The Future of Canadian Food rests in Parliament for one more day!

April: This is only important if you eat. If you don’t eat, it doesn’t matter.

Bill C-474 (“an analysis of potential harm to export markets be conducted before the sale of any new genetically engineered seed is permitted”) protects farmers from losing their crops, their livelihoods and their farms (More links below). As GE seed/crop corporations like Monsanto sweep in and take over every food crop growing in Canada, you, the consumer, will lose ALL choices of what you buy and consume. Including all vegetables.

We as farmers will no longer be able to save seeds. Which means, if we buy them at the inflated costs, YOU will be paying double for your groceries.

However, if you don’t eat, it doesn’t matter.

Below, Tom Rudge is a farmer in the Yukon. I know Tom. He works hard to feed you and I. The Yukon is a GE Free Zone, thanks to many that brought it forward and passed it. That doesn’t mean Tom’s farm is safe. I have included Tom’s letter to Harper. Read it, as it applies to ALL farmers. In 24 hours, we will find out if we have a future or not.

Subject Heading: My future and Bill C-474: Your future too?

The Desire To Eat Healthy Considered a “Mental Disorder”

This blog allows me to say what I want. I posted this on GE Free BC:  http://gefreebc.wordpress.com/2010/08/05/choosing-healthy-foods-now-called-a-mental-disorder/

There is a wider gap of disconnect between the “experts” and those who live through spirit. Growing food and putting your hands in the dirt to create something is an experience like no other. So is having the luxury of eating it all when it’s grown. But lately, perhaps because of the growing numbers of people healing without medication, the “doctors” have found a way to label us and slot us into a disorder. Here’s a saying from “Course In Miracles” that comes to mind, for those that don’t “get” us:

HEAL: “Health is the result of relinquishing all attempts to use the body Lovelessly.”

Perhaps we are not crazy: just more aware of how this Universe works, beyond the mechanical and mindful methodology of science. It is the foundation behind “why” I grow food and work with others to do the same.
