    TPP: Battles in Canada to preserve its food safety standards.

    This Thursday, former Health Canada senior scientist and whistleblower Dr. Shiv Chopra speaks in Chilliwack about his opposition to the TPP and its threat to public health and food safety.

    Chopra’s talk at the Yarrow Community School is part of a Canada-wide tour to raise awareness about the TPP.

    The agreement, he says, forces open Canada’s door for American milk and dairy products from cows that have been injected with synthetic Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH), an artificial growth hormone developed by Monsanto to increase milk output from dairy cows.

    During previous attempts to introduce rBGH milk into milk supplies in Canada, communities mobilized and prevented the inclusion based on public health concerns. Chopra helped lead this fight.

    “One of the conditions of the TPP is that U.S. dairy farmers will be entitled to market rBGH-induced milk in Canada without labelling the country of origin,” says John Jones, executive director of Canadian Council on Food Sovereignty & Health. “The U.S. is the only developed country allowing the use of rBGH to increase milk production, and under this agreement, the Canadian public will not know which dairy products they are consuming.”
