Simply put, Lynn wants to keep Western Australia free from genetically modified organisms in the ecosystems and food supply.
Lynn would like to uphold a moratorium on growing commercial crops of genetically modified organisms because of the risk of:
Lynn supports organisations declaring that they will not use products which contain genetically modified ingredients.
Lynn encourages local governments in the city and in regional Western Australia to declare their boundaries to be GMO-free zones.
The Greens and Lynn oppose plant and transgenic animal genetic engineering and the release into the environment of genetically engineered micro-organisms, because of the failure of the genetic engineering industry to demonstrate that it is operating safely and ethically in these areas.
Genetic engineering offers the potential for enormous good and enormous harm and therefore should be treated with caution.
Everyone has a right to know if foods contain any ingredients made using GM techniques, through the comprehensive labelling of those products.
