Take Action

These are the current strategic actions we ask you to take with us. Thank you!

Label GM Foods

Private Members Bill C-291 for mandatory labelling of genetically modified (GM) foods will be debated in the House of Commons in early March and again in April. Over 80% of Canadians want GM foods labelled. If you are one of them, now is the time to contact your Member of Parliament and ask them to vote YES to Bill C-291.

No GM Apple

Stop the Mega-Mergers

The global markets for seed and pesticides are dominated by six powerful companies. But six could soon become just three if the Canadian government and other governments around the world allow the proposed new corporate mega-mergers. Canada has just approved ChemChina’s purchase of Syngenta. Will Canada approve Bayer’s bid to buy Monsanto? And the Dow-Dupont merger?

Stop GM Fish

A genetically modified (GM) Atlantic salmon is now approved in Canada, but its not yet on the market. The salmon are engineered to be fast-growing with a growth hormone gene from Chinook salmon and genetic material from ocean pout (an eel-like creature). It would be the first GE food animal in the world and would land on grocery store shelves unlabelled.

Stop GM Alfalfa

Alfalfa (harvested as hay) is used as high-protein feed for animals like dairy cows, beef cattle, lambs, poultry and pigs and is also used to build up nutrients in the soil, making it particularly important for organic farming. If introduced, GM alfalfa would ruin export markets for alfalfa products and threaten the future organic food and farming in the North America. Click here for more information and action.
