'Better berries' should not have any connections to GMOs

Editor: I noted your article on “Building Better Berries,” (The Times, Jan. 28).  I am hoping that this does not encourage GMOs, which the people of Canada have been fighting.

Monsanto is a particularly high-profile company in the U.S. that has been imposing their will on the farmers of that country and driving others out of business.  I buy very little imported foods from the U.S. as a result.

We do not know the long-term effects of these genetically modified foods and do not want to be the guinea pigs in Canada as well.

Doreen Brown,
