Hugh MacIntyre has an editorial today in National Post where he questions some of the liquor laws in Ontario after a recent trip to California and Oregon. In the editorial he touches upon beer availability, retail sales and direct shipping, all things that are challenging if not illegal in Ontario. I feel your pain Hugh, thinking about Ontario in comparison to California is terribly frustrating.
Hugh’s blog, “Freedom is My Nationality” also touched upon beer just last week, mentioning and quoting the Buffalo News article on The Bar Towel’s bus trip to Buffalo, also discussing the beer legal situation in Ontario.
Keep it up Hugh, we need more people aware of the issues and speaking their mind that we are in the dark ages when it comes to beer in Ontario. We need to make these issues worthy of serious consideration alongside other classic political issues with voters and government. It’s the only way we’re ever going to see change.
