At the Forum for Women Entrepreneurs Dinner held in Vancouver last night, Premier Campbell called for an end to inter-provincial trade barriers that prevent the shipment of BC wine across Canada. As readers know, there is a promising federal initiative underway at the present time to create a national "personal use exemption" which would allow Canadians to order limited quantities of wine directly from a winery in another province (see the Free My Grapes website for details). Let's hope that BC's new Premier, to be elected by Liberals this weekend, will carry through on this.
