Taking wine ban to court?

The B.C. Wine Institute is considering legal action against the Alberta government, as British Columbia wineries begin to feel the effect of Alberta’s B.C. wine boycott.

Institute president Miles Prodan says the boycott is having “an immediate, direct effect on a number of small wineries” in the Okanagan and elsewhere in B.C.

He says the situation for some of those smaller operations is “becoming dire,” with many of their wine stocks in Alberta completely depleted.

Prodan says there are “a few paths” the institute is considering, including a dispute mechanism through the Canadian Free Trade agreement.

For more on the institute's plans, including why Prodan says the boycott will have effects long after it is lifted, check out the full story on Castanet's sister business news website, Okanagan Edge.
