Premier Kathleen Wynne was caught a little off guard on Monday when asked about the content of ads for Trailer Park Boys inspired whiskey drinks.
At a presser to introduce more affordable parking at Ontario hospitals, Wynne was asked what she thought of the cocktail recipes which recommend mixing drinking with marijuana and hash.
“I didn’t know about this” said the Premier. “None of that sounds particularly savory to me, so….um. and…ah..and dangerous in a lot of ways to me”
Wynne says the province will investigate.
The Ontario launch for Liquorman’s “Ol’ Dirty Canadian Whiskey”, already sold in several other provinces, is set for Thursday in Toronto and will feature live appearances from two of the “Trailer Park Boys” Ricky and Bubbles.
The hooch has caught the attention and concern of many over it’s use of the f-word and advice to start drinking before 10 a.m.
Liquor adverting is subject to guidelines from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission laws, and federal labeling rules for products sold on store shelves.
