The indefensibly anachronistic private-monopoly Beer Store

National Post: Chris Selley, Matt Gurney, and NOW’s Jonathan Goldsbie discuss Ontario’s antiquated web of liquor-retail laws here. A funny read.

Chris Selley:

“I’m more offended by the quasi-monopoly that’s run by the government than by the one that’s run by the three foreign mega-brewers. Because that’s nothing less than proof of concept: The private sector can safely and profitably sell alcohol. Now if only we would allow it to do so conveniently, we’d be in business.”
