LCBO’s “booze brainiacs” unapologetic in face of Black Bull price screw-up

David MenziesMission Specialist


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.”

Liberals cannot run anything properly. Well except for scams.

The LCBO should be turned into distribution centres and booze be sold in stores, like grocery and convenience stores, we are not all children in Ontario. I have travelled all over the USA and those States that sell Liquor, they have a sign above the Cash Register. That sign has the Picture of a very old woman, who is holding what appears to be an ID card, and the print under her says “they asked me for ID also” So all they need to do is enact a law saying ID must be presented before any sale of Beer or Liquor and move it into local stores. I do hope when these insane liberals are reduced to a non party status, we get some liquor laws changed and have the Province stop treating us like little children all the time.

- I’ve never tried Black Bull before. The LCBO has long been criticized for not using it’s buying power to lower the cost of the booze it carries. They are a large bloated bureaucracy that has outlived its’ usefulness (if it ever had one in the first place). We’re far past the time when it should have been dissolved.
