Picture this

Picture the scene. It is Christmas Day and the turkey is on the table, roast spuds and all the trimmings, crackers to be pulled, party hats all round. You have a large bottle of D'Aquino Pinot Grigio delle Venezie chilling in the fridge, purchased at Ontario's scrooge-like monopoly, the LCBO. Time to pull a cork as the party gets started. What is this? The wine turns out to be water. Some civil servant forgot to check the contents and you've been had. No chance of buying a replacement - a monopoly opens to suit itself - not the customer. Cheers and Happy Christmas everybody!
