Thanks to OPSEU/SEFPO members’ strong opposition to 7-Eleven’s scheme to sell alcohol for consumption in more than 60 convenience stores across the province, a government tribunal is now involved.
Some OPSEU/SEFPO members who filed formal objections with the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) about 7-Eleven are now being invited by the Licence Appeal Tribunal (LAT) to talk about their objections in videoconferences being held over Zoom.
If their objections can’t be resolved during these videoconferences, the next step could be a formal hearing.
If you’ve been invited to one of these meetings, OPSEU/SEFPO is here to help. The LBED Anti-Privatization Committee has been working hard to research the applications and prepare notes for the meetings.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and you’ll provided with the materials and support you need to take part in the meeting.
The research on private alcohol sales is clear:
- It increases the damage alcohol does to people and family in our communities
- It reduces Ontario’s productivity
- It increases the costs of our public services
- It reduces the billions in government revenue generated every year by the LCBO
