Quebec has just passed a bill allowing restaurant owners to sell alcohol with food delivery orders on apps like Uber Eats.

Thanks to Bill 72 (which was passed on Friday) restaurants are now also allowed to sell alcohol to customers without requiring them to order food, something only businesses with bar permits could do prior.

Quebec Public Security Minister Genevieve Guilbault took to Twitter to announce the news and state the change was effective immediately.

"Thank you to colleagues from all parties," she wrote. "When we want, we can!"
