The president of SAQ — Quebec’s provincial liquor board — has apologized to consumers following a scandal that revealed attempts by two employees to fix the prices of certain European wines. The employees responsible are paying for the mistake with their jobs.

Sylvain Toutant ordered an internal investigation last month over allegations that buyers for the provincial liquor monopoly asked distributors to raise the prices of European wine in a bid to offset the effects of the rising Canadian dollar. The board could then boost its bottom line and avoid reducing the prices charged in liquor stores.
