Bill C-311, a private members' bill introduced by Dan Albas MP (Okanagan-Coquihalla), will receive 2nd reading in the House of Commons today. If passed, this Bill will reform the 1928 federal law which prohibits the inter-provincial shipment of wine by creating a national personal use exemption for wine shipped direct to consumers between provinces and in limited amounts for personal consumption. The Bill has received a considerable amount of very positive coverage in the media and is attracting support from all political parties.
