The number of liquor stores opening across Canada rose in the first half of 2017, but as of March 30, the pace has slowed.

The National Retail Federation’s (NRF) annual survey of retailing activity showed that a whopping 21,800 retail establishments have opened in Canada, down from 22,700 in 2016.

This is down from 23,100 establishments opening in the same period in 2017.

The National Beverage Association (NBBA) noted that in 2017, “alcoholic beverage sales fell to their lowest level since the 1970s.”

This comes amid a boom in the craft spirits sector, with liquor brands selling well.

While craft spirits have been growing at a strong clip, it has also brought new competition to the industry.

In fact, in 2017 the number of craft spirits stores expanded by 10% compared to 2016, the NBBA reported.

In Canada, alcohol consumption is expected to continue to rise, with some people claiming that the number is already at a record high.

“It’s clear that we’re not doing our job to support the consumer in this country and our job is to encourage more people to try new things,” says Robert Wainwright, president of the NBSA.

Wainwright argues that alcohol consumption should not be a barrier to trying new experiences.

“The majority of our customers want to try the new stuff,” he said.

However, not everyone agrees.

According to a report from the International Monetary Fund, alcohol sales in the U.S. and Canada have been declining in recent years, with sales down 16% and 20%, respectively.

This is a troubling trend for some people, as alcohol consumption in the world’s largest economy is expected increase.

One such person is Samir Ali, founder of the Canadian Alcohol Research Centre (CARD).

“It’s becoming clear that the Canadian consumer is in an increasingly vulnerable position,” Ali said in an interview with CBC News.

“As a result, alcohol-related harms are growing.”

According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), alcohol-impaired driving killed more people in 2016 than traffic accidents and motor vehicle crashes combined.

In 2017, the number was estimated at 1.5 million.

With an estimated 20 million Canadians estimated to be addicted to alcohol, the country’s current level of consumption could be devastating.

According the UNODC, the majority of Canadians drink at least once a week.

“It means we are consuming the equivalent of five alcoholic drinks per day,” said Ali.

“That’s one drink every six minutes.

It’s something that is destroying our society.”

The rise of the craft industry in CanadaThe increase in the number and volume of craft-focused restaurants and bars has been a boon for retailers.

According a study by the Royal Canadian Mint, about 60% of Canadian bars are owned and operated by the craft beer and cider industry.

These are the same industries that have seen a surge in growth and consumption, and have seen the growth of their respective craft beer brands.

But while the craft sector has become more prominent, it’s not all about beer and ciders.

More than 50% of beer and wine drinkers in Canada are women, according to the NRF.

Women are also more likely to buy wine, and they are more likely than men to buy spirits.

To combat this trend, the NRBAA has launched a new campaign called “The Power of Women” aimed at educating women on how to be better wine drinkers.

According this campaign, women are more than capable of appreciating a glass of wine or cider, but they’re often not aware of the choices available to them.

These women can learn more about the wines and spirits available in their area, and get more out of their purchase.

In 2017, Canada also saw the opening of craft restaurants.

Many of these are open to all genders, but there are also a few that cater specifically to men.

These include The Greenhouse and The Bar, which offer wine tasting, cocktails and beer on tap.

It’s not just women who are opening up new outlets, but also men.

In 2018, women’s rights activist, Naomi Klein, launched her own company called Klein Collective, which is focused on opening a range of new business to help women.

Klein Collective is not only creating new business opportunities, but creating a space for women to come together, as well as help each other succeed.

“In many cases, women have found it easier to get to know each other online, so it’s easier to connect and collaborate,” she told CBC News in an email.

A new Canadian wine and spirits festivalThe launch of this new festival, called the Canadian Wine and Spirits Festival (CWSF), is a major milestone for the Canadian wine industry.

The CWSF is designed to “celebrate, celebrate, celebrate” and bring the best of Canadian wine to the Canadian palate.

“To be able to do this is really
