The province of British Columbia made some changes to liquor laws this past year, easing up on certain restrictions that governed the sale of liquor at events. This includes regulations in stadiums and arenas.
As a result the Dynamiters Hockey Club has come to City Council requesting that their Arena Liquor License Agreement be changed.
Up to this week, a small selection of beer, cider and coolers were offered for sale at games. The Dynamiter Club would now like to include liqueurs to mix with coffee and hot chocolate.
This is already allowed under the club’s permit from the province, but the agreement with the City is written in very specific language and an amendment has to come through Council.
Council had no problem okaying the change, noting it was only liqueurs to put in hot drinks being requested, not any other hard liquor.
