neilio42: Anybody who steals shiat, drinks the shiat, and dies because the shiat is poison... well, we are probably better off without him.Sorry for his family/friends, but I have no sympathy for him.

iserlohn: Anybody with any legal knowledge know that this is pretty standard example of negligence and vicarious liability. If you don't know what that mean, look it up on wikipedia.
pyrotek85: doglover: Windshield washer fluid is sold in many formulations, and some may require dilution before being applied, although most solutions available in North America come premixed with no diluting required. The most common washer fluid solutions are given labels such as "All-Season", "Bug Remover", or "De-icer", and usually are a combination of solvents with a detergent. Dilution factors will vary depending on season, for example in winter the dilution factor may be 1:1, whereas during summer the dilution factor may be 1:10. It is sometimes sold as sachet of crystals, which is also diluted with water. Distilled water is the preferred diluent, since it will not leave trace mineral deposits on the glass.Anti-freeze, or methylated spirits, may be added to a mixture to give the product a lower freezing temperature. But methanol vapor is harmful when breathed in, so more popular now is an ethanol winter mix, e.g. PAV[clarification needed], water, ethanol (or isopropanol), and ethylene glycol.So yeah, it probably had enough alcohol in it that he didn't notice he was also drinking poisonous solvents.But aside from taste, my question is would he even get drunk off of it? If not and it just made him sick, wouldn't he suspect something was up?
shiattynick: When I first visited Canada, I went to get some beer after work to take back to my hotel. I visited a couple of convenience stores with no beer, so I asked and they told me I had to go to the beer store. I thought they meant a package store, so I asked directions and had to drive about 10 minutes, but sure enough I shortly passed a place that had a sign outside that simply said "Beer Store."If you have never been to a beer store in Canada, I highly recommend it; such awesomeness is a sight to behold.

clane: Liberal's are funny
justneal: Now I do love the beer store, but it is run by the two largest brewers in the country, and screws over the craft brewers
Mock26: "Brewers Retail Inc. pleaded guilty to failing to acquaint a worker with a hazard in the handling, storage or use of a liquid chemical agent," read a Friday afternoon statement by the Ontario Ministry of Labour.This is what I have a problem with, the wording of the ruling. Do not get me wrong, the store in my opinion is clearly guilty of neglect, but that wording seems a bit dodgy to me. I makes me think that if he had actually been drinking Windex out of a Windex bottle and died that the store would still have been guilty if they had not expressly told the worker, "Do not drink the Windex."
Iron Felix: ...nice doglover...I'll also add that it sounds as if they were just refilling jugs from a bulk dispensing system which is probably some home brew to begin with (no pun intended). Funny its the beer store though, as they don't sell liquor.
Cletus from Canuckistan: Transplanted Ontarian here, can anyone give me the back story why Beer and Liquor are sold by two different entities -The Beer Store (Brewer's Retail - a private monopoly) and LCBO (a provincial crown corporation)? I always thought it was weird... not to mention inconvenient.
