Brewpubs' Eligibility to Apply for Listings to Sell Product Off-site
Regulatory Impact StatementMicroform - 2000
A recent decision by the British Columbia Supreme Court found that there is no legislative basis to preclude brewpubs from applying for a listing that would allow them to sell their products off-site. This impact statement addresses the impacts arising from the decision to allow off-site sale of brewpub products. Issues discussed include: whether the problem is correctly defined and government action justified; whether regulation is the best form of government action; the best regulatory approach; the legal basis for provincial regulatory policy; the appropriate level of government for the action; whether benefits of regulatory policy justify the costs, taking into account consumer, fiscal, and business impacts; the impact on provincial competitiveness; clarity, consistency, comprehension, and access of the policy; and whether all parties have an opportunity to present their views.
