Great news for those following the wine shipping law saga. Dan Albas, the MP for Okanagan-Coquihalla, will introduce a private members' bill which is intended to amend the Importation of Intoxicating Liquors Act (IILA) next week. The IILA is the 1928 post-prohibition federal law that prevents wineries from shipping directly to their customers in other provinces. The private members' bill is entitled "An Act to amend the Importation of Intoxicating Liquors Act (interprovincial importation of wine for personal use)". More details on the exact wording and effect of the Bill (if it gets passed) will be posted as soon as they are available.
