Uncorking a Strange Brew: The Need for More Competition in Ontario's Alcoholic Beverage Retailing System

The lack of competition in Ontario’s system for alcoholic beverage retailing causes higher prices for consumers and foregone government revenue, according to a report from the C.D. Howe Institute. In “Uncorking a Strange Brew: The Need for More Competition in Ontario’s Alcoholic Beverage Retailing System,” authors Paul R. Masson and Anindya Sen call for a more competitive system in alcoholic beverage retailing in Ontario, which would result in increased government revenue, lower prices, and more convenience for consumers.
