Everyone is missing the big picture here...this is to recoup the costs from the Auto bailout and nothing more, when they have made their money back it will just be a cash cow for MLA pay raises

I hate to say "I told you so...", ok. No I don't! ( Something about 'He Who Laughs Last') ROTFL

I said this was going to happen because as the "raise the prices of smokes so people will quit this nasty, dirty, deadly, expensive, horrible, yadda, yadda...". Well. They got their wish. Now the boozers will make up the difference! Lots of people have quit buying tobacco and the govts have noticed the substantial drop in revenue from taxes. No way the govt was going to try to 'get by on less'. You have to!

Thank you for protecting me, oh great Liberal nanny state.


OH, BTW, funny how you don't seem to complain when the great conservative nanny state uses the law to protect us from drugs, prostitution, and the immorality of homosexual marriages.


Drugs are illegal.
Prostitution is a mix and Homosexual marriages are supported by the Conservative Party.
If you want these things legal, you should advise the Liberal party to run these things on their platform, rather than try and sneak them through against the will of Canadian voters.

The Liberal party does listen to it's members, dosen't it?


California had an absolute bumper crop for wines in the last few years and their products have been good and plentiful. None of those benefits were passed along to Canadians because the marketing boards couldn't trust Canadians to buy good, inexpensive wine.
Somehow the rest of the world survives but the governments of Canada still needs to treat us like babies.

It ain't cheap. It especially hurts when you go down south and they got cold beers on ice at the gas station for like fifty cents. 'Course, then you gotta drink American swill,. but still--fiddy cent!

In 2004 Paul Martin promised he would legalize marijuana. The issue has taken a back seat due to 2006 election outcome, and now, other more important concerns overshadow drug use.

The Cons don't support prostitution or gay marriage. Unless were're thinking of different conservative parties.

Do the liberals listen to its voters? Who knows...I guess as much as the con party listens to its voters.

Instead, the Liquor Control Board of Ontario sets minimum prices as part of its "social responsibility" mandate established in 1993. Translation: If alcohol is too cheap, you may abuse it.


Thank you nanny state. What would I ever do without you?



[cheer] [cheer] . There is no need for the state to be involved in the price of beer.
