It was a great day in Victoria as people from all over gathered on the lawn of the Legislative Assembly of BC in solidarity for Peace and the Planet. You can see a report from CHEK News here.
It was an especially good day for supporters of labelling of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO), as Rachel Parent of Kids Right to Know joined local activists to promote her work to make sure that GMO labelling becomes the norm in Canadian food manufacturing.
Rachel was joined by Victoria NDP MP Murray Rankin, who has put a motion forward in the federal House of Commons to require mandatory labelling of GMO foods. You can read more about Murray's motion here, and sign the petition to support mandatory labelling of GMO foods here.
