Mr. Speaker, students from Notre-Dame-St-Joseph de La Prairie elementary school have come to Parliament Hill today to ask for mandatory labelling of genetically modified organisms.
After gathering information from the available literature and websites, Thomas Drolet and James Cameron created their own website where people can learn more about this.
In record time, nearly 2,000 people signed the petition against GMOs, half of them on the Internet. The purpose of the petition is to draw the government's attention to the negative and unknown effects of GMOs on the food chain and the environment.
Soon, I will table the petition on their behalf.
