Ontario Takes Steps to Stop Being So Lame, "Grow Up."
For many foreign or out-of-province tourists, Ontario's draconian liquor laws might come across as...well, draconian. (It could be worse, I know) Fortunately, change seems to be horizon, as the governing Liberals have stated their intentions to relax liquor laws at our province's festivals and major events. Instead of forcing beer lovers to consume their drinks in cramped, isolated, stigmatizing "beer tents" and "alcohol zones", the proposed change would allow patrons at licenced festivals to take their booze with them freely around the grounds. Control would still be an issue, and the details of enforcement still need to be worked out, but I think it's a step in the right direction. Maybe if the Bills move to Toronto we might actually be allowed to tailgate like everyone else.
