Does WestJet allow booze in checked luggage?

Flying in Canada from Ontario to Nova Scotia. It's a plastic 60 pounder, unopened.

    The Canadian Air Transport Security Authority permits alcohol in checked bags, with certain limitations.

    See: http://www.catsa.gc.ca/Page.aspx?ID=26&pname=Trave...

    And click on the link to "Can I bring alcohol with me in my carry-on or checked baggage?"

    Or read this excerpt:

    = = = = = = =

    Passengers may transport bottles of alcohol in their checked baggage if:

    * The percentage of alcohol by volume is 70 per cent (140 proof) or less

    * For alcoholic beverages, between 24% and 70% alcohol by volume, the quantity does not exceed 5 litres per person.

    Note: alcoholic beverages containing 24% alcohol or less are not subject to limitations on quantities.

    Just make sure that the bag can't be opened by the handlers. They could end up partying at your expense.
