I hope that you are successful. I live in the U.S., so I am unfortunately unable to vote on this.

The final parliamentary debate on GM food labelling bill C-291 has been rescheduled for May 10th. MPs will now vote on this private member's bill on May 17th. If you're Canadian, you still have time to tell your MP to vote "YES." You can do that here @ www.cban.ca/labelling or you can find your MP by logging in @ www.parl.gc.ca
