Last November, I bought a bottle of the best scotch I’d ever sampled at the LCBO.
When the price of this Scottish ambrosia suddenly jumped by almost $37 overnight, I found myself with yet another reason to criticize this government cartel that’s incompetent, lazy and unapologetic, even when it makes egregious mistakes.
Watch as I share my tale of the Black Bull screw-up.
In the private sector, a retailer that is incompetent, unaccountable and unapologetic will soon be out of business.
As for the LCBO, it can be all of the above and stay in business because it’s a power-drunk, state-sanctioned liquor monopoly that has the audacity to justify its existence based on some abstract concept called “social responsibility.”
