Percy Schmeiser

In Alberta, Canada, Monsanto was experimenting with new strains of genetically modified canola (an oil seed). Pollen drifted to a neighbour’s field contaminating his organic strains. Monsanto then abused its power and successfully sued the farmer, Percy Schmeiser, for stealing their patented genetic materials. This is a bit like man who lets his dog roam the neighbourhood inseminating females, then claiming he owns all the puppies. It seems to me, it was Monsanto hurting Mr. Schmeiser, not the reverse. It is disgraceful that the legal system sided with Monsanto. It makes so sense unless you presume Monsanto bribed the necessary officials.
