As everyone knows, both of BC's major political parties now have leadership races well underway. As far as I am aware, none of the leadership candidates have yet taken policy positions on the modernization of BC's archaic wine and liquor laws. In my view, BC's current liquor distribution systems is in desperate need of wide ranging reform: see this summary of BC's outdated laws and policies to see why. Regrettably, previous governments have paid insufficient attention to these issues and we are still lumbered with a system which needs multiple fixes. Hopefully, these issues will become part of the policy debates that relate to the leadership races. I look forward to seeing the candidates' positions on wine and liquor law reform. I urge readers to get involved in the political process and to make this reform into an important political issue.
