Yukon again tops in alcohol sales per capita
Newfoundland and Labrador 2nd, N.W.T. and Nunavut a close 3rd
Yukon led the nation again last year in per capita alcohol sales, according to Statistics Canada.
In 2012-13, sales amounted to $1,332.10 for every Yukoner.
Sales were also high across the North - at $954.40 per capita in the N.W.T. and Nunavut.
Newfoundland and Labrador actually had the second highest sales in the country at $981.40 per capita.
Overall, Canadians bought $733.70 of alcohol per capita.
Statistics Canada says the Yukon numbers are heavily influenced by the hundreds of thousands of tourists visiting a territory that only has a population of just under 37,000 people.
Beer was tops in sales for Yukon and Nunavut, while spirits narrowly edged out beer in N.W.T.
