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!
