The government of BC will be modernizing laws regarding alcohol. Changes include:
* minors would be allowed into establishments that primarily serve liquor, for example pubs and legions, up until a certain time.
* Happy hours would also be permitted, although drinks would be subject to minimum pricing
* customers in restaurants or bars which primarily serve food would not be required to order food with their drinks.
* Customers would also be allowed to move freely with their alcoholic drinks from one adjoining licensed area to another — for example, between a summer patio and an indoor section of the pub.
The government says they are planning to implement at least these out of 70 recommendations presented to the government.
