Take Action

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

Stop the Mega-Mergers

The global markets for seed and pesticides have been dominated by six powerful companies that are quickly becoming just three. Canada has approved ChemChina’s purchase of Syngenta and the merger between Dow and Dupont. Will Canada approve Bayer’s bid to buy Monsanto? If so, the new merged company could control around 30% of the world’s commercial seed market and 25% of agricultural pesticides.

Stop GM Fish

Some genetically engineered (GE or genetically modified) Atlantic salmon was sold in Canada in June 2017, unlabelled. The salmon are engineered to be fast-growing with a growth hormone gene from Chinook salmon and genetic material from ocean pout. It is the first GE food animal in the world. Take action to stop unlabelled GM fish in the grocery store and to prevent a risk to the future of wild salmon.

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. Contamination from GM alfalfa would ruin export markets for alfalfa products and threaten the future organic food and farming in the North America.

No GM Apple
