In Advance

Operative

BE IT RESOLVED that the Green Party of Canada seeks to introduce legislation that will require all steps of the production process that use genetic engineering of any description to create any substance, especially those intended for human consumption, to be clearly labeled as such. Moreover, until the dangers and accidents inherent in this incredibly powerful, unprecedented technology are better understood both by science and society, we ask for a UN moratorium on ecosystem release of any CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats) gene-drive organism, regardless of the reason.
