Board chair confirms NYE liquor extension

| 03/12/2012

New Years Eve iStock_000021156147XSmall.jpg(CNS): All liquor licence holders have been granted extended opening hours this New Year’s Eve. Mitchell Welds, the board chair, confirmed Monday that holders will be permitted one additional business hour beyond the regular closing times specified on their licences. “The extension applies to all seven categories of licences,” Welds said.  “But different categories have different closing times.” He also reminded business owners that licence stipulations will still be in effect. “Liquor sales and the playing of music must cease during the last ten minutes of permitted opening hours for retail, hotel, restaurant and beer/wine categories of licenses and all customers must vacate the premises before closing.”

For more information, licence holders and members of the public may contact the Liquor Licensing Board Executive Secretary, Marva Scott on 244-3168 or email

    Anitquated laws are for past times. Why does the liqour licensing board still have a say on music and dancing?? Why are they still issuing music and dancing licences to establishments that do not have the infrastructure to accomodate music and dancing.  Its 2013 and time for change!!!!
