Why let science get in the way of a national food guide when money and lobbyists can?

The food Guide is a guide. No one is forcing you what to eat it's a health recommendation. Jeez the us vs them strategy really falls flat here.

The food guide isn't law... it's a GUIDE.

More for the dairy cartel. "Drink milk, drink milk" -Scheer

Our last food guide was designed for agricultural profits and was contradictory to the majority of modern research (Then & Now). The new food guide reduces dairy & carbs, things we know needs to be moderated in our diets.

This is pure politically driven motive here. The new food guide is no doubt healthier no questions asked. Ridiculous.

Sorry not all that helpful as politics go. Good luck

It looks like Scheer is a puppet for the dairy cartel of Quebec that got filthy rich by disallowing competitors to sell their products in the same market allowing them to set their own prices. MAXIME BERNIER is apparently the only sane prospect for PM with Canadian values before the globalists agenda.😉🍻

This guy can’t raise his kid properly, how could he run a country. His kid is running him just like the special interest groups will run him, he’s weak

When you say there wasn't consultation, you mean the industry associations you are trying to appease didn't get to directly lobby the experts who created the guide. The people consulted were the actual scientific experts - not the multi-billion dollar industries t

The food guide does not include McDonald's so all the obesity exploited by corporate big wigs is lacking attention. So Scheer is on the take.

wow. exactly what I was concerned about

The food guide should also reflect carbon foot print of bringing fruits and vegetables as an example into the the country on a year round basis from Mexico or California. How much value is a strawberry that has traveled 5000 miles versus some actually grown and processed in Canada, by Canadians. Where do you stop?

If Cost is an issue, then perhaps Decreasing that Cost should be what informs one's Policy?
