Found this today,  thought I would pass it on for the anti GM growers.

2 seed houses in Canada supplying.  GM potatoes for home growers.

The first is Dominion Seed House in Ontario. In their 1999 catalogue, they
listed 3 varieties of New Leaf Potatoes. Interestingly enough, they never
mention the words "genetically engineered" in the description, just that
these varieties are "protected from attack by all stages of the potato
beetle through the introduction of a gene from Bacillus thuringiensis var.

The other company was T&T Seeds from Manitoba. I don't have one of their
catalogues around to check if they're still carrying it. They did in 1999.
