While Prince Rupertâ€™s economy may have seen a few better days, sales of Alcohol in the city are doing quite well thank you very much.
Statistics released from a number of sources provide data which shows that on the North Coast, sales increased 38 percent in 2006 from their levels in 2005.
When it comes to the rankings of communities across the province, Prince Rupert is holding its spot at 27 of the 395 municipalities that were surveyed.
Overall in Prince Rupert, each resident has spent 343 dollars more in the purchase of alcohol per year, a rather startling number when you factor in the idea that more than likely a fair number of residents probably donâ€™t imbibe as much as some of their neighbours, but apparently those that do, really do!!!
