December 21 8-9pm PST: Interprovincial Wine Shipments in Canada

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.

  1. maybe this will help bring the wines laws up to date in Canada. I also hope this site and discussions on Twitter every week will help educate and inform people about the wine industry in Bc

  2. This is a great site to keep these issues current and in the faces of those who make the decisions(you know who you are).. Now if only our gov would stop calling me for pre election fundraising questions and just ask what we want.. I guess i’m dreaming.

    Can’t wait to see the flow here!
