I find I must write to condemn Tom Grant for his outburst against the GE-Watch presentation at Comox council.
As reported, Grant uses his sister as his sole reference point. How scientific is that?
We are very lucky in the Comox Valley that Dr. Thierry Vrain has moved here and his Innisfree Farm is a living example of how to produce locally grown GE-free foods.
We are also lucky that the GE-Watch local group has been doing research and educating the community for years about such things as how the huge corporate Monsanto is buying up the world’s supply of seeds and forcing the world to become the buyer of their products — at great profit to Monsanto, and a great loss to us, the consumers.
It is disrespectful of Tom Grant to disallow the credence of educated presenters to a council meeting.
Let us hope that the other municipal councillors and regional district representatives will be more educated than Tom Grant and vote the right way!
