Government employing minors to catch out liquor license operators.

On September 8th the Liquor Control and licensing Branch of British Columbia released a press release stating that it has new tactics in catching those liquor store operators selling to minors.

 

Sounds a little like entrapment to me. But here’s how the Article goes. 

 

They are claiming to have stepped up their game from sending in one minor (employed by the Liquor Control and Licensing Brach) whom would go in by themselves and try to purchase alcohol. Too now sending in a team (all employed by the LCLB) which can be one minor and two adults, however they like really. In this case it may be the adult of the minor who orders the alcohol (this one could be tricky).

 

With only a 28% compliance rate, and most of the sales to minors happening in Food Primary or Liquor Primary establishments, they are getting more than one in four of you. Be careful.
