Doug Ford’s beer plan looks unlikely thanks to Kathleen Wynne 

For those Ontarians excited about the potential of beer coming to a corner store near you, we are going to have to be the bearers of bad news.

Although Premier Ford will be working to fulfill his promise to introduce beer sales to corner stores, the former Wynne government decided that beer sales were to be exclusive to The Beer Store. In 2015, the Liberals put into place a contract between The Beer Store, three major breweries, and the province that does not end until 2025.

The contract limits the number and type of retail outlets that are able to sell beer in Ontario. Of course, allowing 11,000 convenience stores to sell beer would be in a direct breach of the contract, with any of the contract’s key terms being subject to heavy penalties.
