The motion introduced to Vancouver City Council by Councillor Adriane Carr this morning was seconded by Councillor Reimer, then referred by Councillor Deal to the Vancouver Food Policy Council for discussion and advice.
The Vancouver Food Policy Council will now discuss, very soon we hope, what can be done to ensure that Vancouver is GE free. We will keep you posted and expect there to be some movement very soon.
GE Free BC has already made a presentation to the Vancouver Food Policy Council on Vancouver City becoming a GE Free zone, and there was general support and praise from members. So we hope for a positive result and Vancouver will become the first major municipality in North America to declare itself a GE Free zone (after Richmond of course).
