AGCO Stepping Up Inspections in Thunder Bay

THUNDER BAY – LEGAL – The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario has suspended the liquor licence for a local licenced establishment for thirty-five days.

The suspension for ‘Babes Tavern’ operating at the ADEN Night Club will start on January 2, 2014 at 2AM and ends on February 6, 2014 at 2AM. The move by the AGCO comes as a result of incidents at the establishment.

In documents received by NNL, the AGCO states, “The particulars are that on October 19, 2012, a patron was seriously assaulted in front of the licensed establishinent. Police requested a copy of the surveillance video for October 19th on several occasions. On October 29, 2012 advised police that he had watched the surveillance video for October  19th . However, on October 30, 2012 police were advised the video footage had been lost and was not available”.

“On October 28, 2012 intoxicated patrons were at the  establishment. The intoxicated patrons left the establishment together and all were in a motor vehicle that was being driven by one of the intoxicated patrons. The driver of the vehicle struck a pedestrian.”

“Further that, on November 10, 2012, an intoxicated male patron was observed in the licensed establishment”.

The original suspension sought by the AGCO was for a sixty day suspension, however the licence holder and the AGCO amended that to the thirty-five day suspension.
