We understand that Mr. Robert Wager, who regularly attends such meetings to speak in favour of GE crops, will be attending. So if you are in the Saanich area please come out and make your presence felt. Over 300 hundred people turned up at the council meeting in Richmond in May to protest GE crops, when Council there passed a GE Free zone resolution. The Saanich meeting will feed into the decision to be made by Saanich Council later this year.
