Copy + paste

To: The Federal Minister of Agriculture, The Honorable Mr. Andy Mitchell,

Monsanto has applied to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to register a genetically modified Roundup Ready alfalfa in Canada.

I object to the introduction of plants carrying genes from other species without extremely thorough study. I also strongly disagree with this proposed introduction because of the damage it may do to markets for Canadian organic products.

Please thoroughly study environmental damage, and take take possible market damage into account, before you consider introduction of Roundup Ready alfalfa, as well as the introduction of other GM crops.
