    Another record in sales and Each year you hear of more people getting caught driving while impaired. Is this just a coincidence?

    Some sell addictive drugs on the street, some have a office and call it a job. And its a lucky thing that these people don't really have to work in order to make a profit. At all. Keep your taxes. Next thing they'll be taking a 50 cent worth package of smokes and selling it for 10 or 11 dollars. They don't care if it affects canadians. Then people wonder why there's organized crime. Its all around us. We are the living proof of a society cut from that same fabric.

    I would like to congratulate Mr. Winter on his well managed company. The NLC stores are a pleasure to shop in. Their attractive lay-out and polite, friendly staff should be an example to many other poorly run, badly organized retail outlets. As it is a crown corporation, the profits from the NLC are put back into the province. The previous comments made by Taxpayer from NL are evidently those of a narrow-minded teetotaler, who is using this forum merely to spread anti-drinking propaganda.

    Remember when the NLC put millions into renovations of all their stores in the St. John's area ? Yep, shortly later they closed some down and put brand new ones in different locations. You know the era, when office furniture was top of the line at NLC??? Silly Willy from centre city in the 1960's could have made profits as CEO from that Crown Corporation. WANT A FREE BUZZZ????? Go to any NLC store on a Fri ...... Awe you guys know the end of that sentence. Some things never change and this thing never will!! Thank God the Prov. determines how much profit they demand the Corporation turn over for their general revenue pot. RECORD SALES AGAIN??? DUUUUUUUUUUU THIS PROVINCE IS STARTING TO BOOOOM!!!!HARDLY SURPRISING . CHEERS!!!!

    The profit of the NLC is indirectly set by the provincial budget. The corporation must make a certain minimium payment to the province. This then leads back to the profit of the corporation. Winter suggests that they have increased sales by customer service and selling at comparable prices to other provinces. I believe we have seen what happens to people who have brought any amount of liquor from other provinces. As to volume of sales, I remember when purchasers were given a book and a limit to the number of bottles one could buy per week. Mr. Winter should be seen as a politician as that is exactly how his report comes across. Finally I see liquor as merely a legal form of drug and with the anti drinking programs on the go today his sucess is actually a form of failure.
