Here’s our roundup of the best and brightest stories this morning.
BYO restos: Coalition Avenir Québec finance critic François Bonnardel knows how to get the public’s attention. He says the province should change its alcohol-permit system to make all restaurant liquor licenses BYOB, according to a CBC report. If we can bring our own beer and wine, we’re more likely to go out for dinner, he reasons, since we’re all a little lighter in the pocket and you know how much a glass of wine costs when you’ve already plunked down $14.99 for your chicken and poutine. The CAQ says the St-Hubert and Normandin chains think the idea is boss; smaller restaurants worry this would cut into their already slight profit margin.
