October 12th is one of the busiest grocery shopping days of the year and the Mid Island Council of Canadians will be leafleting at major grocery stores starting at 10am and then following the march from Country Club at noon. Our leaflets request that local grocery stores provide labelled shelf space for products that are GMO free so consumers can make informed decisions about what they feed themselves and their families. If you would like to join the leafleting action please contact Paul by email for details.
