When Rachel Parent debated Kevin O'Leary from Dragon's Den on the
Lang & O'Leary Exchange about GMOs in July, she had no idea she'd
become a YouTube star, but 2 million views later, she is. She'll be
speaking this Saturday, at March Against Monsanto, an event
simultaneously taking place in more than 400 cities and involving
millions of people. Rachel, who recently spoke to 20,000 teens at We
Day, will take the stage on Saturday, October 12 at approximately
2:30pm; the event starts at 2pm and is at Queen's Park.

About Rachel Parent:  
At 12, Rachel began researching a school project and became alarmed
by what she learned about GMOs. When CBC's Kevin O'Leary famously
suggested on the Lang and O'Leary Exchange that people who stand
against GMOs should "stop eating" so we can "get rid of them," Parent
became outraged, and challenged him to a debate during one of her
events. It was posted on YouTube, and hundreds of people contacted
CBC requesting that O'Leary accept the challenge. A Toronto high
school student, she is now the veteran of many television, radio and
online interviews, and has been a keynote speaker at a variety of
rallies and events, including March Against Monsanto and WE Day. She
is part of the United Nations Youth Leaders Educational Program which
educates and motivates youth globally.

the public, especially other children, about GMOs.
