Access to raw milk in Canada.

In an attempt to find out what the raw milk drinking citizens of Canada wish to see as far access to raw milk we would appreciate your help in filling out this poll.  Thanks!

The outright legalization majority is surprising and, I think, a bit dangerous.

If it is legalized across the board, I predict that large dairies will attempt to "cash in" on it, with potentially disastrous results.

I'm reminded of what ag writer Gene Logsdon wrote: "I donít know if the defenders of the pasteurized milk monopoly will ever give up their crusade, but I sort of hope they donít. Milk tastes so much better to me when itís bootlegged than when itís legal."

Personally, I think legalizing shared-ownership situations is the best way to go. It's ridiculous that one cannot own a share of a cow or goat and legally get milk from it.

Interesting point about micro-dairies. I just don't know if I trust the government (and their industrial food industry handlers) to make such a call in a fair and impartial manner.
