MADD Canada Statement on Ontario’s Proposed Buck a Beer Policy

Oakville, ON (MADD Canada) Lowering the price of alcohol carries implications and risks for public safety. Lower alcohol prices can lead to increased consumption, particularly among those with alcohol problems, and among young people, and that increased consumption can in turn lead to increased alcohol-related problems, including impaired driving. The impact extends beyond the price of a beer. There should not be any government tax incentives to reduce the cost of alcohol.
