Restaurants that don’t comply with Ontario’s proof of vaccination system not only face fines, but they could also lose their liquor licence.
Such is the case for a pub in Kingston.
A Kingston sports pub accused of refusing to follow Ontario’s new proof of COVID-19 vaccination system has had its liquor licence suspended.
The Registrar of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission says it has also issued a notice that it intends to revoke J.A.K.K. Tuesdays’ liquor licence for failing to conduct business in accordance with the law.
It says signage posted at the pub indicated it would not comply with vaccination requirements that took effect last month, and Kingston’s public health unit has received several complaints.
It says inspectors visited after bylaw officers charged the licence holder with violating the Re-Opening Ontario Act last week.
The liquor licence was suspended after they found he was still not complying.
