08 August, 2018, 20:26
A source with knowledge of the plan told The Canadian Press last week that the Progressive Conservative plan will lower the minimum price of a bottle or can of beer to $1 from $1.25 by the Labour Day weekend.
Ontario Premier Doug Ford was all smiles today as he helped stack beer at the Barley Days Brewery in Picton; all smiles, too, as he delivered on an election promise to lower the minimum price on a bottle of beer.
The province previously had buck-a-beer, but that was changed by the former Liberal government in 2008.
"Nobody is being forced to lower their prices and there will be no subsidies or tax handouts", Ford said, calling the move a "win-win".
"And it won't affect the provincial treasury as beer is a volumetric tax".
"We're bringing back a buck-a-beer to Ontario".
What it will mean is that the government will offer "non-financial incentives" to brewers who sell beer for $1.
"Give the tax payers a break and let them have 24 cans of beer for 24 bucks". "They created a new rule, another piece of red tape that made a buck-a-beer illegal", said Mr. Ford.
