Initiated by Veronique Audette from Hamilton, Ontario

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • Genetically modified (GMO, GM or genetically engineered) foods are not labeled in Canada;
  • Polls consistently show that over 80% of Canadians want mandatory labelling of GM foods; and
  • The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer has declared GM Crop herbicides – glyphosate – a “probable human carcinogen”. Its use has increased sharply with the development of genetically modified glyphosate-resistant crop varieties.
We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to establish mandatory labelling of all genetically modified foods.
