Canada’s most boring cabinet minister, Jane Philpott, has announced changes to the Canada Food Guide. Except she also talked about changing food transportation and distribution and marketing. Watch, I’ll show you her statement.
To a leftist activist like Philpott, health is the doorway to everything — to nationalizing whole swaths of the economy. That’s what Obamacare did. But we already have a form of Obamacare in Canada, so this is the next step.
She’s already telegraphing that she intends to treat many food items like cigarettes: Warning labels on foods she doesn’t like. And more taxes, regulations, fines and red tape for farmers and food manufacturers.
Philpott knows nothing about how food is grown or processed or sold. She just knows that she’s a doctor, so she wants to treat the entire population like we’re her patients.
And she’s a liberal, so she wants to treat the entire country’s population like were idiots.
Maybe while we’re at it, that hypocrite Justin Trudeau can tell us how how he can call for the banning of candy bars but for the legalization of marijuana at the same time...
