NDP want to know if LCBO is for sale?

Timiskaming-Cochrane MPP John Vanthof wants the Liberals to admit they won’t sell the LCBO.   Vanthof says the Premier once said Hydro One wasn’t for sale and now it’s partially owned by the private sector.

He’s worried that the same thing will happen to the LCBO.  Vanthof says the LCBO makes money that goes back into programs and he doesn’t want to see history repeat itself with the sale of a government-owned asset.

Finance minister Charles Sousa said point blank that the LCBO is not for sale and that the Liberals intend on expanding its reach.  Sousa said that’s despite a desire from Warren “Smokey” Thomas the union president of OPSEU who wants the LCBO sold to the private sector so the labour group can buy part of the organization.
