    I just got this in my email from Urban Harvesters.
    This sure made me wonder if I will be able to continue growing plants to feed them.
    Whats going to be in my plants? :mad:

    Note: The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is seeking input on proposed seed modernization legislation. According to food security consultant Cathleen Kneen, the changes proposed by the CFIA would essentially allow the quick and unencumbered registration of GM and pharma-crop seeds in Canada. If this is a concern to you (as it is to many in the food security community), it's urgent and important that your voice be heard, as most of the feedback that the CFIA has received to date is positive support from companies that stand to benefit from the proposed changes.

    The cut-off for input is Sat, Mar 31st.

    We've just been hearing about it this week, so this is a last-minute notice, unfortunately!

    You can find the CFIA consultation document at
    I just found their address where you can have your say:

    No brains at all, is the problem. Only time people will start to wake up is when these products cross pollinate with food crops and people start to get sick.

    Seeds of Change is a great source for organically-grown, non-GM, and many heritage crops. I think it is www.seedsofchange.com. GREAT site and great products. I've mostly gotten tomatoes and basil from them, I have been pleased every time.
