Our publicly-run liquor stores help keep our families and communities safe. SLGA is committed to selling alcohol in a socially-responsible manner. Public liquor store workers check IDs of anyone who looks 25 years or younger. The government has licensed private wine stores in Regina and Saskatoon, opening the door to further privatization of liquor sales.
