Supermarket served with liquor licence suspension
The Department of Liquor and Gaming has order바카라사이트ed Starbucks to remove liquor from all retail establishments owned or operated by a licensee in exchange for a $50,000 credit on the company’s credit account and a $1,000 fine.
The Ontario Municipal Board said the company violated the province’s Retail Liquor and Gaming Licences Act.
Starbucks is asking the OMB to suspend its license for 90 days under a settlement reached with the OMB on Jan. 31. Starbucks agreed to the suspension and pay an undisclosed amount to the OMB, but has not yet received the total payment.
Municipal Board President John Sifton said Wednesday that the fine imposed 바카라on Starbucks under the settlement “reflects the serious criminal activity that occurred at the restaurant.”
“We will continue to work with the government of Ontario to ensure all affected businesses are aware of our ongoing enforcement activity,” he added.
In addition to the cash payment, Starbucks agreed to make quarterly audits of its retail operations to ensure it complies with the licensing legislation, which requires a minimum of $5 million in compliance annual expenditures.
Starbucks will have until Sept. 30 to pay the fine and repay the OMB if it breaches the law, 더킹카지노or go bankrupt.
If it fails to pay that $5 million by then, the Ontario government will step in to pay the fine.
While the provincial government is “encouraged” by the settlement, Mayor Bonnie Crombie said it is still a “long road ahead.”
“We will always take the best interest of our customers, staff and customers — including residents of downtown Toronto — very seriously,” she said in a statement.
Crombie went on to say that city council will be working with the company to create a plan to implement new measures to improve customer service.
The settlement with the OMB is the latest court action against Starbucks, which has been fighting in court over issues like worker safety and the safety of its own employees.
