The next step may very well be privatization of the LCBO. 

Vehemently disagree with the concept because it brings in major revenue for the provincial government / province of Ontario in terms of providing some source of funding for provincial programs that benefit the greater good.

The Ford government’s social policy initiatives have been misguided — cutting funding to municipalities that in turn affect public health, climate change, urban development, etc.  Giving developers free reign to expand (urban sprawl ) without any thought to proper planning & development is simply neglectful, irresponsible, and unfettered pandering.

All Conservatives give a damn about is the ring of the cash register, so to speak.  At least this Ford government has demonstrated that aptly in it’s erred approach.  Thank goodness that funding cuts will be frozen at least for the time being.  The voice of the people has spoken!

I don't mind having a two pronged approach. I think we should buy liquor at cheaper prices than we have currently (the LCBO pseudo price fixes alcohol it seems...) but I do agree with the tax revenue the LCBO provides.
