My northern state requires all liquor shops to be closed on Sundays which is good idea. But in the southern states, why they close all the regular shops (any stores) on Sunday morning until 1 or 2 p.m. and then they close at around 4 p.m. Where is the fun that people can enjoy and walk around the stores on Sundays if they do not feel like to attend their church once a while? That is kind of creep to me.
Sunday shopping used to be illegal here in Ontario. The only places that were allowed to remain open were the gas stations, convenience stores and tourist areas. We finally made an amendment to the law to allow the stores to remain open on Sundays in 1992. Some people actually ended up in jail for breaking the law.
