Access to Liquor vs. Public Safety
It does have some initial appeal.
More convenient? Without Question.
But how will allowing British Columbians to buy liquor at a supermarket/convenience store impact the issue of drinking and driving?
Will allowing easier access to liquor increase the number of impaired drivers on the roads in B.C.?
The debate is underway.
And if you listen to what MADD ( Mothers Against Drunk Driving) has to say - they're very concerned.
MADD is firmly opposed to allowing liquor to be sold and supermarkets or convenience stores.
They raise the argument that permitting British Columbians to buy alcohol more easily and at a greater number of stores will have a predicatable effect - more impaired drivers.
What are you thoughts on this issue?
What are you in support of?
I'd be curious to find out.
