CBC.ca | This Is That | Quebec Lowers Drinking Age to 14

It's 14... There's already a big drinking problem in Canada, alcohol is basically part of our blood. =p

This is just bad though, bad bad bad.

Yeah, that's the problem here.

I think only Canadians will get what's really going on here. =p

You should see the bar in the town west of mine. Full of "Hillbillies". Most of the 21-24 year old's from the "Big Three", our three towns out in the middle of nowhere, drink there now and they constantly get into it with the old timers. This new group of guys I went to school with is quite rowdy. Many of these guys parents drink there and on occasion It can turn into quite the sight. I've witnessed my fare share of seeing all the "grown-ups" on one side and all the "youngsters" on the other cursing at each other and trying to get the other to throw the first swing. That was usually my time to call it a night... I don't go there anymore. It's just not my thing. LoL

With these kids drinking amongst the elders I can only imagine... God I can only imagine what kind of buisness these bars are going to lose when grown men decide they just can't relax around immature 14 year old's who can't hold their alcohol and only drink because they think it's cool. God, what the heck does a 14 year old have to worry about that they need to drink to help them relax? Ha. :lulz: Tell them to go out and enjoy a joint or two, they don't need to drink regularly yet. Cheers, :beer:

P.S. I can honestly say though, that when I was 14 I would have considered this one a victory... :)

wow, all those teens who will walk into your bars and start talking about how much their life sucks, or how much they "Love" their girlfriend/boyfriend. I feel so sorry for you.

Besides, Quebec has always been fucked up, and everyone knows it. <_

It's not as attractive a thing to do if it's not illegal. A lot of folks believe that lowering the drinking age in a location might actually reduce irresponsible underage drinking.

Alcohol abuse seems to depend on what else is present in your culture. If kids are drinking maybe it's because your local culture is just a retail warren and that's all they've really got left. Or they're stuck in the middle of endless miles of frozen tundra.... =p

Does it really matter? Its not like they're handing 14 year olds alcohol saying "go get wasted". Some 14 year olds drink, some don't, it could help put some off.

In the UK you are legally allowed to drink as much alcohol at the age of 5 as long as you are with the property owner and he/she/they give permission.

Doesn't mean 5 year olds are drinking...

I think it's now the time to point out that this was Canadian media trolling the country, Quebec isn't that stupid.
