Charles Caccia Liberal Davenport, ON

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-448, an act to amend the Food and Drugs Act (genetically modified food).

Mr. Speaker, this bill, in essence, would provide that all foods or food ingredients that are on or that contain genetically modified material be labelled.

This labelling would allow for research and post-release monitoring of potential health effects of genetically modified food. It would also enable purchasers to decide whether to purchase products containing genetically modified material.
