Liquor board cracks down on wine auctions
Just this week, the Belfry Theatre in Victoria was forced to cancel its fine wine auction fundraiser.
The Liquor Control Branch issued them a letter, prohibiting the theatre company from auctioning any wine that hadn't been directly purchased from the province.
That includes all wines donated direct from wineries or individual collectors.
John Skinner is the owner of Painted Rock Estate Winery in Penticton, and has donated to the Belfry's annual event for the past three years.
He tells Daybreak Host Chris Walker the move is laughable and the province needs to get with the times.
