As salaam alaikum.

I was curious about the total amount spent on alcohol in Canada. The most recent numbers put out by Statistics Canada show $17,300,000,000.00 was spent in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2006.

That is crazy for a country of just over 30 million people!!!

What is it like where you live?

Ma'as salaama,

I belive the Ontario Govenment is the single largest alcohol purchaser in the world. The Ontario gov't controls where its sold. Its only sold in gov't owned stores (LCBO) and the Beer Store. The gov't rakes in a killing on Booze!!! its taxed beyond anything!
