14-year-old Wearing Burka Buys Booze From Canada's National Liquor Store

SUN NEWS: TORONTO – Three liquor stores recently sold booze to a 14-year-old boy whose identity was hidden because he was wearing a full-length burka and face veil at the time, a Sun News Network exclusive has found. The teenager, clad in an Islamic female’s traditional garb of a burka, headscarf and facial covering, shopped in three different LCBO stores north of Toronto last Wednesday. In each location, the Grade 8 student paid cash for a bottle of sambuca liqueur. Ontario’s Liquor Licence Act requires that before liquor is sold, government-issued photo ID — a drivers licence, for example — must be inspected if the buyer is suspected of being under the legal drinking age of 19. Under the LCBO’s Check 25 program, employees can ask for ID from people who appear under age 25 — a policy implemented in 1997 to prevent young people who appear older than their actual age from purchasing alcohol. The stunt was co-ordinated and video recorded by Sun News Network host David Menzies, who has made a career out of lambasting Canada’s politically correct institutions. Menzies said the unopened bottles — totalling just over $80 — were promptly taken from the teen. But Menzies suggested the fact the boy was never asked to uncover his face or show photo identification at multiple store locations reveals a deeply ingrained reluctance on the part of Canadian institutions to challenge cultural practices, even when they conflict with broader societal goals such as preventing underage drinking.
