Ontario is a modern, responsible society, but our alcohol retailing system is largely a product of the 1920′s when it was established. In fact, when the government-run LCBO and the now foreign-owned Beer Store duopoly was established, it was the same era as when Al Capone and his Chicago gang were in their prime.
Time and society have moved forward, but Ontario still lags in providing the kind of convenient alcohol retailing system responsible Ontario adults are asking for.
A majority of people in Ontario agree – it is time to broaden the system. Let’s modestly expand Ontario beer and wine retailing so that established, responsible community retailers can give hard-working people in Ontario what they’re asking for.
