April: Many thanks to Global Media for getting this out: Heidi Osterman, a Kelowna Nutritionist, came to Vancouver in the early spring to our big GMO Workshop and got very inspired. She educated herself on the perils of GMO and is now educating others to understand what they eat and why they should care. I am thrilled at the number of protesters that showed up to this rally: people are waking up and getting the message. Thanks Heidi, you go girl!! And thanks to NDP’s Alex Atamanenko for bringing Bill C-474 forward: let’s all get together and support this bill for Canada!

A short note to everyone coming this evening to our GMO Workshop in Vancouver:
We have 2 special guests coming from Kelowna: Dr. Wittel MD and Nutritionist Heidi Osterman are driving in today to attend the workshop!
Their presence is wonderful – Dr. Wittel has many years of activist experience. Heidi Osterman is interested in bringing this message forward to more people. This workshop is a perfect venue for them to work with interested and enthusiastic activists.
I have been asked by several US groups to work on this: creating a model on workshops for others to use and follow. Together we have great power – let’s make this workshop a “model” for how to do it right!
