What are you feeding your kids?

Forum on genetically modified foods takes place Thursday in Surrey

The Coalition for a GE Free Surrey, GMO Free Langley and the Council of Canadians, Surrey-Langley-White Rock chapter are hosting a community forum on genetically modified food on June 5 from 7-9 p.m. at Northwood United Church, 8855 156 St.

What Are You Feeding Your Kids will be hosted by Dr. Thierry Vrain, an expert on genetically engineered foods and an organic farmer on Vancouver Island.

Vrain was a genetic engineer and scientist in agricultural research who headed the Canadian government’s biotechnology department.

He will explain the hopes for the technology 25 years ago, and the recent scientific evidence that counters the claims.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and admission is by donation.
