Ontario’s Beer Store shouldn’t get ‘monopoly for free,’ TD Bank CEO says

Ontario should force the multinational cartel that owns the Beer Store to pay the province more money in exchange for its lucrative monopoly, a government panel is set to recommend.

“We’re saying to the Beer Store: You’re not getting this monopoly for free,” TD Bank CEO Ed Clark, who is leading the panel, told The Globe and Mail. “It’s clearly more profitable to [the Beer Store] to have this monopoly than to not have it…so now let’s figure out what we’re going to extract from it.”
