Takes the Canadian Biotechnology Strategy to tak for its claim to support sustainable development. Proposes a set of criteria for truly sustainable development, and evaluates the CBS in light of these criteria by focusing on the CBS's claims relating to agricultural biotechnology and bioengineered foods. Demonstrates that the risks of bioengineered foods are ignored by the CBS in its inflated listing of potential benefits.
