What is LCBO

So are you suggesting that a LCB is a natural and necessary derivative of having a repressive socialist regime whose main interest is maintaining social responsibility and maximising my welfare?

Got to check out Bielorussia (LCBB), Myanmar (LCBM or LCBB?) and Cuba (LCBC) in my travels.

Neither natural, nor necessary, nor the result of a repressive socialist regime, as may be the case in Cuba.

Origin seems to be a compromise (at the time) between the central control of the temperance era, and a free market.

Just a cash cow that governments of all stripes, conservative, liberal, socialist, have clung to, at our expense (on many levels).

Daniel Yergin presented a good argument that the pendulum that swings from centralized economic control to free market does so independently of political ideology The Commanding Heights . Both socialist and capitalist regimes have swung back and forth this way throughout modern history. It seems to be time for our regime to loosen up a bit an allow competition. (Not holding my breath though).

At least the SAQ seems to be a step up from the lcbo.


Oh we used to bitch and complain too but the SAQ did improve quite a bit in the past few years to stem the cross-border shopping floods into LCBO stores. I think the LCBO needs to respond likewise.

I think the LCBO needs to FOAD, but that's just me.

As an Ontario resident, I strongly agree that overall the SAQ does a much better job than does the LCBO.
