Dear Prime Minister Trudeau,
Bovine growth hormone (BGH) is currently illegal in Canada, keeping this
dangerous product out of our cows, milk and dairy products.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), however, would allow BGH-laced milk and
dairy products from the U.S. to enter the Canadian market.
BGH-injected cows, pushed to yield unnaturally large quantities of milk, suffer
from more stress and a higher incidence of udder infections, reproductive
disorders, swollen legs and premature death.
Canada's ban on BGH is just one of many of our high safety standards that would
be threatened by the TPP.
We urge you to protect the health and safety of Canadians by rejecting the TPP.
