GM Crop approved

The Australian government has just approved the first genetically modified (GM) food crop - canola. I think that the GM crop debate should have been thrown open to a referendum, or at the very least, a decision by all the farmers that may be affected. I'm appalled that this hasn't made a larger and louder impact in the news. Even though some states have or are planning moratoriums for a couple of years, contamination of non-GM crops can occur as 'trials' are allowed Australia wide. Stupid......
