Conservatives 'declaring war on Canada Food Guide' like they did on long-form census, Trudeau says - 2019-07-18
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is defending his government's update to the Canada Food Guide in the wake of attacks by Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer who suggested the changes were riddled with "bias" and driven by "ideology."
"The Canada Food Guide is based on evidence, based on science, based on research," Trudeau told reporters in Victoria on Thursday.
"It is there to serve Canadian families. It has nothing to do with politics. But I'm not surprised the Conservatives don't get that. We all remember they declared war on the long-form census, now they seem to be declaring war on the Canada Food Guide."
