Canadian and U.S. farm groups unite on transgenic wheat ban

The National Farmers Union of Canada and the National Family Farm Coalition announced today an effort to stop the introduction of transgenic wheat in North America.
“Banning GM wheat is crucial to the survival of the North American farmers who grow wheat,” said Terry Boehm, a wheat producer from Allan, Saskatchewan and an NFU Board member. “We export most of our wheat and our foreign buyers have made it perfectly clear that they want nothing to do with genetically modified food.”
