 World Traveling Food Safety Activists and Educator Rachel Parent Speaks Out at  the Upcoming March Against Monsanto Participating in a Compelling Bee Requiem  TORONTO, May 23, 2014 /CNW/ - Who better to bring the message home about the  growing threats of GMOs than the girl who slayed the dragon? Since Rachel  Parent's debate with Kevin O'Leary on CBC's Lang and O'Leary Exchange, she's  become a YouTube star, appeared in a long list of television shows, radio  shows and magazines, began writing for the Huffington Post Blog, speaking in  universities, trade shows, film festivals and conferences, the likes of which  have taken her as far as Australia and back.  If there's anyone left in Toronto who hasn't been able to wrap their heads  around the effects of GMOs, this event will probably do the trick.  Representing the alarming spike in bee deaths, a requiem for the bees will be  performed at Queen's Park, complete with coffin and pallbearers. Here, Rachel,  along with Sierra Club Canada's Director, John Bennet will be speaking  briefly. Immediately following will be the March Against Monsanto, which will  end up at Christie Pits Park.
