Corporate Tyranny in our Food
Do we want big corporations like Monsanto ruling our food and land? Monsanto already hold a key FDA position in the US. Hundreds of thousands of deaths in India have been attributed to Monsanto. Mutated crops are being found in countries who have rejected the sterile genetically modified round up ready patented crops of Monsanto.

Democracy and Freedom of Speech are no longer Canadian Standards

that a dual marketing system would be "as wrong as it is un-Canadian"
and could harm the ability of Western Canadian farmers "to deliver the
world-class grain for which we are known." That same month, the Board was faced with a “gag order” from the federal government, which was later found to be unconstitutional by the federal court." Source.

They did it in the US and India and will do it here. Entire countries are standing up against this abomination, but our "leader" is corporate shill as they have proven time and time again.
