I know what it's about but your view is what my point is about. You and others think that if that shithole ceased to be, gone would be your high quality drink and that's a ridiculous fear. You'd have your 'low-end product' available in convenience stores and boutique shops would open up with all your over-priced favourites. It's like that all over the world. Who cares if it weren't all under one roof?
So yeah, at it's core, it's a huge money maker for the province but it's unfair and defended by people who basically reiterate, word for word, the LCBO's argument.
