In late breaking news this afternoon, Premier Stelmach of Alberta announced that he is reversing the liquor tax hikes that were implemented in the recent April budget. The hikes had added 75 cents to Alberta's flat tax on a bottle of wine, increasing the total tax to $3.00 per bottle. Stelmach indicated that he had been uncomfortable with the increases all along.
