TORONTO - Watch out Russian booze lovers.

Ontario's NDP wants the province's government-run liquor stores to suspend sales of Russian Standard vodka due to the international crisis in Ukraine.

New Democrat Cheri DiNovo is expected to table a motion today in response to Russia's seizure of Crimea.

Saskatchewan had considered the idea, but nixed it last week.

Premier Brad Wall said stores also carry a brand of Ukrainian vodka and customers can make their own choice on what they want to buy.

Ontario is believed to have the largest population of ethnic Ukrainians in Canada.

    Did the ONDP call for a boycott of goods from countries involved in Iraq and Afghanistan? Pathetic.
