Pretty much anyone in the province who doesn't live in

Fixed! Not sure how many times I've been looking for something with low inventory and the only bottles left are in Ottawa. Shame about the policy change, I've found that the consultants typically have no issue with inter-store shipping. As for diesel fuel costs I find it hard to believe that inter-store shipments aren't simply moved via trucks that are already going to and from the stores in question, so management of the shipment is merely administrative in terms of ensuring that it gets onto the truck from the sending store and makes its way onto a truck going to the receiving store, so no excess fuel used...but then again this is the LCBO so who knows.
