    Limit alcohol consumption to individual campites. Do away with specific dates that liquor is not allowed. People can overdrink at ALL times of the year. The police have to enforce disturbance laws anyway, so why penalize responsible people who can enjoy a drink without being a nuisance?

    If the public can behave themselves for the rest of the year, what makes the 10 days leading up to Victoria Day any different? Nanny-state law at its finest.

    The LCBO/government monopoly is an outdated relic from Prohibition. The Beer Store's selection is an embarrassment to our province and craft-beer enthusiasts. Ontario must allow privatized sales and open up the sale of alcohol and cannabis to business owners. The LCBO's current selection of alcohol and spirits is abysmal compared to other modernized countries. I can only imagine the disaster that will ensue with cannabis legalization. End the outdated monopoly now.

    Rezoning costs are a huge road block for small businesses trying to start in small communities that need the business, but don’t have the zoning bylaws like larger cities. Fees for a rezoning application can be thousands of dollars, not including a registered planner to get you through the confusing process, since the municipality won’t help you with it and suggests you find one. Rezoning is also time consuming and can take up to a year further impeding our business prospects.
