Ontario to loosen liquor laws
This isn’t directly Niagara Falls-related, but it will affect some different festivals that are held here, especially the big New Year’s Eve party.
From the Niagara Falls Review:
A beer outside a designated beer tent? An extra hour of drinking at a wedding reception? These new freedoms are just around the corner.
Ontario has changed its alcohol laws in a move Premier Dalton McGuinty’s Liberal government says will create jobs and strengthen the economy.
Announced Friday, the relaxed restrictions kick in on June 1.
Among the new rules, drinking will be allowed outside of beer tents at festivals and events.
“Local communities are free to customize the events to their needs,” said a government news release.
