Ontarians want greater access to alcohol

A new study finds that a significant percentage of Canadians would prefer if more retail stores in the province were allowed to sell beer and wine.

The poll, commissioned by the Ontario Convenience Stores Association, found that approximately six out of every 10 Ontarians over the age of 19 believe smaller retailers and shops should be allowed to sell alcohol. However, this rate was even higher among certain segments of the province, as 71 percent living in the East said availability should be increased, with just 27 percent opposing the idea.

Dave Bryans, president of the OCSA, said this becoming a reality may be decided at the ballet box.

“Ontario voters are simply asking for more convenience – like being able to pick-up some beer for their BBQ on Canada Day. That’s not a lot to ask,” said Bryans. He went on to say convenience stores do a better job of keeping it alcohol out of minors’ hands compared to the Liquor Control Board of Ontario.

Wine connoisseurs who want their kids to stay away from their collections may want to consider purchasing a storage unit to house their assortment of fine wines.
