      Was a great success. About 85 people. Four MLAs came and pledged support for raw milk availability via herd-share operations, including opposition critics for Health and Agriculture, representing "caucus," or the entire NDP legislators. Two VIHA agents videoed Jan and Carol milking Shakti and sharing the milk with an EcoReality Class D Investment Shareholder.
    2. Request that all residents sign standard BC Residential Tennancy Agreements (RTA), and that the yellow house and white house residents begin paying rent of $1,100 and $750, plus insurance, taxes, and utilities, respectively, which is 1/2 of the market rental rate. In addition, the white house residents are to pay $350 per month toward back taxes and insurance until such are completely paid. --Jan Steinman 18:31, 28 November 2011 (PST)
