No way! First off, the money is not going to anything important in the places it is getting taxed to. Second, sugar is the last thing that should be taxed. If anything should be taxed, it should be meats. I think that it would put a huge motion in place that could allow for meat producers to go antibiotics free for their meet as well as cage free in doing so. That would be a much beneficial tax as taxing sugar isn't benefiting us as a society. Sugar is not anymore harmful than anything else.
People may say sugar can give you diabetes and put you at risk for a heart attack but that is if it is done in excess on a daily basis. If anything is done excessively then it is harmful. Even people die yearly from drinking too much water. Does that mean that water should be taxed as well?
It really shows that the liberal government wants to dethrone specific companies that do not support their campaigns and with that they try to implement ridiculous legislature like a "sugar tax" that is in no way benefitting the people!
