    The results from the paper (my bolding):

    A 10% increase in provincial minimum alcohol prices was associated with an 18.81% (95% CI: ±17.99%, p < .05) reduction in alcohol-related traffic violations, a 9.17% (95% CI: ±5.95%, p < .01) reduction in crimes against persons, and a 9.39% (95% CI: ±3.80%, p < .001) reduction in total rates of crime outcomes examined. There was no significant association between minimum alcohol prices and non–alcohol-related traffic violations (p > .05). Densities of private liquor stores were not significantly associated with alcohol-involved traffic violations or crimes against persons, though they were with non–alcohol-related traffic violations.

    I was a little skeptical at first, but the bolded section above is interesting. Although, it makes me notice that the other crimes are not qualified in the same way - just "crime in general" rather than alcohol related.

    The last sentence sounds like a correlation without causation, which is an interesting tidbit for the recent debate in Ontario regarding alcohol being available more widely than previously.
