Premier Kathleen Wynne made history on Tuesday morning, simply by buying a six-pack of beer at a Toronto grocery store — something that hasn’t been legal in Ontario since prohibition.
Wynne was carded by the cashier when she bought beer at a Toronto Loblaws store, starting the long-promised roll out of beer sales in select grocery outlets across the province.
The goal is to have six-packs of beer available at 60 grocery stores by the end of this year, eventually expanding to 450 grocery retailers, large and small, by 2017.
The Beer Store will keep the exclusive right to sell 24-packs and most 12-packs in the province, while grocery stores will only carry six-packs.
