To the Honourable the Legislative Assembly of the Province of British Columbia, in Legislature Assembled:

The petition of the undersigned, residents of the province of British Columbia, states that:

A small BC company called Okanagan Specialty Fruits is asking the federal government to approve a genetically modified (GM, also called genetically engineered) “non-­browning” apple.

Contamination from GM apples threatens the future of our apples, and the farmers who grow them. A 2012 consumer survey, commissioned by the BC Fruit Growers Association, found that 69% of Canadians don’t want the GM apple.

Your petitioners respectfully request that the Honourable House take urgent action to halt commercial introduction of the genetically modified apple.
