With the Christmas season in full swing LCBO is putting locked devices on their booze to hopefully reduce theft. The clunky plastic locks are attached to the top of the more popular brands of vodka along with Bacardi rum in Toronto stores and can only be removed by staff at the check-out counter, similar to clothing security tags. The locks won’t trip the security alarm at the exit in the event of theft, but the contraption makes it impossible to open up the alcohol in any event.
Do you think this is a waste of taxpayer dollars? Could we just kill this monopoly already? Do you think this will help reduce theft at LCBO?
