On December 6 and 7, the Supreme Court of Canada will begin hearing the GĂ©rard Comeau case. The CVA is an intervenor in the Comeau case, and sees this case as the best chance for tearing down barriers to trade and allowing direct-to-consumer shipping of Canadian wines. "This is essential. Opening the direct-to-consumer channel will provide greater choice for the consumer, support the growth of the Canadian wine industry, create jobs and stimulate economic growth. It will increase sales for every winery in Canada and bring our industry into the 21st century"
