As the driver you could be charged under section 32. (1) of the Liquor Licence Act, the maximum penalty under this section is a fine of $100,000 or imprisonment for a term of not more than one year or both. Now I doubt you would get something that harsh on a first offence but it still is not worth the risk. I have quoted and linked to the law below if you want to read further.

http://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/html/statut ... e.htm#BK72

32. (1) No person shall drive or have the care or control of a motor vehicle as defined in the Highway Traffic Act or a motorized snow vehicle, whether it is in motion or not, while there is contained in the vehicle any liquor, except under the authority of a licence or permit. R.S.O. 1990, c. L.19, s. 32 (1).
Exception
(2) Subsection (1) does not apply if the liquor in the vehicle,
(a) is in a container that is unopened and the seal unbroken; or
(b) is packed in baggage that is fastened closed or is not otherwise readily available to any person in the vehicle. R.S.O. 1990, c. L.19, s. 32 (2).

Passenger is "liquor other then home."
If your are not drinking maybe liquor readily available.

Not sure about prices , just don't do it.

No its not normal to do that, and you might have a drinking problem if you are contemplating such things. Why dont you just drink in a bar and then get your friend to drive you around after? You should not drink in the car as a passenger. Thats a very stupid thing to do. It also gives drinking access to your driver (who might ask you for a sip if hes also that stupid enough to allow you to drink in his car, while driving you around to get "hammered").

Then again, there have been drivers who have been stopped for drinking alcohol while driving... in front of a marked police cruiser. (Just ask the OPP who patrol the 400 on a summer long weekend.)
