I’m not going to get into a big discussion on political philosophy or economics or the evils of prohibition. The inherent goodness in this story can be summed up in two words: More Booze.
Mayor Jim Watson served notice at the end of Wednesday’s council meeting that he intends to bring a motion forward at the next meeting in support of local brewers who are seeking a ‘by the glass’ licence from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario.
Such a licence allows Ontario wineries and breweries that already hold a manufacturer’s licence from the AGCO to sell and serve their own wine or beer to customers for consumption in single servings at their manufacturing site under certain conditions.
Okay. I’m pretty darned sure I’ll be voting Watson in the fall.
