  Two-thirds of Winnipeggers support safe injection site, poll suggests The Tory government says Winnipeg may not be the right place for a safe injection site for intravenous drug use, and that puts them at odds with the majority of Winnipeggers, a new poll suggests. Of the 600 participants in a recent Probe Research poll commissioned by the Winnipeg Free Press, 69 per cent said they are "generally in favour of a safe injection site." The remaining 31 per cent were opposed. For comparison purposes only, a probability sample of the same size would typically yield a margin of error of  +/- 4 percentage points, 19 times our of 20.

WINNIPEG - Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister is asking his colleagues to eliminate restrictions on interprovincial booze runs.

In advance of next week's premiers meeting in New Brunswick, Pallister has written a letter to other provincial leaders outlining his priorities.

In the letter obtained by The Canadian Press, Pallister says the provinces should remove their limits on interprovincial transportation of alcohol for personal use.

He says the idea has broad public support, and would show progress in the effort to reduce inter-provincial barriers on other items.

In April, the Supreme Court upheld a New Brunswick law that fined a man $240 for bringing home a trunk load of beer and liquor from Quebec.

The high court said provinces have the power to enact laws that restrict commerce if there is another overriding purpose, which in New Brunswick's case was the desire to control the supply of alcohol within the province.

Pallister's letter says the premiers should adopt a recommendation to reduce alcohol restrictions from an advisory body called the Regulatory Reconciliation and Co-operation table, set up under the Canada Free Trade Agreement.

"In particular, the recommendation regarding a personal use exemption will address long-standing concerns regarding the transportation of alcoholic beverages across domestic borders by significantly increasing personal-use limits," Pallister wrote.

"I suggest we consider going further by fully removing those limits, a move strongly supported by Canadians from every region of the country."

Pallister also points to other items that are subject to interprovincial barriers including trucking regulations such as size and weight restrictions, abbatoirs and business registration requirements.

"The Bank of Canada has estimated that removing existing trade barriers could raise real GDP by the equivalent of approximately $1,500 per year. Viewed from that perspective, the costs of inaction are high."

The premiers meeting, which runs July 18 to July 20, will cover a variety of topics including Indigenous issues and inter-city buses.

Alberta's Rachel Notley wants to find some replacement for Greyhound bus routes that are being ended across Western Canada at the end of October.

"I will be raising this issue at the Council of the Federation with a view to working on common solutions with my fellow premiers and the federal government to ensure western Canadians — particularly those living in rural areas, including many Indigenous communities — have access to the transportation services they deserve," Notley said in a written statement Wednesday.

Pallister said he hopes private firms will step forward to fill the void — one firm in northern Ontario has already announced plans to expand westward. He said government subsidies will not be the answer.

"The companies that take the subsidies tend to run out as soon as the subsidy runs out."

Doug Ford's first premiers' meeting more cordial than confrontational .
Opinions varied on what role Doug Ford might play when he gathered with other premiers at the Council of the Federation. In the end, he lit no fireworks, appearing eager to meet new friends instead. Would the new Ontario premier want to make a big splash? Or hang back at his first summer premiers' meeting, listening and strategizing?
