I have read much about this since starting the thread and from what I can gather it is that Canada and Mexico do not label the country of origin while the US does.

Why would it make Mexican and Canadian meat more expensive?

It means stop foreign aid and screw them
Made in USA stickers is not illegal. Though if they press the case, Monsanto will sue everyone with a Non-GMO tag worldwide.
This is a fight about "labeling" that we don't want them to win.
I for one like "country of origin" labels. I don't want to eat Chinese poison laced crap.
Country of origin is how I shop........Made in China.....Keep looking I do not want cheaply made slave labor chemical laced crap. I do not want to eat anything coming out of Mexico.....Dirty nasty place with sub par health standards. If Canada was smart they would just slap a made up north sticker on it and consumers like me would buy it up.
I want to see that tag.
We’ll only agree to the planting of GM crops, the release of other types of GM organism, or the marketing of GM food or feed products, if a robust risk assessment indicates that it is safe for people and the environment. GM product applications should be assessed for safety on a case-by-case basis, taking full account of the scientific evidence.
We’ll ensure consumers are able to exercise choice through clear GM labelling rules and the provision of suitable information, and will listen to public views about the development and use of the technology.
