This video was released to promote the party’s 2011 election plank: Alcoholic Beverages: Wider Selection, Lower Prices, Shopping Convenience.

Selection – Transcript: “This is Crystal Head vodka: a premium vodka made in Canada. This is Smash Bomb Atomic IPA: a premium ale brewed in Barrie, Ontario. For reasons of political correctness, you cannot buy these products in L.C.B.O. stores. A Freedom government will allow other stores to open and sell even the products that the L.C.B.O. refuses to sell. A wider selection for adults: Freedom Party.”

Price – Transcript: “In Ontario today, it is against the law to sell a bottle of beer for less than $1.08. It is also against the law to sell a bottle of liquor for less than $22.80. The L.C.B.O. dictates the price of all alcoholic beverages, even at The Beer Store. A Freedom government will eliminate Minimum Pricing laws. Every store will be free to compete for your business by lowering their prices. Lower Prices: Freedom Party.”

Convenience – Transcript: “You’re at the 24 hour grocery store. Your friends are coming over for dinner in a few minutes, but you have no wine or beer to offer them. You check your watch. The liquor store and The Beer Store are both closed. With a Freedom government, this will never happen again. If you are an adult, you’ll be able to buy wine or beer in a grocery store, or in a convenience store, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Convenience, from Freedom Party.”
