Documents received via Access to Information show that the biotechnology and pesticide industry lobby group CropLife Canada worked in a joint committee with federal government departments called the “Tiger Team” to design new regulatory guidance on genetically engineered foods and crops (genetically modified organisms or GMOs). The new guidance removes government oversight, including government safety assessments, from many new GMOs.

Radio-Canada reports that CropLife Canada steered changes to regulatory guidance on GMOs through a corporate-government committee called the “Tiger Team” that met frequently and discussed regulatory proposals.
