Well, it also seems to include beer and consumers can file a complaint if you don't get a pint when it's called a pint, with substantial penalties for businesses.
PINTS OF DRAFT BEER
In order to process your complaint, please provide:
Your name and contact information;
The name and address of the establishment;
Info on how you have attempted to resolve the matter;
A photo of the menu or advertisement showing the quantity claimed to have been dispensed, if possible; and
The sales receipt, if you have it.
Before submitting your complaint, consider the following:
A pint contains 20 fl. oz. (568 ml) in Canada.
The limit of error for 20 fl. oz. is 0.5 fl. oz.—the foam (head) is not included in the measurement.
When a quantity other than a pint is advertised, the quantity served must be must be equal to the stated quantity within the limit of error.
Any thoughts on this? I know from time to time the 'size of a pint' conversation comes up, but it tends to be around bars who call it a 'pint' but its not actually 20oz, yet do not mislead patrons as to its size.
For example, Duke's Refresher at Yonge/Gerrard serves what they call 'pints', but also state that they're 10 ounces. That's kind of just a joke in terminology, but not necessarily misleading. Or is it?
