Today the Vancouver Sun published the following blog post about new Happy Hour rules, with new minimum pricing. Sounds good?  Not when the minimum prices are higher than current ones. I don’t understand why the government has any say on what a business charges for a drink.  In fact, if anything they should be putting a limit on what restaurants can charge for booze….oh wait, who is it that controls the flow of booze in this province?

Here is a chart of the how things break down and link to the post

Here are some tweets from some of Vancouver’s craft beer community.
