteritis.
…The most serious public health risk due to Listeria monocytogenes, comes from contaminated ready-to eat processed foods, particularly meats.”
