  • When you have a monopoly on beer sales through one vendor, this is what happens. You have The Beer Store (monopoly) and the LCBO that control prices. Meanwhile Doug Ford thinks he can reduce beer prices with magic "because".

    Taxes....because they know we’ll just bend over and keep on paying.  It’s a guaranteed cash cow.

    I can't imagine that is the worst place in the world. In Scotland, there is a minimum of 50p per unit of alcohol, so a cheap bottle of cider will cost £10 at least. Southern Scots go to Carlisle to buy ale.

    Because beer and alcohol sales are controlled by the government. 55% of what you pay is tax.
