Tony Mitra's curator insight, July 25, 2013 1:07 PM

If you live in BC, please consider downloading this petion sheet, printing it, and collecting signatures from your neighbours and friends, leave with shops, restaurants, naturopaths, community centers, churches, friends, neighbors...anyone who supports protecting our food security. The big brands have different recipes for Europe without GMOs and banned pesticides/preservatives, that they put in North American recipes. Indian supreme court seems to be ordering the Government to ban GMO altogether for indefinite period due concerns over safety.

India and Europe spoke loud enough to make a change. It's our turn to speak out for our children, the animals, our environment, our future. Please share.
