Ontario is probably a bigger market and and easier shipping. We only have the government run LCBO. So they ship to one place, Toronto and their distributor puts it around. Probably a little more cost effective.

Also Ontario prices their beer super stupid. Instead of pricing it based on margins, they price it based on what their perception of the price should be in the market and work it backwards. So they could essentially pay more to a wholesaler than the beer is originally priced at in order to work into their pricing scheme.

Yeah, I love the LCBO
