BC government will tweak liqour laws for charity auctions

October 26, 2012

The provincial government is making what it calls a common-sense change to liquor policy to allow charities to auction off gift baskets that contain some alcoholic products.

Minister responsible Rich Coleman says the current rules are out of date.

“I don’t think even when the law was probably written people were as much into wine and collection of wine as they were when it was written 30 to 40 years ago so I am just going to fix it.”

But for the time being, charities will only be able to auction items that include some alcohol.

Coleman says legislation will have to be changed to allow booze-only auctions, and that will have to wait until the spring.
