McGuinty Considering Specialty Wine Retail

July 12th, 2008 · 4 Comments

In an interesting yet maddening article this week in the Toronto Star, Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty expressed his support for Ontario-produced wines and announced that Transportation Minister Jim Bradley would be “considering any and all proposals that could enhance the sale of wine in the province of Ontario”.

As correctly pointed out by my friend Greg Clow, there’s quite a double standard with this.  The very same week that Dalton McGuinty dismissed any changes to our beer retailing system he seems to indicate that his government would consider specialty retail for Ontario wines.  Obviously it makes better politics to favour Ontario wines over beer.  Although any beer aficionado would know that this has been the case for quite some time.

    Images of snakes and vines and iridescent colours are
    common but, to the shaman’s eye, symbols
    of the diseases which inhabit his client’s body are also
    seen. It is also used in magical baths to change the bather’s energy and bring good luck.
    In that estimate, the number of galaxies equals the number of stars mentioned earlier.
