MPs send GE bill for more study

APRIL 14 UPDATE: MPs voted in favour of sending Bill C-474 to the Agriculture Committee for study and amendments. Visit to find out how your MP voted, and other actions you can take.

Canadian Biotechnology Action Network asks you to act before April 14th in support of Bill C-74.

Bill C-474 would require that “an analysis of potential harm to export markets be conducted before the sale of any new genetically engineered seed is permitted.” The Bill could stop GE alfalfa and GE wheat and protect farmers from economic hardship caused by GE crops.

The biotech industry has launched a heavy lobbying campaign to stop Bill C-474, but it is not dead yet. The official vote on Bill C-474 will happen on April 14.
