High fat content

In 2007, the Campbell administration announced it would removing junk foods in schools as part of an initiative to fight obesity in children and youth. Among those foods: "high-fat, high-salt potato or other chips." Nevertheless, last night, Liberal Surrey-Cloverdale candidate Kevin Falcon stated on his twitter feed, "It's great to see the new Frito Lay distribution building in Surrey!" - creating 100 new jobs for the city. Which is all well and good. But this is also the same junk food company whose products include Chee-tos, Doritos, Tostitos and, of course, Lay's potato chips. Fancy that!
