REMINDER: The LCBO strike deadline is tonight at midnight.
The LCBO and the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) have until 12:01am TONIGHT to come to an agreement, otherwise we could see a strike starting tomorrow.
According to the Canadian Press, a media blackout is in effect, and the two sides have been working “around the clock” to come to an agreement and avoid a strike. However, the LCBO is recommending that you stock up just in case negotiations don’t work out.
Many Ontarians are reacting with…well, panic.

I'm so embarrassed to have been one of the first people at LCBO this morning... I swear I'm not an alcoholic— Pvigeninjv (@falloutpvige) June 25, 2017
Others have a nice, calming reminder for us.
