Dear Restaurant and Bar Operator,

Thanks to your efforts, momentum is building to stop the annual increase in excise tax on alcohol. We need to step up our efforts and make sure concerned Canadians make their voices heard before it’s too late.

This has to happen quickly. The government wants to finish discussing the budget bill soon. We need your participation now!
