(I notice the LCBO is putting up signs to not break six packs now??) LCBO has had those signs up for a while, at least at any LCBO I've been to. It's supposed to be for sealed six packs not open accessible ones. A few weeks ago the cashier seemed a bit angry at me for having a single dead guy ale (...

I'd never had the coffee porter before, so the six pack was a great way for me to try one. (I notice the LCBO is putting up signs to not break six packs now??) I went to a party with my porter, the hostess had bought a 6 of the porter that day and she hated it, so I scored 5 more! It's good. My wife...

Anyone been to this Cams Place spot? Yes, first week it opened. On tap they had Cameron's Auburn, Blanch de Chambly, but for some crazy reason I ordered a 50 as a joke. Joke was on me. I had the fish and chips, it started out ok, but it was catfish and I can only take so much catfish. Radio was on ...

beer & wine import taxes/duties

I know there is a link to the excel spreadsheet to determine how much tax and duties you will pay, just wondering if it is up to date - I notice it still has 7% gst. I'm mainly wondering if the other fees have changed. And, is it the same for wine? I've tried searching the Canada Customs site, I gue...

if harris didn't privatize the lcbo, it ain't ever going to happen. not saying i'm content with the way things work, just being realistic. The PCs never privatize anything, they are liberals. I think the LCBO actually started getting better when Harris was in. I think he scarred them or something.

BC NDP candidate - pay more for beer

"Vote May 12 for fair beer prices,” reads the ad, which includes a photo of “NDP Beer” at $15 for a six-pack, compared to $12 for “Our Beer.”

a good bar code system could allow companies to determine how much they pay for returned empties. Each company might have a different amount.

I made 24,000 last year. I didn't work 40 hour weeks though. I get 30 hours over 6 days.

Kind of hoping they do strike. Might open people's minds a bit to the private sector. As for 60% of jobs being causal and no full time benefits (I'm assuming that means there are part time benefits), so what. 20.8k for casual work? How many hours is that? Or is it 40 hours a week, which would be abo...
