A meat tax is absurd
Here we go again. The corporate media propaganda machine is at it again testing the waters to raises taxes again. The Vancouver Sun is reporting that "A movement blending animal-rights and environmental concerns is pushing for a “sin tax” on meat, not unlike levies designed to discourage tobacco use or fossil fuel consumption."
Bloody Hell. Politicians are gluttons. They stay awake at night trying to think up new ways to raises taxes. This is just another con. Since when is eating meat a sin? Well vegans dont eat meat. So? That's their right. They don't have the right to force their alternative lifestyle on anyone else. Alberta has a thriving beef industry. Who's side is the government on?
Shawn Storey from Surrey wrote into the Vancouver Province and said PETA should just mind their own business and stay out of ours. Nobody likes religion forced on them.
