Tim Hudak supports sale of booze in corner stores; would sell part of the LCBO

TORONTO – Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak says he would allow beer and wine in corner stores.

He says he wouldn’t get the government out of the booze business, but would sell part of the LCBO or some of its stores.

He says other provinces like Alberta allow the private sector to sell alcohol.

But Hudak says he wouldn’t cut taxes on alcohol.

It’s among the ideas the Tory leader is floating, which also include having the province get out of the gambling business.

Hudak says the government should concentrate on core services like health care and education.
