Liquor laws are outdated

Re: Belfry wine auction cancellation.

The cost to taxpayers of controlling non-hard liquor sales in our province is totally outrageous. With proper ID, you can purchase a bottle of wine at your corner store in Quebec and you can also pick up a case of beer at your local grocery store in Newfoundland. It’s always been that way and believe it or not for some, death and destruction did not fall upon these lands.
