    Thank you for the report. It is disappointing to hear that Canada is so behind the rest of the world in this regard. I hope things improve soon.

    So glad you’re around. I would like to see a much more clearly labelled marketplace with all fish & meat being labelled. eg. not just Canadian grain fed but that it says fed NON-GMO seed and not just farm-raised meat and also wild-caught salmon but also that it’s been verified. If not, “BUYER BEWARE” still applies in my eyes.
