If safe, why not label GMOs?

At the suggestion of Robert Wager of VIU, I did check my sources, one of them being Dr. David Suzuki on YouTube.

At the suggestion of Robert Wager of VIU (The NEWS, Dec. 11), I did check my sources, one of them being Dr. David Suzuki on YouTube (CBC interview on GMOs).

David Suzuki is, by profession, a geneticist at a world class university (UBC) for some 40 years and respected scientist around the world. He has practised the science that is the basis of GMOs. I would encourage your readers to Google and spend five minutes listening to Suzuki and then make up their minds on who to believe, Suzuki or Wager.

If your readers have about an hour to spend to explore this topic further I would recommend a documentary The World According to Monsanto.

And finally, I would ask Wager: If GMOs are that safe, why do the governments of Canada and the U.S. refuse to label foods that contain GMOs so that consumers can make informed choices?

It is mega dollars and that is all it is about.
