Ontario Opposition Party Members Call for Banning All RUSSIAN Alcoholic Products From LCBO Shelves

Risking world war, madman Putin unleashes deadly force on a free and democratic Ukraine

“Watching what’s happening in Ukraine is absolutely heartbreaking. Families are scrambling for safety, young men and women are being forced to take up arms to defend their country from a dangerous invader, and many are grabbing what they can to flee the country. …. Remove all Russian made products from (LCBO) until this Russian aggression ends. … Ontario and the LCBO can’t say it’s truly standing with Ukraine while continuing to be Putin’s customer.”                                                                                                      – Ontario Liberal Party Leader Steven Del Duca

Ontario opposition MPPs call on province to remove all Russian alcoholic products from LCBO shelves

“It is with a heavy heart that I reach out to you on behalf of the large Ukrainian-Canadian community across Niagara, and the Ukrainian Canadian Congress – Niagara Branch, to call on the LCBO to remove all Russian products from their shelves immediately, as a sign of solidarity, strength and support to all Ukrainian residents of Ontario and across Niagara.”                                           – St. Catharines NDP MPP Jennie Stevens

TORONTO – Steven Del Duca, Leader of the Ontario Liberal Party, is calling on the LCBO to pull all Russian alcohol from its shelves in response to Vladimir Putin’s illegal invasion of Ukraine. Del Duca wrote to  LCBO President and CEO Dr. George Soleas requesting swift action to ensure the province is doing everything it can to send a clear message to the Russian leader his aggression will not be tolerated.

“Our allies in Ukraine are under attack by Russia and need our help,” stated Del Duca. “Pulling Russian vodka from the shelves of the LCBO is an immediate action Ontario can take to demonstrate our solidarity with the people of Ukraine.”

Hello Russia. Stop Putin and his war or get your vodka out of our LCBO stores.

The LCBO is among the largest alcohol purchasers in the world and their shelves hold a number of popular Russian beverages and spirits. Banning the sale of these products will prevent any further money from going to Russia during their illegal invasion.

“I appreciate the financial support Ontario has already offered to Ukraine in their fight against Russia, and I hope the LCBO will consider this measure as another way to restrict Russia’s trade,” added Del Duca. “We need to do everything we can to support our allies against the murderous dictator that has invaded Ukraine.” To see the Ontario Liberal Party leader’s letter on this matter, click on – (https://ontarioliberal.ca/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/Letter-from-Steven-Del-Duca.pdf?utm_source=CONTACTS&utm_campaign=491a2d2872-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2020_07_23_10_12_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_b998ab3b15-491a2d2872-156673792) .

  1. A footnote from Doug Draper, Niagara At Large – Ban or no ban from the government, please consider not buying anything that says ‘Made in Russia’ or ‘Product of Russia’ on it until the good people of Russia rise up and throw Putin out of office.
