Canada: British Columbian apple growers worry over GM

Some growers in the Okanangan region of British Columbia are worried by the introduction of genetically modified crops.

Summerland orchardist Joe Sardinha said, “I’m not concerned about the science behind it; I’m not a scientist. From my standpoint as a producer, I’m concerned that, with genetic modification, consumers could easily feel that their pristine apple suddenly has a component that they’re not confident in.”
