I remember when the Conservative position was to ban gambling and booze -- times change:
Tory Leader Tim Hudak is calling for the province to get out of the day-to-day gaming business and, Tuesday, he is expected to call for it to also get out of the booze trade.
According to a Progressive Conservative insider, his announcement is one of several this week pointing to a hard-right turn by the Tories to emphasize the difference between the PCs and the Liberals.
“I am having a press conference tomorrow (Tuesday) around the future of retailing alcohol in our province,” Hudak told reporters Monday.
Hudak insisted there are “billions of dollars tied up in government-run businesses that we really don’t need to be in anymore in 2012 and beyond.”
