Restaurants Canada wants all restaurants and bars permitted to sell alcohol to go or with deliveries

In a previous article
on KitchenerToday, Restaurants Canada says provincial governments
should permit all restaurants and bars to sell consumers alcohol to go
or in their delivery orders.
The national association representing the industry cites other
provinces which currently allow establishments limited amounts of beer
and wine for customers to take home.
Locally, the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Greg
Durocher says this would only allow businesses to keep up with the
direction delivery services are going.
"I'm not so certain that Restaurants Canada here is asking for
something unusual or unprecedented. I think it's following suite with
other mechanisms that are in place to have alcohol or food delivered or
picked up, and taken home. I think it's almost a moot point and it
probably points to provincial governments and saying, 'yeah, we need to
look at this.'"
Durocher also says, this probably won't be a very controversial issue
and doesn't believe many people are panicking about this, other than
some restaurants and bars.
