Guignard's group, the Alliance of Beverage Licensees, gave restauranteurs a much-needed boost during trying times.
Ask any British Columbian who makes their living as a restaurateur: pre-COVID, the province was among the most repressive jurisdictions around when it came to making a buck from selling booze. The sight of a local owner lining up with everyone else to buy stock for their restaurant at full retail price was a pretty common event at liquor store tills across the region. But in the depths of the pandemic came a rare ray of light to the industry: the provincial government agreed to allow restaurants to buy wine, beer and liquor at wholesale prices (just like in every other province in Canada).
The decision was a lifeline and it came about as a result of years of lobbying efforts from Guignard and his group, the Alliance of Beverage Licensees (ABLE BC). And not only did the policy change give restaurants a boost during the hard times of the pandemic, it will continue to pay dividends to the still-struggling industry for years to come. And for the rest of us? It also might mean that a bottle of brunello can come to our table at a slightly more reasonable price point.
