By the end of the year some Ontario grocery stores will be able to sell six packs of beer in the province but not everybody is happy about it.
OPSEU and The (foreign owned) Beer Store have launched radio ads citing questionable statistics to try and scare people about the prospect of some privatization in alcohol sales.
The information seems suspect to me not the least because it's been decades since Ontarians in some rural communities have been able to buy beer in several agency stores located in low population areas. If you're not sure what to think, ask yourself why an Ontarian can go into a store in a rural community and buy a six pack or a bottle of rum or a bottle of wine but that same adult in a city, is deemed too irresponsible?
Even though it's not easy to get answers, I set out to try and get some and in the end, can only conclude this is all about protectionism through the use of fear-mongering.
