The Inevitability of Contamination from GM Alfalfa Release in Ontario
The case for preventing the introduction of Roundup Ready alfalfa. April 2, 2013. Canadian Biotechnology Action Network. 20 pages.
This report is specific to the contamination risk if GM alfalfa is released in Ontario but the details are also widely applicable across Canada because:
- the same conditions for contamination are true across the country, with some technical variations
- contamination in any province is a threat to other parts of the country
- while the company Forage Genetics International says they will only introduce GM alfalfa in Eastern Canada for now, there is no guarantee of this into the future.
