Thank goodness for that.
The Halifax Chronicle-Herald has a story that they posted online twenty minutes ago that states that "Health Canada has authorized the use of caffeine as a food additive in all carbonated soft drinks instead of in cola-type beverages only."
In their infinite wisdom and with great vision Health Canada "...says beverage companies will be allowed to add synthetic caffeine to non-cola soft drinks in concentrations no higher than 150 parts per million. The maximum amount of caffeine allowed for cola beverages is 200 parts per million."
Let me translate: Just like the States, Canada will be able to have the finest caffeine delivery system extant: Diet Mountain Dew.
My teeth are chattering already.
