The idea of taxing sugary drinks and using that money to make healthy food more affordable, has been around for a long time. It’s been tried and has failed but that won’t stop progressives with an agenda from trying again because for them, it’s about control.
It’s easy to find politicians who will go along with the idea because it’s a way to take more of your money and appear to be doing something good.

The Heart and Stroke Foundation continues to push the myth that it’s cheaper to eat processed, pre-packaged food than it is to eat healthy, home-cooked meals but cause and effect can be tricky things to prove.
They haven't made their case but that doesn’t mean they won’t be able to pick your pockets through the Liberal government to fund their agenda.
