Ban on Transporting Liquor Across Provincial Boundaries
A radio host found himself on the other side of an outdated law still on the books in Canada. His transportation of a case of wine across provincial boundaries contravenes Canada’s Importation of Intoxicating Liquors Act. The 1928 Act prohibits the transport of ‘intoxicating liquors’ into a province. Currently, provincial permission must be sought before a consumer can transport one bottle of wine between provinces! A little outdated wouldn’t you think?
