“Pig Rally: Stop UofG’s ‘Enviropig TM ‘”

Wednesday, February 9, 12:30 – 1:00 pm, The Cannon, University of Guelph  ( north side of U of G University Centre)

The University of Guelph will profit financially from commercializing the hugely controversial GE pig trademarked “Enviropig”.
What happens when a public university fights to bring a product to market?

The university has requested approval from Health Canada but:

- There is no transparency in GE regulation and there has never been a democratic public debate.

- There is no GE food labeling to give consumers a choice.

- The GE pig could destroy the domestic and global markets for hog farmers, while providing few or no benefits to farmers.

Vegetarians, vegans and meat-eaters unite! Let’s stop this genetically modified pig and save animals, and humans, from GM experiments!

If the GM pig is approved, the doors will open to all kinds of GM animals including a GM salmon that will threaten wild salmon. Make your voices heard at this critical time!

Rally presented by: The Big Carrot, Canadian Biotechnology Action Network, Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario, Guelph PIRG, National Farmers Union Ontario,Gueph Chapter-Council of Canadians.
