PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. -

Changes to Saskatchewan's liquor laws mean eligible businesses can now offer U-brew/U-vin services.
Dan D'Autremont, minister responsible for the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA), said eligible businesses receiving a permit from SLGA can now offer supplies, space, equipment and expertise to customers who want to make their own beer or wine on-site.
The new U-brew/U-vin permits are the result of a review of liquor permitting and regulation in the province. The review has resulted in a number of other regulatory changes that impact commercial and special occasion liquor permittees.
Among the changes, which took effect April 1, is a new permit for businesses who want to offer a home delivery service for beverage alcohol. Another change will see all liquor permitted establishments that sell wine by the bottle be required to recork partially consumed bottles of wine if requested by the customer. There are also increased fines and penalties for those businesses that sell alcohol to minors.

    Glad to see Sask follow British Columbia's lead on the U-Brews and U-Vins. They work very well there.

    Now, let's open up competition for the sale of liquor. How many Saskatchewan people do you know that buy their liquor at Superstore outlets in Alberta? Let's keep that money at home. It's time for a little more Glasnost.

    Home delivery service for beverage alcohol? I wonder how long before one of these delivery people will be robbed when they start this service!!! Let's see....according to McLean's Magazine, we have the worst crime stats in the country, the latest news indicates we have one the highest high school drop-out rates in Canada and the highest H.I.V. infection rates in Canada. Soon we may have the highest robbery rates on persons delivering booze! How are they going to monitor those who are on court ordered conditions not to have alcohol in their possession if it's delivered to their homes? Anything for a sale!!!
