Letter of the Day
Editor: Shaun Fantauzzo wrote an excellent opinion piece with the facts and figures about the operation of the P.E.I. Liquor Control Commission. Their 2012-2013 annual report said cash transfers and sales tax revenues grew by 3.2 per cent which represented
the best year ever had by the commission.
The increase was totally supplied by the private agency stores opened up the previous year because the 19 provincially owned and operated stores saw a 5.5 per cent drop in sales for that year.
It’s obvious to a blind person that government should replace their stores with private agency stores all across P.E.I. because this is what the public wants.
The PEILCC is a goldmine and profits will soar if retail sales are left to private agency stores because they know how to provide good service and how to make more money for Island taxpayers.
