Provinces get poor grades in first-ever report card

Restaurants Canada (RC) give report cards on provincial liquor policies. New Brunswick gets the worst grade in Maritimes with a C-. RC say "With some political will, the province’s modest wholesale pricing program could expand for the better. Consumers would benefit from more competition and choice and N.B.’s “C-“could improve".  In NB Restaurant patrons can’t stand when consuming beer, wine or spirits.
NS did slightly better with a C+. In NS there are 105 "dry" areas  and licensed establishments can’t serve drinks unless they have a full, working kitchen. 
PEI liquor policies got the tops in the Maritimes with a B-. They say "The Gentle Island is working to get it right, but product selection is still an issue.". Apparently it’s illegal to use vulgar or profane language in a licensed establishment on the Island.
