Vancouver Island declares itself a GE Free zone
51 municipalities yesterday supported a motion brought forward by Metchosin to make Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities a genetically engineered free zone – from Victoria to Comox to Campbell River to the Sunshine Coast and to Ucluelet!!!!
For the communities covered, go here http://avicc.ca/about-the-avicc/avicc-members-2/
Being a GE free zone means that citizens have said no to genetically engineered crops. A resolution is not a bylaw, but it makes everyone understand the level of opposition to GE crops.
Thanks and congratulations to all the local activists involved in this amazing victory for sustainable agriculture.
