Letter to Dalton McGuinty: Michael Schmidt

glass of milk
Posted by on October 28, 2011

I followed a link this morning posted by AnnMarie Michaels, from, posted on facebook to write an email to Premier Dalton McGuinty in Canada that sincerely requests that he meet with Michael Schmidt and allow the Canadian citizens access to natural (raw) milk.

I do believe that Michael Schmidt’s protest goes so deep into the issue of our freedom, that it demands our attention. I don’t believe that because this is happening outside of the US, it does not affect us.

Make no mistake: this is setting a precedent world wide, and Michael Schmidt knows it. So does Premier Dalton McGuinty.

If you are scratching your head wondering why there are so many recent attacks on this most natural and innocent of foods, you need look no further than the agenda of world government. Our choosing of a natural food, like raw milk, is creating a problem for this agenda: it is independence. In other words, we are a group of people that do not need a corporate conglomerate to feed ourselves. We have walked outside the grid, friends, and that is slowly being chipped away, or even ripped away at gun point, as was the case this summer in Los Angeles (Rawsome).

Our right to choose anything in our lives is being forcibly taken from us. Our children are forced to take vaccinations and it is reinforced by our school system; our right to real food is blocked time and time again and it is reinforced by an industrial agriculture; our right to travel and move about freely is encumbered and it is reinforced by a military/police state; our rights to natural supplements and vitamins is thwarted and it is reinforced by a pharmaceutical complex; and our rights to financial freedom is stolen through a non-federal Federal Reserve and international banking organizations.

This is a pivotal moment of our time, and I think we are right where we need to be. Although writing about this issue has it’s limitations, it is a tool, none the less. My letter this morning, email actually, seemed to come from a place I didn’t know I had. I seemed to channel one of our founding fathers, you might say, and out came the words to speak my peace.

The truth is, my choice of the best milk on the planet doesn’t have to be yours or anyone else’s choice. It’s about that freedom to make that choice. That is what we are standing up for.


Dear Premier Dalton McGuinty,

Are you aware yet, from all of the many emails you have undoubtedly received, that a farmer named Michael Schmidt has quite a strong desire to speak with you? I’m sure you are, and I must believe you think it better politically to ignore his request and his campaign, by starving himself, to right the wrong of your policy on raw milk.


I’m sure that your decision to keep your fellow Canadians from access to this most traditional food is one that comes from much higher up than most of us are privy to, however, that policy is so much more than access to a simple unadulterated food: it is food freedom incarnate. This is another point I’m willing to wage you are quite aware of.


So the question left to be answered is this: Do you or do you not believe in freedom? That is what this entire globe is questioning right now and you are at a pinnacle of it. Your choices today will affect that future. You will either stand up for the goodness of and in all people, or you will choose to turn your back on our fundamental right, God given, if you will: the freedom to choose what we eat.


Choose freedom, Sir. Become the person in history you’d like to be.


With Great Sincerity,


Nancy Piscatello
