It's time to end the beer monopoly for big, foreign-owned brewers.

 

The Beer Store has had a near monopoly on beer sales since the end of prohibition in 1927. For years, consumers have been demanding more choice, and questioned why we allow this privileged status for a foreign-owned private company.

 

    "It's a crazy system. It's also despised across the political spectrum. Those on the right dislike how it quashes free-market competition; those on the left dislike its private monopoly."

    - Globe & Mail Editorial, November 21, 2014

 

The Wynne Liberals made the most timid step forward imaginable when they allowed a handful of grocery stores to sell 6 packs of beer at the same prices as the Beer Store, and only during the same limited hours. It was the illusion of reform without any meaningful change.

 

Now Doug Ford has promised to open up beer sales to all private stores, but voters have been burned before by politicians who make empty promises and never deliver.

 

Sign our letter and tell Doug Ford to keep his promise!
