This is a fund-raising POTLUCK SUPPER, to support candidate Brigid Kemp for City Council
Community by community, citizens are coming together to create zones across Canada that are free of genetically engineered (GE) plants, animals, crops and trees. The goal is to have 50 communities in Canada declare themselves GE-Free in the next 2 years.
"This movement is about long-term economic sustainability, local control over food production, a healthy environment and democracy, as opposed to food profiteering and the destruction of our genetic biodiversity through corporate control of seeds and agriculture," says Saskatchewan organic farmer, Percy Schmeiser.
