Industry Leaders Call for Reform of Shipping Laws

At today\’s Canadian Wine Summit at the Vancouver Playhouse International Wine Festival, wine industry leaders called for reform of Canada\’s inter-provincial wine shipping laws. Participants agreed that the Importation of Intoxicating Liquors Act (from 1928) is \”embarrassing\” to all Canadians and should be changed. While the scope of reform was a contentious issue, all speakers at the session agreed that the law is outdated and needs to be changed.
