Beer and Wine in the Grocery Stores!!!

I don't want to be a union-buster, but this may be an opportunity to finally mobilize public opinion to make it politically possible to change our system and allow the sale of beer and wine and - good god don't say it! - even liquor in grocery stores and corner stores.

At least two recent premiers have promised to do it, but there seem to be some powerful forces preventing it from happening. It's like when they put postal outlets in corner stores and pharmacies - lots of people were worried that service would decline, but it has worked out spendidly and is more convenient on all fronts.

Among the other benefits, it would be a great environmental boost... instead of driving across town to a Beer Store, walk leisurely to the corner. All around, an idea whose time has come.
