Governor Kitzhaber, are you listening???

"ZERO GMO CONTAMINATION TOLERANCE: Western Australia Organic Association rejects application to allow 0.9% GM contamination in Australian organics. Leesa Caldwell, President of the Organic Association of WA, said in making the ruling that common sense had prevailed and the integrity of organics in Australia could remain highly respected and world-class. “The organic sector should not be made the scapegoat for a failure to segregate GM crops from non-GM crops,” she said.

"We completely agree with that. In Europe and under our Non-GMO Project Verified label, there is a GMO contamination allowance of up to 0.9%. It would be best if GMO producers could keep their pollution out of the rest of the food supply. They can't seem to do that, so many countries have the contamination allowance as part of a "co-existence" regime. We applaud the Western Australia Organic Association for standing strong with their organic integrity, rather than bending to the will of the agrichemical corporations. What do you think?
