News Tidbits:

  • It was a very kind move of the Ontario government to create a map for consumers looking for alcoholic beverages. During the OPSUE strike, with incredible timing, the province has launched a new searchable and interactive map of retailers that remain open and ready to serve. “This new map is a great way to connect people across the province to local Ontario-made products and support the hundreds of Ontario businesses and thousands of Ontario workers who make these products and serve customers each and every day,” said Premier Doug Ford. “It also supports our plan to offer consumers the kind of choice and convenience available to other Canadians when purchasing alcoholic beverages, starting later this summer. I hope people across the province will take this chance to shop local and responsibly enjoy some great Ontario-made products!”
