The Liquor Control Board of Ontario is accountable to the Ministry of Finance in Ontario and regulates alcohol sales in the province. It's also one of the world's largest single purchasers of beverage alcohol products!
Now they aren't actually going on strike yet, this vote was only if the talks break down. The contract ended March 31st but talks are still scheduled into May (can anyone say May Two-Four! Oh no!)
The possibility of the strike is also bringing the LCBO's monopoly on liquor sales to the fore front. The LCBO is able to dictate which products are available for sale in the province. You'll know of course that local microbreweries, wineries and distilleries sell to the public through their store front location, but to expand across the province they would have to guarantee minimum volume which leaves most out of luck.
How do you feel about the LCBO's control on available liquor products?
