Monsanto Company is one of the world’s leading agro-chemical companies. With its wealth and power, it seemed impossible for anyone to take this company to court and win, much less a middle class canola farmer from Canada. Percy Schmeiser was that farmer. He was the first farmer ever to win a law suit against this multinational giant. The landmark case, which went before the Federal Court of Canada, attracted international attention because it demonstrated the power of a single farmer. Since then, Mr. Schmeiser has been traveling around the world to lecture about his experience speaking to farmers, the public as well as government leaders about this case. He is strongly opposed to genetically modified crops for very practical reasons.
Monsanto still maintains that Mr. Schmeiser violated their patent and continues to attack his credibility. In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to activist, Percy Schmeiser as he discusses in detail, this landmark victory law suit. Stay tuned!
