Media Advisory - OPSEU LCBO members to hold "Keep It Public" information pickets across Toronto and Mississauga

Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, Dec. 7, 2018 /CNW/ - LCBO workers will be holding information pickets at a variety of LCBO locations in Toronto and Mississauga today and tomorrow to give shoppers the chance to tell government to keep the LCBO public.

By visiting, people can send an email to their MPP and Premier Doug Ford urging them to keep the LCBO public.

The LCBO has a long, successful history of selling alcohol responsibly while returning billions in profits to public coffers. Recent public opinion research shows that Ontarians are 12 times more likely to say the LCBO does a better job than private retailers at keeping alcohol out of the hands of kids.
