Take Action

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

CBAN

Ban GM Field Tests

On June 14, the Canadian government announced a contamination incident with unapproved genetically modified (GM, also called genetically engineered) wheat. Several GM wheat plants were found on a road in Alberta in an isolated contamination case – but the government does not know how they got there. No GM wheat has ever been approved for growing or eating in Canada, but the GM trait found growing in Alberta was field tested by Monsanto from 1998-2000. Support the call from the National Farmers Union to ban outdoor testing of GM crops. Click here to send your letter instantly.

Stop GM Fish

Some genetically engineered (GE or genetically modified) Atlantic salmon was sold in Canada in June 2017, unlabelled, and more is being shipped to Canada this year. 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 GM 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

Canada has approved the genetically modified non-browning apple. The GM apple is hitting the market in the US this year, and could come to Canada soon. Write to the head office of your grocery store today.
