NO to genetically modified salmon (printable petition)

Do you stand with the NDP in saying no to GMO salmon?
We were shocked to learn in early August that nearly 5 tonnes of genetically modified salmon has been sold in Canada, and that many people may not know they’re buying it.
“We are very worried that it’s for sale, and we don’t know where. We could all be eating it without knowing it,” said Thibault Rehn, coordinator of Vigilance OGM.
“That’s why we’re calling on the Liberal government to ban the sale and breeding of genetically modified salmon in Canada, like the United States has done, until labeling standards warning consumers are put in place and independent environmental and health studies have shown GMO salmon to be safe.
GMO labelling is already in place in 60 countries around the world.
