Ontario to sell alcohol in grocery stores

If you read that headline, like I did, then you're probably assuming Kathleen Wynne's Liberals finally took a sound policy idea and ran with it.

Except that, no, alcohol will not be sold by grocers and corner store owners.  Instead, it will be sold at LCBO "express" locations stationed within grocery stores.

How, exactly, does that end the government alcohol monopoly?  It doesn't.
