OTTAWA, Quebec -- Home delivery of pizza, chicken and Chinese foods in Quebec can include alcohol beginning Dec. 20.
According to the Canadian Broadcasting Company, the government is allowing restaurants that deliver -- and also have liquor licenses -- to deliver beer, wine and coolers.
The National Assembly passed the changes to the province's liquor laws this week. The law states that alcoholic beverages must be sold at the same price charged at the restaurant. A case of 24 beers could cost $60 to deliver (U.S. $38.75).
Restaurants can deliver alcohol between 8 a.m. and 11 p.m.
Delivery drivers are responsible for checking customers' ages.
The new service is not available to Ontario residents as the law prohibits the sale of alcohol across provincial borders.
