It's been 84 years since prohibition but Saskatchewan still lives in the era where liquor is legal but only in government stores.
That from the Canadian Taxpayers Federation which says the biggest losers in the privatizing of liquor stores will be the public liquor employee and hence the ads from the SGEU promoting public liquor stores.
Saskatchewan Director Lee Harding says in Alberta, additional stores, products and hours of operation actually increased the number of jobs in the province but also meant more property taxes and business taxes were being paid. On the flip side, he says the rate of lquor related offenses relative to the total population did not increase and neither did alcohol consumption. (vmf Mar 2/09)oem software
