HERE IS HOW THE CHAT WENT:

INTERPROVINCIAL WINE SHIPMENTS IN CANADA December 21, 2011

POST CHAT UPDATE:

Here is a SAMPLE LETTER you can send to your MP to show support for Federal Bill C-311, and here is the address of your Member of Parliament in Ottawa.  This bill was introduced by MP Dan Albas of Okanagan-Coquihalla (@danalbas)  Now is the time to show the Federal government that it is important that Canadians have better access to Candian-made wines!

Background information on this topic can be found throughout Mark Hicken’s site winelaw.ca.   There has been a tremendous amount of activity on this topic in Ottawa lately with the introduction of Bill C-311.  An overview of the 1928 law that governs interprovincial wine shipments in Canada can be read here.

Additional information is found on the www.freemygrapes.ca.  This site includes great links and information and tells you how you can support amending our archaic liquor laws.
