  1. Much preferred the coverage of this case by Democracy Now. In my opinion CBC journalists were trying to water this story down in favour of Monsanto. We need independent news such as Democracy Now, The Real News, and The Young Turks since, in my opinion, we can't rely and trust mainstream media like CBC, CNN, Fox News.

  2. This is great, great news for America and the food supply. Roundup and glyphosate are all over so many food crops; with the blessing of congress, we are not entitled to know we're eating it. Could be the end of Monsanto.

  3. THIS MONSANTO CRAP/ ROUND UP IS IN ALLMOST EVERY THING YOU EAT IN THE UNITED STATES BREAD ` BEER BREAKFAST CEREAL PASTRY`S //YES YOU NAME IT ///THERE IS ROUND UP IN IT///ALMOST ALL GRAIN IS NOW SPRAYED WITH ROUND UP

  4. I work in agriculture, so I don't want to see Monsanto go (they do a lot to improve agricultural productivity). That said, if the populace sinks Monsanto, I'll enjoy watching you cry about the price of food.
