Canada… the future of food is in your hands
With over 60 countries around the world banning, restricting, or labeling GMOs—including the entire European Union—Rachel Parent is very concerned about public safety and the lack of transparency in our government over genetically engineered food and our health.
Help Us Get Rona Ambrose to Respond
Rachel has contacted Ms. Ambrose many times (including two couriered letters) asking for a meeting to share peer-reviewed scientific research about the dangers of genetically engineered food, with the goal of labeling all foods that contain GMOs. But Rona refuses to respond… so we need your help:

Here’s what to say…
(feel free to shorten, change, or elaborate as you prefer):
Ms. Ambrose, as a Canadian citizen concerned about my health, (the health of my family), and the health of all of our citizens, I am contacting you to request that you meet with Rachel Parent, founder of Kids Right to Know, on the topic of genetically engineered food.
Like Rachel, I am concerned about the safety, lack of independent testing, and lack of public transparency surrounding GMOs. With over 60 countries around the world banning, restricting, and labeling GMOs—including the entire European Union—I firmly believe it is your responsibility bring mandatory GMO Labeling to Canada. Please show all of us that you care: schedule a meeting with Rachel Parent of Kids Right to Know.
The Kids Right To Know, “GMO Just Label It! Campaign” is founded on the belief that we have the “Right to Know” what’s in our food, helping to create mass awareness about the risks of GMOs and to push for their mandatory labeling. Funds received will help with the expenses of printing, videos, touring and GMO awareness, for better health and to help save the environment.

Thank you for visiting! This blog was inspired to educate youth in informing youth about food, nutrition, health, environmental and social issues affecting us all today. Mostly hoping to educate about the importance of understanding, loving and respecting our precious soil, water and seeds. We are so blessed in Canada, to have beautiful fertile land and mostly clean sparkling water- allowing us to grow plenty of healthy foods and healing herbs.
We are so lucky to have advancements in farm production and distribution.
But I hope that, in this age of everything becoming faster, better, and more advanced, we don’t forget about nature.
~ I hope we don’t value wealth over health ~ and that we consider the true cost of our advancements to the environment, eco system and to our health. As a teen, I’m very concerned about my future and the future of our planet.
I believe that we have to slow down a bit and go back to our roots of sustainable farming, crop diversity and minimized use of harmful Herbicides and pesticides, the way it’s been done for thousands of years.
I strongly belief that we need to fight for our seed freedom, our environment and our basic human right to choose healthy food.
So I encourage everyone, especially the youth to learn more about the food we eat and how it is produced.
“Always leave the earth better than you found it “
Thank you for caring
