GMO foods

At the Biotechnology Reference Group of the Canadian Council of Churches recent meeting on April 20 we reviewed the development of a curriculum on biotechnology issues for faith groups.   We also reviewed a draft petition on the labelling of GMO foods which the BRG is considering submitting the Federal Commissioner on Environment and Sustainable Development.  In the petition we will ask the Commissioner whether or not the Government of Canada has reviewed the effectiveness of voluntary labelling; reviewed what other jurisdictions are doing re labelling of GMOs, and under what conditions would the Government of Canada consider labelling of GMOs.
