No they aren't rationing alcohol in Toronto
Sorry, dear readers. I haven't been posting much these days but I promise to jump right back into it. As for the shot of the long line up outside the LCBO (Liquor Control Board) on Spadina Ave...this photo was taken at 4pm on New Year's Eve.
Unfortunately these poor people neglected to plan ahead. Unlike the rest of the civilized world, here in Ontario, liquor sales are regulated by the province, and only available in government controlled stores. Kinda like the old USSR distribution system.
You can't just walk into any old neighbourhood shop and buy yourelf a bottle. Can't imagine what that might lead to??
Hopefully there was product left on the shelves for these folks. I'm sure they have all learned a very valuable lesson.
