Liquor talk...

Classic:

In the most serious case this year, the Mister Salsa Dine & Dance Place, at Douglas Street and Pandora Avenue, was fined $17,500 for serving too much liquor when it only had a food licence, and for failing to produce documents when asked by inspectors.

Mister Salsa Dine & Dance had a primary food licence, which gave it permission to sell some liquor if the majority of business was food. However, almost no one ordered food, inspectors said.


And now the best part:

When an inspection team arrived just after midnight March 30, the owner and 20 patrons formed a semi-circle and began yelling at them, an inspection report says. Inspectors returned in early April to find the restaurant abandoned. They have since been unable to contact owner Robert Anazco Sanchez.

I heard a local pub was recently fined because the staff were spotted wearing t-shirts with beer logos on them. Is this against liquor regulations?

 

EDIT: Apparently so:

 

Dress – Servers must wear clothes and must not combine the act of serving with stripping or exotic dancing. Servers must not wear brand-identified clothing where the size of the advertising is so prominent that it would result in your establishment promoting a specific brand of liquor

It's a grey area. Spmeone must have been really pushing, after warnings.

I'm thinking that's a crazy outdated law because of the inconsistency. On one hand servers can't have a beer logo on their shirt for fear of favouring one brand over another--yet look around the bar and on every surface you'll see (for example) Phillips signs, clocks, chalkboards, beer mats etc. etc.

 

I guess the bar itself can promote the beer and the server can verbally tell you  it's the preferred beer (Evening folks; tonight. Blue Buck is on special...) but their clothing can't have a prominent logo. Everything else can have a logo but the server's shirt. Weird.

Why is it so difficult to revise these rules? Some of this stuff is absolutely ridiculous.

Sometimes government just needs to say, "who is this law protecting, and protecting from what?"

I messed around, and you can still search them but it's not user friendly.  I didn't find a list.

People who live near Catalyst Paper’s Crofton Mill found their homes, cars, and children’s toys covered in an oily mess this morning.

The company admits it’s responsible, after a mechanical breakdown sprayed residual liquor into the air for about half an hour.

That's a serious liquor infraction, for sure.

I hear this was for serving a minor, second infraction. Inspectors have been out in full force.

Oh don't be so naive.  Could it possibly be that the liquor industry isn't controlled by organized crime so it is treated differently?

It's just that there is no regulatory inspection framework in place for marijuana shops.  A 12-year-old could buy pot there and even if bylaw officers saw it, it would not have any consequences really.

Canadian Food Inspection Agency
...... Recall details

Ottawa, May 2, 2017 - The Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) is recalling Bombay Sapphire brand London Dry Gin from the marketplace due to high alcohol content. Consumers should not consume the recalled product described below.


This recall was initiated after the discovery that, during production, one batch was bottled before correct dilution to achieve the stated 40% alcohol content by volume. As a result, the affected batch has alcohol content by volume of 77%.


........ http://www.inspectio...9/1493776863650

I will be offering a free disposal service, PM me.

Had people around me drinking Bombay
Gin last week they did seem surprisingly tipsy.

Potential for unwilling drunk driving.
