A Little Bit of Canadiana

Canadian shocker: Beer is booze of choice

When it comes to spending bucks on booze, beer wins hands down in Canada.

Statistics Canada says that as usual, beer was by far the most popular beverage in terms of dollar value, capturing 50.7 per cent of sales compared with 24.7 per cent for spirits and 24.6 per cent for wine.

I know. Meanwhile, meds desperately needed by cancer patients or other patients aren't funded, and this is just one example.

Cavan, it's high time us Canadians also started complaining about our gov't and taxes around here too.

Hear, hear!
