NDP strive to suspend sales of Russian vodka

New Democrat Cheri DiNovo is expected to table a motion in response to Russia's seizure of Crimea

Watch out Russian booze lovers.
Ontario's NDP wants the province's government-run liquor stores to suspend sales of Russian Standard vodka due to the international crisis in Ukraine.
New Democrat Cheri DiNovo is expected to table a motion Thursday in response to Russia's seizure of Crimea.
Saskatchewan had considered the idea, but nixed it last week.
Premier Brad Wall said stores also carry a brand of Ukrainian vodka and customers can make their own choice on what they want to buy.
Ontario is believed to have the largest population of ethnic Ukrainians in Canada.
