CALLS TO ACTION - protect our rights as farmers, your rights as consumers
The Right to Choose Your Own Food - Support farmer and raw milk advocate Michael Schmidt in his fight for food sovereignty. Schmidt is the main advocate for access to raw milk in Ontario and has been the target of prosecution and harassment for many years.
Stop GM-Alfalfa (Canadian Biotechnology Action Network campaign) - Alfalfa growers do not need or want genetically-modified (GM) alfalfa and have been trying to stop it for at least five years. Because alfalfa is a perennial crop pollinated by bees, GM contamination is inevitable. GM alfalfa was approved in Canada in 2005 but still needs to go through one more step before it can be legally sold as seed in Canada. Alfalfa is used as high-protein feed for animals like dairy cows, beef cattle, lambs, poultry and pigs and is also used to build up nutrients in the soil, making it particularly important for organic farming (CBAN)
