A tax on sugar has been sug­gested

Is it a good idea?

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

Cele Bai­ley, Air­lie Beach: Peo­ple have too much sugar these days. It’s a good thing.

Glenn Clarke, Proser­pine: It’s bloody ridicu­lous. There is a whole range of food that con­trib­utes to obe­sity. Rex Tay­lor, Con­way: It’s a good thing. It won’t make that much dif­fer­ence (to obe­sity) but it all helps.

Den­nis Lud­wid, Proser­pine: No, ev­ery­thing is taxed enough in Aus­tralia as it is.

Bernadette Re­wald, Marion: It’s a bad thing. I don’t want to pay more.

Rod Col­drey, Mo­ran­bah: It’s no good. Ev­ery­one loves sugar on their Weeties.

Wendy Walker, Can­non­vale: I think it’s a good idea if peo­ple are go­ing to be a bur­den on the health sys­tem.
