With the tagline Thanks Alcohol!, our new public awareness campaign targets binge drinking and encourages young Albertans to think about the choices they are making with respect to drinking.
“Promoting responsible choices is a big part of the AGLCís mandate, and we continue to work closely with industry and community partners to encourage safe and responsible consumption. Asking young adults to reflect on their drinking habits is, above all, very important for their long term health; it is also another important step in getting to a culture of moderation.”
