Amid warnings from the world's largest business organization about the risks of breaking signed contracts, Premier Doug Ford insists a compromise can be reached with the Beer Store to expand sales.

Ford said negotiations are continuing despite the Progressive Conservatives' unilateral cancellation of an accord with the major brewers signed by the previous Liberal government.

Under terms of that 10-year "master framework agreement" inked in 2015, taxpayers could be on the hook for $1 billion in financial penalties paid to Molson, Labatt and Sleeman, which control the Beer Store.
