    Genetically engineered seeds

    Charlie Herlihy

    Le marché est dominé par de grandes compagnies qui détruisent toutes les graines développées au cours des siècles pour les remplacer par leurs produits patentés.
    One very important issue right now regards genetically engineered seeds, plants, and animals. As things stand now, no labeling of these things is required and consumers who don't want to buy them have to buy certified organic products because we don't allow the use of geneticaly engineered anything in our farming practices. I think that this is even more important than the use of pesticides, since the seed companies are ALL being bought by corporations that are then distroying all the seeds previously developed over the centuries and replacing them with their own patented, genetically altered seeds that can only be grown with the same company's chemicals, and the crops can then only be sold to the same corporation processing plant. In Alberta, Monsanto corp. already had the govt. there make it illegal to grow any variety of canola exept their own genetically engineered «Roundup Ready» canola that is designed to withstand the herbiside «roundup». Farmers must buy this seed every year from Monsanto. Organic canola farmers in Alberta don't know what to do now.
