santa-beer Canadian brewery Labatt launched a controversial advertising campaign for Labatt’s Blue de-alcoholized beer, under the slogan “Leave one out for Santa. He’s driving.”. It made its debut at 45 Mac’s stores across the GTA in November and will run until month’s end.
But some consumers say it sends the wrong message. “I don’t think that’s quite appropriate,” said Kathleen Clifford, 65, who saw the ad at a Mac’s at Gerrard and Mutual Sts. yesterday.
“Children see that and they think we’d better leave beer for Santa instead of cookies and milk.” she said. “I have grandchildren and great-granchildren and I don’t approve of it. “Maybe I’m an old fuddy-duddy.”
santa-beerBut Labatt said the message is to remind people not to drink and drive. “It’s reminding people, especially during this holiday season, when people are going out to celebrate, not to drink and drive,” said Catherine Pringle, corporate affairs manager of Labatt Breweries of Canada. “Some of the posters direct people to makingaplan.ca, which is a website to plan ahead and reinforcing people not to drink and drive,” she said.
Mothers Against Drinking and Driving said it has no problem with it because it’s alcohol-free beer — even though it actually contains “0.5% or less.”
Santa may be trading in his plates of cookies and glasses of milk and sucking back cold Labatt’s Blue this Christmas.

    I just joined this sweet place. I found loads of useful information here. Please accept my little contribution towards community. I would like to share some quick weight loss tips. If you need to know how to lose 10 pounds in a week, you are likely not seeing for a standard diet and exercise plan. You can lose weight with a common diet and work out plan, However this demands a lot of time doing intense cardio practises and following a strict diet. Here I will draft the perfect steps that I took to lose 10 pounds in just a week.

    1. Stay away from all fried foods for the week
    2. Drink an 8oz glass of Citrus paradisi with breakfast each day. (this speeds up up your metabolism)
    3. Consume limited portions (stop consuming when you are full)
    4. Instead of taking 3 big a meals a day, eat up 5-6 small meals to keep your metabolism up and keep your body burning fat.
    5. Aviod eating after 9 P.M.. Its good to eat before 9 P.M. so that our body gets proper time to burn calories before sleep.
    6. Proper sleep is necessary everyday.. Not taking plenty rest has been proved to be a ranking factor to the body storing excess fat.
    7. Utilize a body/colon clean for the 7 days. This will get rid of unneeded weight stored just about the tummy area as well as cleanse your body of harmfull pollutants that cause you store fat and feel tired. Flush away excess pounds around the stomach area that otherwise would be hard to lose.
    8. I suggest you using Acai Berry Diet Pills. This one is tested to work, and you can get a free trial.
    9. For those mens/womens who want to burn fat quickly, avoid alcoholic beverage.
    10. A low GI diet is an superior method of loosing weight quickly.
