No Legal Contamination from Unsafe GMOs
Stop "Low Level Presence"
Agriculture Canada is proposing to allow contamination of our food supply with genetically modified (GM) foods that have not been approved by Health Canada. The government wants to allow a percent, 0.2% or higher, of food imports to be contaminated with GM foods that have not yet been assessed by Health Canada for safe human consumption, but are approved in another country deemed trustworthy by Health Canada. The government calls this “Low Level Presence” (LLP) and argues that this “low level” of contamination from unapproved GM foods is not harmful. Click here for more information on Low Level Presence.
Discussions between Europe and Canada about "Low Level Presence" are also part of the Canada-Europe Trade Agreement.
