64-198

Sad day in Canada.

Bill C-283 (to put calories on menus) voted down in the House 64-198.

Guess the government prefers watching the $11 billion dollars currently lost yearly to weight related illness grow rather than empower Canadians with more information to help guide their choices.

To see the Center for Science in the Public Interest's statement on this sadly unsurprising outcome, click here.

  1. Dr. Freedhoff,
    Is there a way I can review the debate/vote online?

  2. Hey Andrew,

    Go to the LEGISLinfo site at:

    http://www.parl.gc.ca/LEGISINFO/index.asp?Language=E

    and type C-283 into the search engine and you'll be able to find both debates and the vote in the house.

    Regards,
    Yoni
