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. This is where Toronto's first GMO-Free Festival 
and Farmers Market will take place and where Rachel will be speaking again 
more extensively.
