RANDY HILLIER TO OPEN UP BEER AND WINE DISTRIBUTION
Randy Hillier, MPP for Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington, PC Leadership candidate, announced today he would allow competition to the foreign owned Beer Store.
“Beer distribution in this province is currently controlled by foreign companies.” Hillier said. “In these tough times we need to give struggling small Canadian businesses like corner stores, restaurants and hotels more opportunities.”
“Dalton McGuinty is costing local Ontario businesses millions of dollars, to the benefit of foreign-owned breweries.”
Hillier proposes to allow corner stores to be able to sell wine and beer. As well restaurants, bars and hotels would be able to sell off-sales to further help their businesses.
“These changes will help Ontario’s service industry grow and prosper, and provide more options for Ontarians” continued Hillier.
The Hillier campaign is anchored by three central principles: Freedom, Justice and Democracy.
Randy Hillier was first elected to the Ontario legislature in October 2007 – winning one of three new seats for the PC Party of Ontario – and was the party’s critic for rural affairs.
