It was closer, much closer, than many had expected. A bill in Canada's House of Commons calling for labelling of GM content in foods was defeated Wednesday by a tally of 126-91. The bill - championed by Liberal backbencher Charles Caccia - called for mandatory labelling of foods with higher than 1% GM content. As a private members motion, it was a long shot to be introduced into parliamentary business, but attracted enough support across party lines to make it out of committee.
