MONTREAL – If you’re shopping for your favourite wine or alcohol this week, you may notice that prices are up at the SAQ.


According to the liquor commission, prices on about 200 wines and alcohols are going up due to the weak Canadian dollar – that’s about 17 per cent of products.

That means a bottle of wine that used to cost $15 will now cost about 65 cents more.

The price hike will also affect bars and restaurants, as their costs are going up as well.
