Premier Doug Ford’s Ontario government is planning to expand the sale of alcohol to corner stores.

The government has released a survey to obtain people’s opinions and plan to release the findings in spring 2019.

The surveyis open until February 1.

Premier Ford has already implemented the buck-a-beer program and has expanded the hours when alcohol can be sold (9 a.m. to 11 p.m.), to align with Ontario’s private retail recreational cannabis stores.
