Girl asks Guides to live by group’s own motto

Wednesday, 19 June 2013 - 4:00pm
Maya Fischer believes in the Girl Guide motto. She knows it by heart: I promise to do my best, to be true to myself, my beliefs and Canada; I will take action for a better world.
Now, the nine-year-old Saanich resident is asking the Girl Guides of Canada to follow it too — by removing GMOs from Guide Guide cookies. Fischer might be one of Victoria’s youngest people to speak out about genetically modified food, but her petition on Change.org, which started just two weeks ago, has already gained 795 signatures.
