A sugar tax is one step closer to coming to Canada. Philadelphia just became the first big city in the states to introduce a tax on pop or “soda” as they call it south of the boarder. It won’t be in effect until January 1st and will add additional 1.5 cents per ounce.
I wonder if that could be on its way to Barrie. I always hear stories about how diabetes is on the rise and how those with obesity can impact healthcare. Maybe this could help. Although I see how much tax is on cigarettes and I still see people smoking everywhere.
