A brand new Canadian Football League season has kicked off and hope abounds for the CFL’s beleaguered Toronto Argonauts, who are once again playing in the great outdoors at the swank BMO Field rather than the sterile Rogers Centre.
And did you hear the news? Tailgating has come to Toronto! Wow! Tailgate parties! In Canada! In Toronto! Wow!
Not so fast, fan-boy.
Only in Canada would we have a tailgate party that prohibits attendees from bringing their own alcoholic refreshments.
You can, of course, purchase a marked-up cup of beer from a stadium vendor but you just can’t do the BYOB tailgate thingy.
How is it that a football fan in Buffalo or Cleveland or Pittsburgh can bring a case of beer to a tailgate party but we can’t?
It comes down to paternalistic liquor bureaucrats who treat taxpaying adults like infants even though we’re the ones funding their salaries and gold-plated benefits.
WATCH as I explain...
