This is a great example of citizen engagement in building a well-structured API for a [Canadian] government agency. Built by @heycarsten.

I am from Ontario. This is cool. Would love to see a local "Uber for Alcohol" now with the LCBO managing inventory.

@joshbarkin given the number of "Uber for Alcohol" apps that already exist in the states, I'm sure someone either working on it, or is about to. :)

Wow, this is incredibly progressive for the LCBO. My family is from Ontario and when I compare the liquor laws there against what we have here in Western Australia it astounds me. Kudos LCBO.

Just thought I'd mention that this is a 100% grassroots effort. To date the LCBO has had no involvement or even given acknowledgment of its existence.
