Updated May 2013Producer and consumer groups can sign here.

Groups Endorse the “No to GMO Alfalfa” Campaign

The commercialization of genetically modified alfalfa — GMO Alfalfa — planned by Monsanto and Forage Genetics International, would have a severe, negative impact on Canadian agriculture, markets, and our environment. The undersigned agriculture producer groups, consumer and environmental organizations, as well as concerned individuals, support the following:

• We oppose the sale, trade and production of GMO Alfalfa in Canada.
• We ask the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) to reassess its approval for environmental release of GMO Alfalfa.
• We want the public to understand the hazards, costs and market losses that would result if GMO Alfalfa were released into our environment.
