Ontario could soon see a more relaxed attitude to its liquor laws.
Chris Bentley, Ontario’s Attorney General announced Wednesday that he is in the early stages of consultations on new liquor rules, saying responsible Ontarians are ready for more freedom.
On the table for the new rules is allowing people to walk around freely with an alcoholic drink in their hand, as opposed to herding them into beer tents, behind fences, or within an outlined perimeter.
Ontario could also see a new later “last call” at special events like weddings, as late as 2 a.m. Currently, servers have to announce last call at 1 a.m.
