Support Bill C-474

Hi everyone! It's been quite awhile since my last post...and a nice little farm(er) update (with pictures!) will be coming before too long, now that my beloved little laptop is back up and working - albeit short a few things that were lost on the old (broken) hard drive. :O(

In the meantime, I would like to encourage any of you who stumble back onto the blog in the next little while to consider writing to your MP (which you can do very easily from CBAN's website here) by April 14th, expressing your support for Bill C-474, which would require that "an analysis of potential harm to export markets be conducted before the sale of any new genetically engineered seed is permitted". This important bill will help stop GE wheat and GE alfalfa from being grown in Canada commercially, and help protect farmers from GE contamination and the loss of important markets, as has happened with both canola and flax.

This issue is critically important for all of us as eaters as well, for if we don't express our concern about GE crops being grown, they will end up at all of our dining room tables, whether they've been invited to dinner or not! Thanks for considering this call to action!
