Councillor Mike Layton, spurred by a tweet he was sent asking the same question, is submitting a motion that asks to temporarily waive the current law for Toronto Bars so they may be allowed to serve booze earlier than normal during the Sochi 2014 medal games, as well as the World Cup.
The motion is not dependant on the success of the men’s and women’s Canadian teams, so it appears the idea is based on the presupposition that Canada will be in a medal round. But let’s face it: they normally are.
The medal games for women’s ice hockey are to be held on February 20, 7 a.m. for bronze and noon for gold. The men’s bronze game will take place on February 22 at 10 a.m. and the gold the following day, February 23 at 7 a.m. Those are definitely early times to crack a bottle.
Council is expected to vote on the debate during next week’s meeting, so stay tuned. Until then, Go Canada Go!
Make sure to share this post if you like the idea of cracking a cold one a wee bit earlier to support Canada's men and women!
