Bad day for the Toronto LCDH Part 2


Recommended Posts

Just to update my post of yesterday as I went to the shop this morning. The sellers told me that they have consulted a lawyer about the matter. Let's see what will happen then.

I am referring to my post of yesterday entitled 'Bad day for the Toronto LCDH' in 'The Water Hole' section.

Best,

Michel

Good for them. I hope the law on the books isn't anti-business, which this inspector obviously is. God I wish I had been at the LCDH that day. I would have demanded for the inspector to recite the relevant statute to me or come back with a copy of the law he is supposedly enforcing.

In my state a restaurant without a liquor license can allow their patrons to bring their own wine and provide the glassware while charging corkage for the service, but won't allow a restaurant with a liquor license to allow their patrons to bring their own wine and charge corkage. This is how crazy these laws/statues can be. I wouldn't be surprised if this inspector believes the law read one way when it actually reads the opposite. I would also like to know if the inspector is specifically targeting the LCDH because it sells tobacco, while ignoring other establishments who do the exact same thing. Maybe his next stop was the Wedding Dress Shop where they serve a glass of Champagne to the bride in celebration of her finding her dress. . . .

Aaron,

I'm pretty sure it has to do with Starbucks nextdoor.Somebody was bitching while we were sitting there and enjoyed our smokes.Do you remember that gentleman you talked to.He was sitting right next to that SB patio.SB is also known for starting unfounded lawsuites.

Hans,

I didn't notice anyone complaining, but I wouldn't be surprised. All would be well if Ontario had half a brain and figured out letting cigars smokers smoke inside cigar shops would actually make people happier than driving them outside onto patios where wind can blow smoke in other people's faces. But I guess they know better than us. . .

Squarehead I have been to the LCDH every Saturday for almost 2 months and i see people complain to the SB staff all the time that the smoke is going onto the patio and bothering them (for those of you who don't know SB does not allow smoking on there patios). If the SB has complained to the city there is not much that they can do about the smoke they have made the law so we can only smoke outside opsed to in the shop where the smoke will not bother any one
