Oh, I get it!
A price "floor" sounds good! To hell with what the word actually means!

The eternally outraged. Sheesh...

Even the idea of cheap beer pisses them off.

Don't buy any then. Image

I don’t get Ontario.

Mad when buck a beer was gone. Mad because a guy is following through on his promises. Now we’re mad again because buck a beer is coming back?

Can’t we go back to the days of the Liberals where we were lied to and no promises were kept? Everyone was much happier then.

If buck a beer "comes back" I\ll move to Ontario. It will probably happen a couple times for special events, maybe the odd Happy Hour, but who in hell is gonna lose money selling beer for a buck? Not like it can be a loss leader for something else, it's the thing you make your money on.
BC elected an idiot with cheap beer promises too, once. Didn't happen. Hope that Ford doesn't become the laughing stock of Canada like VanDerZalm did.

Why the hell was the previous government telling the breweries how low a price they weren't allowed to charge? Typical smiley Big Nanny leftism with it's "we're doing this for your own good" argument + forced high prices in order to keep their tax take off of beer as inflated as possible? :|

At this stage I'll have to assume that there wasn't any aggravating, annoying, interfering, and just plain obnoxious intrusion the previous Ontario government wouldn't do, just to incessantly increase taxes and also simply for the enjoyment of punking-out the average Ontarian. If Doug Ford succeeds only in implementing small-scale libertarian populist things, like not dictating the price of beer from a government office, then his new regime will be remembered at least somewhat fondly.

The whiniest of the whiners are already going on about the Greater Toronto Area seceding from Ontario and becoming the eleventh province. Not even two months since the SJW dipshits that ruined Ontario lost the election and they're already snowflaking themselves into some kind of spasm. :roll:

I never did. I’m not outraged it’s just sad that cheap gimmicks like this is what politics has sunk to. FTR: the current minimum price is $1.07 a beer so I’m not sure what all the fanfare is about.

There has been a minimum price for alcohol for decades, it goes up nominally once in a while to reflect inflation. It wasn’t an invention of the recent Liberal government Alberta has one too., as does just about every province.

Also Ford is not “doing away with government dictating the price of beer” he is simply dictating a new price. And for no real reason.

What problem is he trying to solve? Are there people who currently can’t afford beer who will now have access, and should that be a pressing concern for government?


So you can relax with the Liberal Derangement Syndrome. .
