The Licence Appeal Tribunal (LAT) has denied an appeal and decided to extend J.A.K.K. Tuesdays’ interim liquor licence suspension pending its possible permanent revocation.
J.A.K.K. Tuesdays’ owner, Kelly Hale, had appealed the suspension after the licence was initially suspended on Thursday, Sept. 30, 2021 for the establishment’s continued non-compliance with the Reopening Ontario Act. That appeal was heard this week and the LAT’s decision was released today, Wednesday, Oct. 27, 2021.
In a follow-up response, the AGCO said that it “is committed to ensuring that the alcohol sector is operated with honesty, integrity and in the interest of Ontarians.”
“Today we received the independent Licence Appeal Tribunal’s (LAT) decision to extend the interim suspension of J.A.K.K. Tuesdays’ liquor licence until their hearing is concluded,” the AGCO continued.
The AGCO declined to comment further regarding the pub’s licence suspension and possible permanent revocation, saying “as the matter of revoking J.A.K.K. Tuesdays’ liquor licence is still before LAT we cannot offer additional comment.”
