So, do diet drinks find exemption?

Milk has lots of sugar. Will it fall under this tax? What about chocolate milk?

What about making a special tax on cars worth over $800,000. Say $5.00 per day of ownership per year. Just watch Baby Doc Trudeau go ballistic! Trudeau is a well known cheapskate, so definitely he would not agree to this. After all, his Mercedes 250 SL convertible is easily worth a million. Even better would be to add a carbon tax if he wants to sell it. How does $3/kilo. He loves going after anything that makes our lives easier or pleasurable, so why not spread the pain back to him.

It is true that the government doesn’t give a crap about your health. If it did, it would issue a few nice public service announcements and come up with some kind of incentive. No. Everything the Liberal government does will involve your money leaving your pocket for its coffers.This is nothing more than fresh prey in the Liberal government’s never-ending hunt for taxes and power. Why on earth anyone would vote for the Liberals (or the NDP) is completely beyond me.
