D-Day for C-Stores Today
Today is the last day convenience stores can legally show you smokes on a wall before you can buy them. As of midnight tonight, smokers will have to thumb through a binder, like they were about to purchase adult movies, in order to get their smokes.
Unless, of course, you’re driving down to the Native reserves, where they have been illegally selling smokes for years. Without ID or even clearly underage, Native smoke shops will sell anyone any smokes, and other goods; legal or not. So when you have to go through your binder tomorrow to ask for those Number 7 King Size; Remember to thank your Premier for making you feel like you’re buying a porn DVD. And is the Ministry of Health enforcing the same rules on Native shops? Of course not. Welcome to McGuinty’s Ontario.
