Book Spotlight - May 2019

Posted by Peel Law Association on 16 May 2019

Continue to watch this space for promotions highlighting one of the books recently added to the PLA Library collection, as well as old favourites we think may be of interest to our PLA Library users.

Today's spotlight is on the book, Liquor Laws of Canada by Donald J. Bourgeois and Craig Slater. This text was recently added to the PLA Library Collection and is available for borrowing by current PLA Members.

 

Published: November 09, 2018 by LexisNexis

According to the authors of this new publication, the "driving factors for the liquor laws of Canada are two-fold": the first is the need to exert control over the manufacture, sale and consumption of liquor in the interests of public safety, and the second is raising revenue through, for instance, taxes from that manufacture, sale and consumption to subsidize government services. Liquor Laws of Canada examines both of these aspects of the provincial and federal legislation that regulates the Canadian liquor industry.
 

From the Table of Contents

Chapter 1: Introduction Constitutional context
Chapter 2: Federal regulation Public safety and revenue generation
Chapter 3: Provincial liquor distribution
Chapter 4: Manufacturing
Chapter 5: Sell or serve The laws of public sale and consumption of liquor in Canada
