“Health Canada considers sweeping ban on junk food ads aimed at children and teens.” So reads the headline at CBC News. And with that matter-of-fact announcement — just a normal day’s political news in the true north weak and socialist — a nation quietly declares itself lost to freedom forever.

If you think Trump might be mad about this, you know who’s even more upset? California taxpayers and students. Those are the people who are paying tuition and funding your school through some of the highest tax rates in the country — they will be the ones to feel the burden.
