Pooping Canadian Geese May Have Spread Monsanto GMO Seeds

pooping geeseMonsanto’s GMO lifeforms have a habit of mysteriously popping up in places where they were not expected to be found.

In the case of Canada, where GMO wheat is not approved, geese may have caused the crop’s escape from a controlled experimental site, the Ottawa Citizen reports:

Canada geese may have spread seeds of genetically modified wheat grown at the Central Experimental Farm, documents from Agriculture Canada show.

The fear is that these geese may have left poop with living GM wheat seeds that could allow GM wheat to spread outside the controlled field. The issue blew up in 2012, taking the Agriculture Canada department by surprise.

GM wheat is not approved in Canada. Many growers, including the Canadian Wheat Board, strongly oppose it, saying that growing GM wheat will make all Canadian wheat harder to sell in Europe and Asia. And the last thing any grower wants is to have ordinary wheat crops accidentally mixed with the GM varieties.

This also happened last month in Oregon, where a farmer discovered transgenic wheat growing on his land. He had never planted any and the source remains unknown, but Japan and South Korean briefly banned U.S. wheat imports.

    Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson will shortly introduce a bill banning all life cycle functions not in conformity with the 2013 Monsanto Protection Act anywhere on earth, in accordance with World Trade Organization guidelines. Henceforth, all life forms are expressly forbidden from:

    1.) Independently developing immunity to any bacteria, virus or chemical agent currently or prospectively marketed to the biomedical or agricultural markets

    2.) Diverting ambient airstream flows (i.e., “weather fronts”), advertently or inadvertently, by the performance of any physical operation (e.g., a butterfly flapping its wings) which has not received explicit prior written approval from Monsanto at least 30 days but no longer than 60 days.

    3.) Introducing any potentially bioreactive substance into an environment where licensed Monsanto products may potentially be consumed, used, stored or be temporarily located in the course of any activity ancilliary to Monsanto’s commercial purpose without first paying the required minimum licensing fee as indicated in subsection c(32)[a]viii-xxiii, and indexed for inflation and normal acceleration of profit margins.

    Yeah. That oughtta do it.
