Food safety rally at Kerry Park
The True Food Foundation has organized a rally at Kerry Park in downtown Kelowna Sunday against the use of genetically modified organisms in food.
Saturday, Percy Schmeiser, the Canadian farmer who brought a suit against Monsanto after genetically-modified seeds blew onto his fields, will speak at Okanagan College, 7 p.m., on the topic of David vs. Goliath.
The group says the issue is urgent, with GMOs set to devastate the entire seed supply.
“We will see the organic farm community decimated across the country,” said Arnold Taylor, spokesperson for the Canadian organic growers.
At Sunday’s rally at Kerry Park, from 2 to 3 p.m., participants will have an opportunity to sign a petition against GMOs, calling for mandatory labelling of food containing GMOs.
