Right to know where food comes from

I, as a consumer, have the right to know how my food is grown, where it comes from and whether it has been genetically modified.

I would like to ask Lorne Hepworth, President, CropLife Canada, one simple question regarding his glowing comments on GM food and not banning them.

If they are so fabulous then why have GM food producers fought so strenuously to keep the public from knowing which foods are GM produced?
