N.S. judge clears way for Sunday shopping
Updated Wed. Oct. 4 2006 11:12 PM ET
HALIFAX -- Premier Rodney MacDonald is clearing the way for wide-open Sunday shopping in Nova Scotia now that a judge has struck down regulations aimed at preventing two grocery chains from staying open seven days a week.
A Nova Scotia Supreme Court judge issued a ruling Wednesday that said the regulations unfairly discriminated against Atlantic Superstore and Sobeys.
Soon after, MacDonald said the province will not appeal the decision, and will update the regulations by this Sunday to create a "level playing field."
"This decision means that retail stores will not be restricted by the government," said MacDonald. "Retail stores of all types may choose to open on Sundays and other holidays, with the exception of Remembrance Day."

Now, if they allow the NSLC to open on Sunday, you'll see riots in the streets.
