Alex, a former mayor of Walden, Inco employee and sports star in his youth, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s eight years ago.  “I look at him sometimes, and I think you're such an intelligent man, what happened?” she said. “He was in politics, he was in real estate.

Wine, beer, ready-to-drink booze coming sooner to more Ontario stores

The Ford government is speeding up its plans to get wine, beer, and ready-to-drink alcoholic beverages into grocery and corner stores. As of Aug. 1, grocery stores currently licensed to sell beer, cider, or wine will also be able to sell ready-to-drink beverages and offer larger pack sizes. After Sept. 5, eligible convenience stores will be able to sell beer, cider, wine and ready-to-drink alcoholic beverages, and after Oct. 31, all eligible grocery and big-box stores will be able to sell beer, cider, wine and ready-to-drink beverages, including in large pack sizes.
