Bill C-18 delayed

The bill that will bring in UPOV ’91 to Canada has reached its second reading in the house, but will be delayed until the Fall, when Parliament resumes. This will leave more time for farmers and the public to weight the consequences of more stringent seed protection from seed companies in the face of drastic public cutbacks over public funding to crop development and strong push towards privatization of seed.
