On Saturday May 25th an estimated two million people from around the world protested the control that this big chemical company has over our food supply. Recently in the US 71 senators voted against an amendment to the Senate version of the 2013 Farm Bill that would have guaranteed states the right to enact mandatory GMO labeling laws, yet 90 percent of consumers want to have food labelled if it contains genetically engineered ingredients. Last year Monsanto donated almost $6 million dollars to agricultural lobbyists to defeat Prop 37 in California. almost 1 million of that money went directly to political candidates. How is that for representing your constituents? In Canada the same thing is happening. The federal government is allowing more and more crops that are genetically engineered to come into this country. Even in our region Bayer Crop Science is looking for agrologist to run test plots of GM soy. GMOs threaten our food system, our health and the environment, we should have the right to know what is in our food! Let Cathy McLeod know we don’t want GMOs in our beautiful valley, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
