Two important stories about seed and Monsanto 20.6.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Food & Health For decades, pockets of resistance around the world have been tracking and educating general publics about farmers' right to seed and the importance of not allowing corporations to patent seed or to manipulate genetic material for pure speculation and gain. Behind most of these stories of resistance has been the far-reaching control exercised by corporate giant Monsanto, particularly when it comes to demanding royalties on seed (harken back to Percy Schmeiser ) and modifying seed to be resistant to glysophate, a chemical pesticide it produces and sells under the brand of Roundup. Yes, we have all heard it said: Roundup Ready! Catchy and scary at the same time. This week two stories once again are showing how carelessness in food production and a lax regulatory framework, as well as popular pressure and resistance on food issues, can have dramatic results. These stories run deep. Canadian Biotechnology Action Network (CBAN) has been monitoring the regulatory climate around genetically ...

Often, particularly on smaller family farms, the monetary rewards are nowhere near what a regular urban salary provides. There are lots of reasons why the family farm has been disappearing over the past several decades. (Check out some of my previous columns for details about the issue of land concentration.) Suffice to say, that for many reasons, among them the loss of family farmers and the ever-increasing numbers of factory farms, Canadian agricultural production just wouldn't happen without farm workers. And while the majority of those farm workers are domestic, there are ever-increasing numbers of foreign migrant workers. Many come to work on labour intensive agricultural operations that produce fruit and vegetables in Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba and British Columbia. In fact, 33 per cent of vegetable and fruit farm workers are foreign workers. Others come to work on cattle operations and in large ...
