Canadian Liquor Consumption on the Rise, Eh?
We got some not-so-shocking news from the Great White North today that Canadian alcohol sales rose last year.
"Canadians bought more beer, wine and spirits last year, but the growth in alcohol sales slowed slightly, Statistics Canada reported Thursday. In total, Canada's beer and liquor stores and agencies sold more than $16.1 billion worth of alcoholic beverages during the fiscal year ending March 31, 2004, up 4.9 per cent from the year before."
The article goes on to say that while the sales are up, the growth has slowed down overall as compared to the year before. Hey, we're not judging - we grew up in VT, so we know what those long, cold winters are like when there's not much else to do but have a couple beers and some back bacon. All we can say is, "Bottoms up, you hosers!"
