Are private interests impacting food and health safety? How is the Canadian government dealing with adverse or critical findings by Health Canada Scientists? How do we ensure a safe food supply for the public?

Shiv Chopra is a Canadian hero. He was guided by science to conclusions that were not politically convenient.
–Dr. David Suzuki.

Dr. Chopra and his colleague's work prevented approval of harmful drugs such as Bovine Growth Hormone, raised early attention to avoidable sources of Mad Cow Disease, questioned the Anthrax scare and warned about the myth of safe and effective vaccines.

His 2009 Corrupt to the Core, an account of how corruption is endangering the public food supply proposes "Five Pillars of Food Safety": to not employ:
Hormones, Antibiotics, Pesticides, Slaughterhouse/Rendered Animal Wastes,
OR Genetically Modified Organisms

All are welcomed to this free public presentation followed by Q&A.
