As most know, in the early part of December the LCBO started a delivery partnership with Skip The Dishes. This partnership was quickly put on pause due to collective outrage from licensees and those employed  in the hospitality industry alike.

 While the pause on this initiative a short term bandaid to stave off further die off in the industry, it is not the real change the industry must seek. 

Currently Licensees in Ontario have no access to wholesale pricing. Bars, restaurants and any other licensee receive no volume discounts and often pay more than the shelf price. This markup is added whether the item is purchased through the LCBO or not, even if the product never passes through the LCBOs hands. 

While reasonable taxation through both excise and sales taxes are only fair game, kneecapping licensees ability to access wholesale prices only leads to increased economic challenge in this sector, but also back room deals between vendors and licensees which are not equitable and skirt taxation.  

Its time we demand something different from our regulatory framework and the politicians who make it so. The hospitality industry as so many challenges ahead; it’s time wholesale pricing of alcohol became accessible to AGCO licensees on a permanent basis. This will both stimulate the industry and provide much needed relief. 

Please sign this petition and pass it on to anyone in the industry who you think would care enough to sign it too.
