Purchasing alcohol will become slightly more convenient in Ontario.

Finance Minister Charles Sousa is moving forward with a plan that would see liquor kiosks in grocery stores.

Sousa has an LCBO announcement scheduled for Tuesday and the Globe and Mail has been told that he'll put out Requests for Proposals to the supermarkets.

He will propose that grocery stores interested in having one put forth a request and the government will then make their selections. Only a handful will get an LCBO Express store.

The kiosks are still owned and operated by the government.

The Liberals have repeatedly said they are not in favour of privatizing liquor sales, while PC leader Tim Hudak has envisioned selling off parts of the LCBO.
