February 13, 2015. Ottawa. The Canadian Biotechnology Action Network (CBAN)
and the Society for a GE Free BC are raising the alarm after learning that
the US government has approved the first genetically modified (GM) apple.
“The Canadian market needs to remain closed to this GM apple,” said Lucy
Sharratt of CBAN. “Health Canada should not approve this apple. Consumers
and farmers simply don’t want it on the market.”
