China People’s Daily reports on liquor sales changes

HIDEOUS: A story on Big Gov’s change in plans for its state-controlled liquor sales reads like a China People’s Daily report. No – worse. Some points from the article:

Liberals “clarify” how alcohol can be sold in grocery stores

Grocers who want to sell liquor will have to generate 75% of their sales from food and operate a store that is at least 10,000 square feet …

An unspecified number of grocery stores will be given permission to start selling B.C. wine on store shelves. Otherwise, sales will be allowed via a store-within-a-store model that would have a separate cashier for an alcohol section. …

One big obstacle, however, is the government’s insistence that any grocers who want to sell alcohol must be at least one kilometre from an existing liquor store or get approval from the liquor-selling business owner who operates within that one-kilometre radius. …

The grocer would also have to buy one of B.C.’s 630 private liquor licenses and move it to the grocery store. …

B.C.’s parliamentary secretary for liquor policy reform, John Yap…

Dear God. The Liberal-led Big Government of BC has a “parliamentary secretary for liquor policy reform?”!
