GE Free BC wrote to about 600 candidates in the upcoming municipal elections, and we have posted the responses we got on our blog!
Almost 100% of the candidates that responded said no to GE crops and animals! We know from the 2013 Union of BC Municipalities resolution asking the Provincial government to ban GE crops and animals that municipal level can make strong statements in favour of sustainable agriculture and against GE. And we now have 15 individual municipal level GE Free zones in BC, including Richmond and North Vancouver.
