Ontario’s Liquor Laws May Be Relaxed

headlessqptag.jpg    In a move that may or may not be related to the fact that Dalton McGuinty will soon be asking us for our votes, the provincial government has just announced that liquor laws—specifically the ones that regulate special events—are under review. Up for consideration: permitting people to wander around festivals with their brews (rather than restricting them to a beer tent) and allowing special events to serve booze until 2 a.m. (right now they must stop by 1 a.m.). Public consultations are planned, though details on those are not yet available.
