Obesity is a problem and too many Canadians are overweight, but the latest report from the Senate calling for taxes and bans, is not the way to go no matter what the activists say.
I agree with some of the Senate report and there are some recommendations that are worth looking at.
But taxes, bans and more nanny state, never work.
And, the report relies on a fallacy that says it’s more expensive to feed children a healthy diet. This simply isn’t true but seems to be an idea pushed by those in favour of higher taxes on foods they don’t like.
