Alcohol Sales Set To Expand In Ontario

Finance Minister confirms beer and wine sales will expand further into corner, big box, and more grocery stores.

The Finance Minister confirms plans to further expand beer and wine sales into corner stores, big box stores, and more grocery stores.

Vic Fedeli says the government is making good on a pledge made during last spring’s election to offer consumers more choice when it comes to where they can purchase booze.

He gave no timeline for the move but said it will drive down prices on beer and wine and ensure that the government does not need to privatize assets to increase availability of products.

The Tories have previously said they are not planning to privatize Liquor Control Board of Ontario stores despite receiving a report last fall that recommended consideration of the sale of some government assets.
