QUEBEC — The Quebec government will move to ban sales of sugary, high-alcohol beverages in convenience and grocery stores.
Public Security Minister Martin Coiteux will introduce an amendment to his bill seeking to modernize the province’s alcohol and gaming legislation.
The new rules would apply to beverages that contain more than seven per cent alcohol and make them available only at Quebec liquor commission outlets.
The measure would come into effect after the law is adopted by the end of the current parliamentary session in June.
