CRFA’s Dwayne Marling (left) meets with Minister responsible for MLCC Jim Rondeau to push for a rewrite of Manitoba’s liquor legislation – one that would result in less red tape and create a better business climate for restaurateurs.
(Jun. 11/12) After Manitoba announced its intention to merge the Manitoba Liquor Control Commission (MLCC) and Manitoba Lotteries into a new Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Corporation, CRFA continued to push for a better liquor system.
In early May, CRFA’s Dwayne Marling met with the Minister responsible for MLCC Jim Rondeau to discuss the potential impact of the merger on members. We called for a major rewrite of the province’s beverage alcohol legislation – to be modern, simplified, streamlined, and without unnecessary red tape. Minister Rondeau’s favourable response was reinforced when the Minister responsible for Manitoba Lotteries and lead Minister for the merger Dave Chomiak spoke positively about rewriting the legislation in a media interview.
