"Is Joe Cummins, from the University of Western Ontario, trying to have
me silenced or fired because I disagree with his scientific opinion!
(see his email below)"

The article below from GM watch deals with a peculiar situation. A
Canadian bureaucrat from Canada poses as an "Irish Lad" to
comment on approval of GM potatoes in Ireland. Nowhere does he mention
that he is in the "red meat" genetics division of the Canadian
Government Ministry. Canadian Bureaucrats do not normally provide expert
opinion unless they have the direct permission from a Minister or an
Assistant Deputy Minister (ADM). The Ministry seems to be engaging in
international funny business.
In reply to Shane Morris: I made clear that that Shane Morris is an
obedient public servant (bureaucrat). He obediently follows the wishes
and desires of his superiors in the Ministry of Agriculture. Would
Hitler have fired Adolph Eichmann for doing his job as he was ordered?
Imputing motive is a risky business, but surely Shane should realize
that that I believe that if anybody should be fired it should be the
ADM and not obedient Shane.
