          Media Release
          In September, Radio Canada revealed that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) had circulated a summary of an important regulatory proposal via a document that was produced on a computer

          The revelation that a document summarizing the CFIA’s regulatory proposal was produced on a computer owned by Jennifer Hubert, Director General, Plant Biotechnology, CropLife Canada, is a wake-up call regarding CFIA’s improper collaboration with CropLife and its sister lobby groups, Seeds Canada and the Canada Grains Council. The CFIA shows a long-standing pattern of deference to the regulated parties which has caused us to lose confidence in the CFIA’s ability to protect the public interest. We therefore ask that the President of the CFIA be replaced with a new leader who will uphold an unwavering commitment to protecting the interests of Canadians, our food and our environment in order to restore the CFIA’s reputation and credibility.

          Thank you for reassuring the organic sector that you will guarantee traceability of all genetically engineered products (genetically modified organisms or GMOs), to protect the integrity of the Canada Organic Standards and the future of organic food and farming in Canada. We reiterate that voluntary disclosure of information by product developers, as proposed by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency in current regulatory guidance drafts, would not be reliable. Voluntary reporting would put many farmers, food businesses, and markets at risk. It would also engender public mistrust in the food system and government regulation thereof.

          Join the National Farmers Union and strengthen our campaign for Canada to adopt a truly?farmer-friendly seed law?that balances the interests of the public, farmers and plant breeders in a manner accepted by the Canadian public.
          The National Farmers Union strongly supports Canada’s supply management system as an important institution of food sovereignty. Supply management is a unique Canadian institution that helps us avoid wide fluctuations in supply and prices, without requiring massive government subsidies to support farmers’ incomes in these sectors.

          About The National Farmers Union

          The National Farmers Union is a direct-membership voluntary organization made up of Canadian farm families who share common goals. It is the only farm organization incorporated through an Act of Parliament.

          NFU members believe that the problems facing farmers are common problems, and that farmers producing diverse products must work together to advance effective solutions. The NFU works toward the development of economic and social policies that will maintain the family farm as the primary food-producing unit in Canada.
