  3. happy birthday! my ears thank you for all the hard work that you do.
  4. well put. the most shocking thing i have learned about the world of biotech is the relative lack of oversight. when the proponent of a GE technology looks for approval, they submit their research, and their claims are evaluated without third party verification. if biotech is going to move forward and advance the interests of humanity and the environment rather than the interests of the patent holders, there needs to be independent research done on emerging technologies. there are so many examples of less than stellar biotech ( starlink corn, triffid flaxseed, and even the virtual end of organic canola) that something needs to change. I have heard a proposal repeated that the biotech companies, maybe through CropLife, fund independent research to duplicate company science before health canada or ag canada approve a GE technology.
  5. Conservatives Block Vote on Moratorium on GM Alfalfa. Write your MP today! http://www.cban.ca/alfalfaction UPDATE MARCH 10, 2011 Conservative Members of Parliament purposefully delayed a vote on the motion for a moratorium on GM alfalfa at today's Agriculture Committee meeting! A full hour was spent discussing the motion for a moratorium without a vote ever being called. First, Conservatives protested putting the motion ahead of others but the Chair, Conservative Larry Miller, allowed the GM alfalfa motion to be debated. Then the Conservatives delayed with their comments until the meeting time ran out. The Liberals, NDP and Bloc members all support the moratorium so if the vote had happened today, the motion would have been approved and the motion would have passed to the House of Commons for a vote! The motion will be debated at the next Committee meeting which could be March 22. 16 members of the public, including farmers, attended the Committee meeting on March 10 to witness Conservative delay tactics first hand.
