GMOs: Ottawa Presents Its Reform Using Files from an Agrochemicals Lobby

Canadian Biotechnology Action Network

With this controversial reform proposal, the seed industry would be exempt from controls and transparency obligations

Did the agrochemical lobby participate in the drafting of controversial federal reforms to facilitate the marketing of a new generation of genetically modified organisms (GMOs)? Two embargoed documents from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), obtained by Radio-Canada, raise questions among the interest groups that received them.

Jennifer Hubert, executive director of the CropLife Canada lobby, which defends the interests of companies that market seeds, pesticides, fertilizers and fertilizers, appears as the author of the government’s Word files, in which the reform is presented.

The recipients of the embargoed document presenting the reform proposal include agri-food interest groups, as well as officials from Health Canada and Agriculture Canada.
