A Message of Hope, Light and Love

At this time of reflection and resolution, we offer you a message of Hope, Light and Love.  We believe this trinity is quite powerful.

Powerful in the spiritual sense, as in “Hope springs eternal” “Light vanquishes darkness” “… and the greatest of these is Love”.

Also powerful strategically, when viewed in a certain way. Here is our thinking:

Consider Hope as goal-setting. A hope for world peace implies a goal “for something” .
Consider Light as the plan or the truth. It sets out the path for how to best get to the goal.
Consider Love as the power that fuels …Read More

SAFE FOOD MATTERS SUES AGAIN ON GLYPHOSATE

November 2, 2022.  Safe Food Matters Inc. has launched its second lawsuit against Health Canada over its 2017 re-registration of glyphosate. It claims Health Canada, through the Pest Management Regulatory Agency, acted unreasonably and unfairly when on September 29, 2022 it rejected the group’s objections for the second time.

Safe Food Matters initially sued PMRA in 2019, lost in federal court, then appealed.  The appeal was successful and on February 2, 2022, the Federal Court of Appeal directed PMRA to reconsider the objections, and to follow the Guidance of the Court when doing so.
