Booze laws encourage drinking

Liberal government more interested in liquor revenues

I am always amazed how people can rally for any cause, regardless whether it is worthwhile or not, but don’t seem too concerned about drunk drivers.

Why are British Columbians drinking more? The answer is easy. The provincial government has made it so easy to drink whenever and wherever you want.

How many provinces allow booze to be served in pubs until 4 a.m., at sporting events, movie theatres or BYOB to a restaurant?

Drinking laws need to be even tougher. This very “Liberal” government is more interested in the bucks the booze makes for them. It appears people’s lives don’t count.

Change is needed now.
