GMO corn Canada and U.S. bully Mexico to use GMO corn due to biotech lobby groups

Why Mexico’s 2023 ban on GM corn is the right move

At the request of the United States and Canadian governments, a trade dispute panel has rescinded an invitation to Canadian non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to submit official comments in the dispute under the Canada-U.S.-Mexico Trade Agreement (CUSMA) over Mexico’s phase-out of genetically engineered (genetically modified or GM) corn. This excluded the participation from our own Trade Justice Group of the Northumberland Chapter and the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network (CBAN).

Prevented from providing the research and arguments directly to the dispute panel, the Trade Justice Group of the Northumberland Chapter put together this reader-friendly breakdown of the GM corn dispute between Mexico and the U.S. Read more to learn about the context within which the dispute arises, the role Canada plays, scientific evidence behind each side’s claims, and broader implications of the Mexico Corn Law and attempts to dispute it.
