Premier Doug Ford says he "takes responsibility" for the summer alcohol shortages at the LCBO, after a new warehouse management system delayed deliveries to stores across the province.

The crown agency implemented the new system at its Durham regional warehouse just before the Canada Day long weekend but technological glitches created a backlog of alcohol deliveries and led to bare store shelves.

"They had 30 year old software and they had to upgrade it," Ford said today, commenting on the shortage for the first time.
