Monday, December 03, 2018

GOVERNMENT OF ALBERTA  The government is launching a trade challenge against Ontario over unfair liquor policies that prevent Alberta manufacturers from accessing the Ontario market.  Minister of Economic Development & Trade, Deron Bilous, states “It doesn’t make any sense that it’s easier to sell Alberta beer in Tokyo than it is in Toronto. We’re fighting for the Alberta craft liquor manufacturers who create good jobs here in our province".
