Says it would send signal over seizure of Crimea

TORONTO - Watch out Russian booze lovers.

Ontario's NDP wants the province's government-run liquor stores to suspend sales of Russian Standard vodka due to the international crisis in Ukraine.

New Democrat Cheri DiNovo is expected to table a motion today in response to Russia's seizure of Crimea.

Saskatchewan had considered the idea, but nixed it last week.

Premier Brad Wall said stores also carry a brand of Ukrainian vodka and customers can make their own choice on what they want to buy.

Ontario is believed to have the largest population of ethnic Ukrainians in Canada.
