|Comments:||You must defend your Norway article, seeing as this is important to your case.||You should offer some sort of alternative to banning sugary drinks more clearly if you are not going to contest the evils of sugary drinks.|
The decision is for the Opposition: Jordan Knight
Reason for Decision:
The proposition fails to respond to the articulation made about these contracts being necessary in order for schools to profit and educate about the harms of sugary drinks. There is no evidence on the proposition's side that is extended to show that the government will profit more than the contracts help schools. This is a reason to vote for the opposition.
