By law, the maximum amount of alcohol that can be legally imported into New Brunswick from another province is one bottle of wine or hard liquor, or 12 pints of beer, which is approximately 24 bottles or cansSuppose I am fortunate and win say a mid 5 figure prize in the lotto. I decide to host a modest house party to mark my good fortune, my treat. The alcohol shopping list for such an event might look like this.
- 4 flats of beer
- 2 quarts of rum
- quart of whiskey
- quart of vodka
- 30 wine coolers
- 4 bottles of Hochtaler
This is tyranny. This law is an attack on the peaceful, law abiding New Brunswick freeman. All this does is allow the cops to ignore real crime, avoid confrontation with actual hard criminals, and instead pick on soft middle class targets like "cross border" shoppers within Canada.
Why does the legislature allow it to stand in this form? Who exactly voted this into law? Why doesn't the media and opposition grill the minister every single day about this? What happened to the Constitution and economic union and illegal interprovincial trade barriers.
