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
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.
