If the Manitoba Liquor Control Commission is doling out free Winnipeg Jets tickets to provincial government officials, we could have a very Canadian political firestorm on our hands.

The minister responsible for the liquor commission, Jim Rondeau, says staff are still working on the information and it will be provided soon.
