Confused Social engineering? Can you expand on that please?


If there are communities or neighborhoods that are maybe a little "rougher" or prone to alcohol related problems, the LCBO might choose to open a smaller number of stores there than a private model would.

It's a stretch, to say the least, and I only came up with it because I believe they could make just as much money if they allowed private sales and taxed the crap out of it -- therefore, I don't believe money is a factor.

But - reading winederlust's post, many of his points are much more rational and valid than my social engineering idea.

Back on topic - I picked up a couple bottles of 2007 Adelaida Viking Estate Vineyard Cab Sauv at one of the Ottawa stores for about $42 -- list price was $59. I'm completely unfamiliar with the producer, so I just took a flyer on it based on price.
