Back to the Future: Alcohol and Interprovincial Trade Barriers

In this edition of 5 Minutes for Business, we hop in our time machine and take you back through all the interprovincial trade inefficiencies and hopelessly outdated promises made by Canada’s Premiers that are obstructing the liberalization of alcohol trade.

With Council of the Federations meeting once again in a few weeks, the Premiers will talk tough or announce a new plan or promise to improve interprovincial trade. Sadly, given their poor record removing these trade barriers, we do not need to take our time machine into the future to know that we are just going to get more of the same.

Nevertheless, the stakes are too high for us not to continue to fight for more constructive solutions to Canada’s internal trade malaise. We are calling for a full review of the Canada Free Trade Agreement in our federal election platform, Vote Prosperity.
