Scheer accuses Liberals of exaggerating over his call to review Canada Food Guide - 2019-07-24
The new guide did away with traditional food groups and portion sizes and focused instead on broader guidelines, including eating more plant-based protein and drinking more water.
Last week, Scheer drew the Liberals' ire after he told dairy farmers in Saskatoon the new guide is flawed and needs review.
The Liberals say the guide has received an overwhelmingly positive response, including from nutrition experts. They allege Scheer is bowing to special interests and declaring war on Health Canada's research.
