Bill C-311, the amendment to Canadian federal law, which would create a limited national personal use exemption for inter-provincial wine shipments has moved to its final stage at the Canadian Parliament. Today, it was passed by the Senate Banking Committee, who heard from various witnesses and rejected a request by the Ontario and Quebec liquor boards to delay its implementation for 12 months. The Bill will now move to third reading (and final vote) in the Senate. Hopefully, that will occur very soon.
