Alberta CRFA members watching today's budget closely

EDMONTON, Feb. 9, 2012 /CNW/ - In addition to being concerned over the potential impact of the .05 BAC provisions of Bill 26, licensed members of the Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association (CRFA) are worried about rumours that government will increase liquor taxes in today's budget.

CRFA spoke out against a potential liquor tax hike after the idea was raised several weeks ago. "We will be watching today's budget closely to ensure government does not pile on additional costs to licensed Alberta hospitality industry proprietors who are already concerned about the potential negative impact of the .05 BAC provisions of Bill 26," said Mark von Schellwitz, CRFA's Vice President Western  Canada.

CRFA also continues to work with government to minimize the potential impact on licensed establishments when .05 BAC provisions are implemented later this year.
