My vote for our new council member, Bill Lawrence, has sustained a serious hit as to my faith.

Lawrence’s position regarding the various provincial liquor laws that govern his establishments and the due care and diligence required towards meeting the minimum requirements are a sad statement.

The “buck” stops with him as the licencee and owner. To argue this differently makes no sense and defies the responsibility he signs for when obtaining his licencing.

Minors and liquor are serious issues. Further, his establishments allowing more than the permitted number of people on a licensed premise do not address both policing and fire concerns – the very reason seating capacity is determined in the first place.

Blaming trickery by the enforcement branch is a very lame excuse, Mr. Lawrence, for not following the rules in the first place.
