For more than a year, Rachel Parent has challenged Rona Ambrose to discuss the labelling of genetically modified food. Finally after Global Canada News got involved, Canada’s Health Minister met with Rachel.
Scheduled for 30 minutes, the meeting ran closer to 45 minutes. Rachel emerged from the meeting with a smile on her face. “[Ms. Ambrose] was very willing to listen, which was amazing, she was just very kind, sweet and receptive. She told us that she did know Canadians want GMOs labelled.”
Indeed, polling shows close to 90% of Canadians would like mandatory GMO labelling.
