The Pacific Northwest is key as it hosts some of the leading global research on GE trees. This includes research on GE poplar trees conducted at the University of British Columbia. The first GM fruit tree in Canada – a GM non-browning apple – was also approved and planted this year.
Join us to discuss the dangers of GE trees.
Organized by the Global Justice Ecology Project, Northwest Resistance Against Genetic Engineering, the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network (CBAN), the Society for a GE Free BC, and the UVic Environmental Studies Student Association.
