Statistics Canada says that as usual, beer was by far the most popular beverage in terms of dollar value, capturing 50.7 per cent of sales compared with 24.7 per cent for spirits and 24.6 per cent for wine.
In a report on sales for the fiscal year ending March 31 last year, the agency says beer and liquor stores and agencies sold more than $16.1 billion worth of the beverages, up 4.9 per cent from the year before.
Now that comes as a surprise doesn't?
Who would have thought that Canadians, the same people who garner their cultural identity from beer commercials, enjoy beer!
Nice to see those Canadian tax dollars working hard.
