Conservatives and Liberals defeat New Democrat GMO bill

New Democrat Agriculture Critic, Alex Atamanenko MP (BC Southern Interior) chastised the Harper Conservatives and their Liberal counterparts for defeating his GMO bill in the House of Commons last week.

“Once again we see these two major parties putting the interests of their big business buddies ahead of everyday farmers whose livelihoods can be destroyed in an instant from contamination by genetically engineered (GE) seeds and crops.”

“It has been an honour for me to bring this important debate to the forefront in the House of Commons,” stated Atamanenko. “While the fight for C-474 has been lost, New Democrats will continue to fight for Canadian Farmers and Consumers.”
