Our goal: That the Government of Canada introduce a levy on manufacturers of sugary drinks to reduce consumption and to partially recover related health care costs. The proceeds of a sugary drink levy on manufacturers should be used to fund healthy living initiatives including better public awareness of the harms of sugary drinks
