We the undersigned residents of Canada note the following:

Canadian consumers have a right to know exactly what they are buying.

Mandatory labeling of genetically modified ingredients will give Canadians the information they need to make informed choices about the food they eat.

64 countries have already implemented mandatory labeling of genetically modified foods.

A balanced approach to the use of genetically modified organisms considers the health and sustainability of our environment and communities, the protection of biodiversity, and the economic interests of farmers.

Therefore, we call on the Government of Canada to introduce mandatory labeling of products containing ingredients that have been genetically modified and undertake a balanced approach to the use of genetically modified organisms.

Almost 90% of Canadians support labeling genetically modified foods – and giving consumers the choice.

But for years, Conservative and Liberal governments haven’t listened. They’ve failed to act.

Labeling genetically modified foods will allow consumers to make their own choices about the food they eat.

It’s time for Canada to catch up with what 64 other countries already do, and label genetically modified foods. Because we all have a right to know.

Grocery Chains: Get GM Sweet Corn Out! | Leadnow.ca

Grocery Chains: Get GM Sweet Corn Out! | Leadnow.ca.

Please sign our petition to the major grocery chains in Canada, to get genetically modified (GM, also called genetically engineered) sweet corn (corn on the cob) out of the food supply. 

In October 2013, the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network (CBAN) tested conventional sweet corn samples from across Canada and found unlabelled genetically modified fresh sweet corn in grocery stores, roadside stands and farmers markets. 

There has been a small, undetermined, amount of GM sweet corn, from the company Syngenta, on the market for over 10 years. However, in late 2011 Monsanto launched a line of GM sweet corn varieties as well. 

GM sweet corn is the only whole GM food grown in Canada - as opposed to GM field corn, which is processed into food ingredients, animal feed and biofuels.
