Mike, as canola can be fertilized by wind-blown pollen, one Monsanto canola plant in an upwind field could potentially contaminate an entire crop like the Schmeizers' in one season. Once you add whole crops of Monstanto canola plants to the area, and add more growing seasons where the plants unwittingly grown from the first contaminated seeds contaminate others in the Schmeizers' stock, the probability of that level of contamination becomes a certainty. It's a shame the Canadian courts didn't seek opinions from credible biologists or ecologists instead of corporate lawyers.
