Abstract

Two recent events involving genetically modified organisms (GMOs) illustrate the government’s current sensitivity to GMO issues.

Although they are not directly related, both events point to delicate handling of novel food chain products and a growing acceptance of the current Canadian regulatory model for GMOs. This is surprising as the regulatory model is considered by many as confusing at best.

Keywords: transgenics, food, staking, regulation, genetically modified
