Sugary drink tax

Originally put out as a deterrant to drinking pop or sodas but was it really? I think we all knew it was a tax grab.

Haha, at least someone figured out if you're taxing sugary drinks more than the diets, you're screwing over a higher percentage of low income people according to the stats, and people of of colour as the article mentions. And I hardly doubt that was the original intention of this tax.

But unlike the initial plan, the new proposal would cover not only sugary drinks but all sweetened beverages, including diet drinks — beverages with noncaloric sweeteners.

And the tax on distributors would be 1.75 cents rather than 2 cents per ounce.

The changes were recommendations that emerged when staff from the mayor’s office and the office of Councilmember Tim Burgess studied disparate impacts the tax could have on people with low incomes and on people of color, according to Murray.

Of course its a tax grab

They were talking about it in Montreal for a while but if I remember correctly..Montreal does not have the powers to do it....

I'm glad because I don't need another reason to hate that F.F. of a mayor
