NDP MP Alex Atamanenkoand the Okanagan-Similkameen Farm Labour Society are hosting Genetically Engineered Foods and Human Health: A Cross-Canada Speaker’s Tour.
Two Canadian scientists and local growers will answer your questions about GE/GMO research and foods. Dr. Thierry Vrain, former head of the biotechnology at the Summerland Research Station, was paid to research and promote genetically engineered organisms. After a 30-year career with Agriculture Canada, he speaks against GE technology.
Dr. Shiv Chopra is a former Health Canada senior scientific advisor who blew the whistle on bovine growth hormone (rBGH). Banned in Canada, bovine growth hormone induces excessive milk production in cows.
This is a free event with a suggested donation of $5.00 at the door. No one will be turned away. Doors open at 6:30 pm Tuesday Nov. 26 at the Watermark Beach Resort Vineyard Room (across from Shoppers Drug Mart on Highway 3) in Osoyoos.
