The Government of Canada is taking action to protect species at risk

From coast to coast to coast, nature is at the heart of Canada's national identity. Our rivers, mountains, lakes, and oceans—along with the wildlife species that depend on them—are a natural legacy for all Canadians to discover, enjoy, and preserve.

GM wheat contamination incident a reminder of need for better regulation

the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) released information about an incident in Alberta where a small patch of unapproved genetically modified wheat was discovered. The wheat plants have a glyphosate resistant herbicide tolerance trait that was developed and tested by Monsanto in open-air field plots fifteen to twenty years ago. The nearest test plot site is over 300 kilometers from where the contamination incident was discovered. The exact identity of the wheat is unknown. When field trials were approved the CFIA did not require full genetic characterization of the experimental lines containing the genetic modification. The CFIA does not know, and is unwilling to speculate on how the experimental seed ended up growing on an access road to an oil rig in southern Alberta 14 years after Monsanto withdrew its application for approval of genetically modified wheat.

Letter - NFU urges PM to stand firm in the protection of Canadian supply management.
